1. IDF must patrol Philadelphia corridor again
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (01.15.13)
The IDF should have never given up this strategic border. It's time to patrol it once again. We now realize that abandoning Gaza to Hamas terrorist was a tragic mistake. We liberated Gaza twice, perhaps three times a charm.
2. IDF must RETAKE the Philadelphia corridor again.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (01.15.13)
3. Obama is wrong when he says that Israel will be isolated
Cipora Julianna Kohn   (01.15.13)
the murderous islamist terrorists do all in their power to enter israel and stab and blow up as many israelis as possible.
4. #1 Tunnels
Get Real ,   UK   (01.15.13)
This tunnel is on the Israel/Gaza border and its construction date needs to be confirmed.Nevertheless it shows the evil intent of Hamas to use it to infiltrate into Israel to carry out acts of terror,murder and to kidnap Israeli soldiers as per their previous announcements to do another Schalit deal. Also Israel needs to counter Palestinian PR announcements that it is always 'peaceful farmers' that are fired upon when rioters attempt to damage or cross the security fence.
5. #1 PA deal & Philadelphia corridor
Get Real ,   UK   (01.15.13)
Israel withdrew from Gaza only to see it taken over by Hamas and used as a base for persistent terror attacks against Israel.One can only wonder if the same would recur , when a peace agreement is made with the PA only to see a further Hamas takeover followed by a reign of terror. There being no proper control of the Philadelphia corridor has left it open to arms smuggling and after Hamas has re-armed will inevitably lead to another round of hostilities.
6. "Large army forces"? Does that mean really tall soldiers?
Scott ,   USA   (01.15.13)
How does Ynet come up with these jems?
7. w# 6 Scott an army of giants or a lot of midgets?.
bad Assed Jew ,   United States   (01.15.13)
or a lot of troops may also mean many men.
8. The rat's allegory running underneath earth
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.15.13)
That´s Hamas.
9. american promises
shloime ,   toronto, canada   (01.15.13)
the americans promised: 1) to provide israel with sophisticated equipment to detect tunnels, and 2) to deploy american troops in sinai to stop hamas/al qaeda operations. neither one has materialized, but in exchange, israel has lost the initiative in fighting the terrorists. whether washington intended it or not, they have certainly been protecting hamas for the last 5 years.
10. Remove the pals

Justjams ,   Jerusalem   (05.22.13)
Jews did the same during ww2 , all of you seem so upset about israelis getting killled, wht about all the palestinians that are killed? Palestinians must resort to a different fighting style, they have no jets, tanks or even an army to liberate occupied land, im sure israelis would do the same

Ben David Shlomo   (05.30.13)
I have seen pics of the sewer pipes that the scared Israelis use in Sderot as bomb shelters. Who are the rats? You are of course!
13. #4 Get Real
Ben David Shlomo   (05.30.13)
Israel is at war with Palestine and therefore the Gaza area. Hence the Israel soldiers are CAPTURED-not kidnapped, you fool. The IDF fired at the farmer's legs, yet hit them in the chest and head? Curved guns perhaps.
14. #11 I agree with you
Ben David Shlomo   (05.30.13)
How quickly the jews forget. How convenient for them.
