They are paid to create chaos, and try to slow down Israel and its progress. Freedom & land are just excuses. This is what was created in Syria and we all know how it went.
2. Retake Gaza forever! End the suffering and misery
Chaim ,   Israel   (04.05.18)
Israel's government must admit the obvious truth that our Gaza retreat (like all Israeli retreats) was an absolute disaster. It is the root cause of virtually ALL our Gaza problems. Israel needs to retake Gaza forever. Put an end to the suffering and misery once and for all.
3. Israel has two win-win choices: 1- to undertake not to
Khalid Amayreh ,   Jerusalem   (04.05.18)
shoot to kill peaceful Palestinian protesters, in which case the Palestinians would cancel the planned burning of tyres.
2- Reach an agreement with Hamas via a third party (Egypt, Jordan, Germany, etc) whereby the protests would go unhindered in return for no proactive provocations from Hamas. That would be a win-win situations for all parties involved.
4. Betting that WHO will do nothing same as Raid Alg

5. Carpet bomb and napalm their side of the border
Julius ,   Baltimore, USA   (04.05.18)
To prevent ecological damage.
6. Train life fire on the eco terrorists !!!!!!!

7. Blinding the Ass Eyes
Gavriel Rechov ,   Dover, DE, USA   (04.05.18)
In the great manifestation of the next Black Friday, the Palis will try to blind the snipers by two means:

1. Creating huge clouds of smoke with burned tires, preferably when the wind blows to the east, under whose protection they will try to break the fence and move into Israel.

2. Focusing large mirrors that reflect the sunlight towards the snipers' positions to blind them completely.

To avoid both stratagems, it would be convenient for the shooters to be provided with self-contained breathing apparatus, multi-purpose night-vision viewers and polarized lenses for the normal viewers and binoculars.
8. Islamic enviromental terror
C   (04.05.18)
hamas wants to destroy all of the jewish state.

burning 10,000 tires is worse than the use of chemical agents.
the burning of tires will damage the environment for decades.
the harm to the population of gaza will be devastating.
israelis will suffer, but the gazans will suffer much more.
9. Damage Control
David Miltier ,   Kibbutz Gat   (04.05.18)
Major General Yoav Mordechai, your use of damage to the environment by tire burning is cynical when you allow the Gazans to dump raw sewage into the sea because of electricity cuts. The HUMANITARIAN DAMAGE for which you are responsible far out weighs all other considerations. Apparently the Palestinians have come up with a low-tech solution to a hi-tech army and you have no answers.
10. Has no one else thought of this
Albert ,   Zichron   (04.05.18)
Israel has several planes at their disposal, some of them pretty large, specifically equipped to fight forest fires, These should be deployed at the major air force base in Ovda which is pretty near by. As soon as the tires are lit up, their flames are doused and smoke damage and effect will be minimal.

Just a thought
11. Prepare the water planes - pour water on burning tires !
barbara ,   Haifa   (04.05.18)
12. running car engines and garbageeverywhere do harm daily
doda   (04.05.18)
is there no education about environmental issues in schools?!
Making laws is a joke here,as there is no consequence for braking it.
