Israel says their missile defense system has intercepted as many as 130 rockets since Wednesday. CNN's Fred Pleitgen reports in Ashkelon, Israel.
What is Israel’s objective for murdering civilians especially young children? How is that defense? The answer is that they have no objective and there is no excuse. It is not a war. It is genocide. Since Israelis has gotten “their man”, why are they continuing to strike Gaza? If Israel has high tech arms, then how are they “missing” their “target” and are continuing to kill children? How can they kill two kids playing soccer outside, and then during their funeral, they attack them once again and kill a pregnant woman? How is that killing “terrorists”. There are no terrorists in Gaza. These people have a right to resist under occupation. It is not against international law, yet Israel continues to break 65 international laws and on the media they are portrayed as the victims.
There are three ways to end a war, to WIN, to LOSE and to MAKE PEACE. Israel can not afford to LOSE the war with the Palestinians (the number of Jews living in the Palestinian-governed areas of the West Bank and Gaza explains why Israel can not afford to lose). This leaves the Palestinians with the two remaining options and as long as they refuse to MAKE PEACE they will continue to LOSE and more Palestinians will be killed. When the number of dead Palestinians will satisfy those still alive they will ask for peace.
