It is time to right the wrong. Ethnically cleansing Jews from their rightful land and properties of Gush Katif in 2005 was an immoral act. As a result a mini terror state was created in it's place. Israel needs to rid itself of the terrorists and let those Jewish families return to their rightful homes to rebuild. Only then will there be peace!

Uncondional Surreder demand by Israel,to Hamas
one town at a time. The current military strategy makes it apear that the more it is bombs the bigger is winner mentaality. Inteaof attacking . Israel should have forrced the people near the boder with Eygpt to relocat to relocate eater by acepting sactionary from Esrael to leaving their town for another location the the GAZA territory. Motivate them by dropping a single block buter 15,000 pund bom on top of the tunnels but very clos to their town, IT will feel like an eathquake. IIf they stay, they are enemy cobatants Drop the second bomb on the town. contiue the process until you reach the sea Eygpt is so corupt that idsit is not capable of controlling its border with GAZA. . this cease fire will not hold because the flow rocket makig bill of materials will continue to flow into Gaza. The reponse ro Hamas's war of attriction must be toal scorced earth total war.

True and final peace can only happen with conversation. Hatred breeds hatred and bombs breed more bombs. All of this is easier said than done but diplomacy is the only way, not the threat of more bomb attacks, kind of like threatening your children so they behave better.
Israel's president/government must sit down with Hamas, Egypt, Syria, whomever, and all parties must earnestly ask and even beg each other for an ever lasting peace treaty, not a temporary one. We’ve been there, done that. Start somewhere to as for permanent resolution not temporary. It is how you say things, as well as what you say that creates the response.
Israel can even offer to help the Palestinians with their knowledge and technical expertise in all areas of daily living including building houses, schools and certainly hospitals and patient care, as Israel has the ability to do all of these things. This would be a win win for everybody. Someone has to reach out with a welcoming hand. It is more likely to come from us than from them.
I love visiting Israel. I have family there and I am always concerned for them.
Although I do not consider myself a very religious person, I do believe in G-d and I am sure that G-d would be very happy if we did something to stop this on-going war and the hatred that it generates.
After all, doesn't the bible, old and new testament teach us to love thy neighbor. Enough is enough.

Stop doing war
I pray that Palestinian people get a wise man/woman that cares for his own people, and stop doing war against Israel, and start building schools, hospitals, education to Palestinians. Hate is ruling this nation. Pray for Israel, pray for Palestinian .

Go after them
You are right. they have taken more gruff then anyone should. take care of this problem.

May the Almighty save those that can be saved - i.e. bring total conviction and cause the enemies of Yisrael to repent of their wickedness. Keep all the IDF soldiers and their families from harm.
November 19, 2012 3:38 PM
G-D can save EVERYONE. not just those who we think could be saved. pray for all of them!!

Continue to attack Hamas day and night until the rockets stop. If it takes the complete destruction of Gaza so be it. No other country would live under the conditions that Israel makes its citizenry live under. The non response by Israel to protect its citizenry makes it complicit in the ongoing terrorist activity. The streets of Gaza should look like a river of blood.
November 15, 2012 1:43 AM
Time for a clean sweep
It's time for the IDF to sweep through Gaza, house to house, to find weapons and destroy the house. Convince the peaceful Gazans (if there are any) to band together to overthrow their evil leaders and take over their own government.
November 15, 2012 4:04 PM
YES , GO ISRAEL
ITS TIME, YES!
November 15, 2012 12:41 AM
Only the Creator
There can be no hope for Israel in USA. Sadly we will now watch our own die for political expediency. While many, many in America love and support Israel, we are too few. But the Almighty will not stand by. Israel needs to turn to Him, as they did in the days of Hezekiah and Josiah. And we know, based upon God's Word, they shall. Let it be now!

Turn off electricity and water to Gaza when they attack and target terrorists for assassination. The more incon-veniant life gets in Gaza, the more the mass of people will be angry with Hamas.
November 13, 2012 9:46 PM
Take ten acres of Gaza for each rocket that lands in Israel
Israel should permanently annex ten acres of Gaza fir each rocket received from Gaza. This should be passed by the Knesset and published globslly prior to comming into effect. Let Hanas chose how much land they want to give up. Let the world know Hamas is making a free choice.

What are Israel's current "efforts to stop the Hamas rocket attacks"?

I am with Israel each day and night in my heart.Each time I SEE the news,a new video from Aish or one of my other Israel sites,I fear for all of Israel,and all of your people.I feel so helpless,so empty,so uncertain of the outcome on Sept 23,tell me what I can do and it Will be done.I love all of you,and if I were not on Social Sec,and could be there,I would give my life if necessary. I for one mean that with all my heart,soul and Spirit.May G-d be with all of you. Jim

It is so sad that people are taking the wrong message about war in Israel. The one and only thing we can do is pray to the One Above to send Mashiach TODAY!!!

Incredibly powerful! THANK YOU
This is the first time I have logged onto anything quite so effective. Sadly we are not in position to offer financial support but will surely pray! and will share the site with others.

Time for an answer to terrorism.
The IDF has held back for 60 years. The time is now to not hold back but unleash the full brunt of our military forces upon our enemies. The Torah states that we extend peace toward our enemies. Then when all of these peaceful extensions have failed do we go to war. How many more peaceful extensions do we need before more innocent Israelis are killed or worse kidnapped? The time is now to unleash the full fury of the IDF on the PLO. Not to kill but to drive out of our country fully. The time is now. Lets get it done.

How often is Sderot being bombed?
Very compelling video!! Where can I find out how often Sderot is being bombed. Is it still on a daily basis?Of course, your video makes me realize how the threat is always there. But what newsgroup or agency actually reports each rocket fired into Sderot? Also, what other cities in Israel receive these bombings? I suspect I have no concept of how widespread these bombing threats are on a daily basis for the people of Isreal. Where can I find such information? Thank You for your video! Shalom!
July 29, 2009 2:32 AM
No matter how many times I watch it, it always strikes me anew each time. It makes you feel for the people in Sderot in an easy to relate to way. It's not too gory but it portrays Sderot. May they be able to live thier lives in peace.
