A pity more journalists refuse I to tell the truth
A great pity that so few journalists see their way to being as honest as this panel manages to be. The strong and plain truth underlying this horrifying conflict is the HAMAS CHARTER which swears to annihilate Israel and every Jew in the world. It is on the Web for everyone in the world to read. How strange, how very odd, that no-one - not even the American President - appears to have noticed it. Wilful blindness, which is ultimately just plain, old-fashioned, ugly, envious, greedy, hateful anti-Semitism.

one more thing
The Arabs just DO NOT WANT Peace! Their only GOAL is to wipe Israel off the map, but that is NEVER going to happen, because Ha Shem WILL protect HIS Land and HIS People, always and forever. ISRAEL IS ON THE MAP TO STAY!

The Whole World must not fold her hands and watch evil harrasing good!
Terrorist aggression should not be encouraged in any way or in any form. We all should value lives, since We can not create one.

they are right, but
DID YOU NOTICE THAT NOT ONCE DID THEY SAY THAT ISRAEL HAS LESS INJURED BECAUSE JEWS ALL OVER THE WORLD (and in israel) PRAY and PRAY DAY AND NIGHT? THAT ONLY BECAUSE OF G-D'S LOVE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND THEIR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER AND THEIR PRAYERS WE HEAR ABOUT SO MANY MIRACLES EVERY DAY????

Prayers that Israel, and thel world will be victorious over Terror
Let's not forget that it is the Almighty- God Himself-Who will provide the victory over evil. Science and technology are wonderful gifts, and God has enabled man to achieve great things through these, but Israel's triumphs over evil have been because the Lord has been with them. It is God's power over evil that ultimately wins. May He continue to give His blessing. This is Israel's time of need, and indeed, it is a time of need for the whole world, for if terror gains the victory over Israel it will not stop there, therefore we are all at risk. We all ought to be, in mind and heart on the front lines with Israel and all those who are victims of terrorism, and that includes the innocent Palestinians who are being used by terrorists. During the Cold War, President Kennedy showed his solidarity with the residents of Berlin against the evil of communism, so we all ought to show our solidarity with Israel, and in that way, we are united with all those threatened, attacked, and are suffering the effects of evil all over. In the name of the free world, and in then name of the Holy One we should stand by Israel with the proclamation: "I am an Israeli".

Video of boys playing football on the beach in Gaza
Has it ever occurred to anyone that it is very STRANGE that a video was taken of young Gaza boys playing on the beach just SECONDS before the bombs fell?
How did the person who took the video know IN ADVANCE ?
In my humble opinion these poor Palestinian children were purposely put in harm's way by Hamas, who were forewarned by the IDF that the beach in question would be bombed!
Hamas kill children for propaganda purposes and should be taken to the ICC!!!

An important correction
It is certainly refreshing to hear intelligent people who actually are able to see some of the truth of the terrible situation we here an Israel are currently facing.However, it is G-d and not our use of science/technology that is protecting us. There are TONS of miracles happening here that defy all logic. And as Jews we must where our protection is coming from. It says in Devarim 11:2 that G-d's eyes are on the land of Israel from the beginning of the year until the end.

I agaree Tziporah
I totally agree it is G-D Abraham Yitzak and Yaacov who watches over Yisrael. To him be glory!! Tehillim 91!! Am Yisrael Chai!!

God often chooses earthly agents to deliver His protection (see Megillas Esther). It stands to reason that He put the knowledge to build the systems that protect Israel into the minds of their inventors and courage into the hearts of the soldiers and the civilians so that His Glory could be demonstrated to the whole world. We're fast approaching the days when the whole world will know Him!Jews take the mundane (military weapons and computers) and in the Name of the Almighty elevate them to a means of protection (Iron Dome and warning apps). Hamas takes the sacred (human lives) and desecrates them for the sake of their cowardice (human shields).

Why the world wish so desperatly to see Jews dead?
Blaming us for being alive is not just as simple as it may seem to be, the world do not care so very much about the Gaza people, there's so much killing in all the Arab countries right now, and still there is no any demonstrations which call to stop it, but somehow there are the demonstrations all over the world against the Israeli self protective attacks on Gaza. Do we really believe that the world cares so much about the lives of the people of Gaza and is so indifferent to the lives of other Arabs?-of course not, the world cares about the lives of Gaza Arabs as much as it cares for the lives of other citizens of our planet, except of JEWS! Did Hitler hated our physical bodies?-NO. He hated the ideas which are transmitted through our bodies into this world! The world supports Hamas for the same reason the world supported Hitler! The world sleeps and dreams for the world to be the world they wish, the world which serves their egoistic wishes and drives, the world which has no CREATOR to judge it! It is those everlasting Jews, which do not let the world to be deadly asleep and dream about the world of their egoistic desires, it is the Jews which wake them up and are the alive proof of the G-d's existence.Do not make a mistake, that there are other religions, which believe in G-d, they believe in so called Providence which serves their desires and all the time it goes along, it is fine with them, but the moment their purposes are different from those taught by their religions,they quickly forget what is written in their books and do what their instincts drive them to do. Jews are those who do not let them live the lives they wish, Jews are those who states, that the G-d is One and His Laws are Eternal and may not be changed, just because they do not suit our egoistic nature, and this idea is as unbearable for our ego as any Jew alive for Hamas and the part of the world, which still hope in vain for the world without G-d.
