    the only way to pace is to live the Palistenian control their life don't give them a portion of the land and close it on them with no human rights. Hamas is fighting for dignity and the right to life wich any human will do. Israel barbarian war and war crimes will never solve a thing If you wipe Hamas today. all this children that you see today will be unather Hamas tomorrow because the cause is still there. Israel policy has to change to restore some peace. give a floor and see what will happened. since there giving death they will not see any peace.

    Their are several palestinian groups living in southern Lebanon, and it is quite apparent the rockets came from one of these groups. Israel has enemies all around them. Fortunately, the incident has not escalated into a widening conflict.

    Until the palestinian people prove they want peace with their Israeli neighbors the fighting and killing will continue. I agree that a greater effort is needed getting humanitarian aid to the people in Gaza, still the war goes on. If the palestinian militants would stop using children in schools and other people in civilian homes as "human shields" a great many innocent civilians would still be alive.

    A first step toward REAL peace in Gaza is for the palestinian people to denounce Hamas, whose goal is not to live in peace with Israel, but to destroy it and replace it with a Palestinian Islamic state in the area that is now Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. That is part of the Hamas Charter. Sadly, the people of Gaza voted for this terrorist organization, so if they really want to live in peace with their neighbors they must change the leadership in Palestine by voting for a different organization to lead them out of this seemingly endless hostility.

    I think this section of the world has been fought over since before the days of King David. Realizing that doesn't exactly fill one with confidence that the fighting will ever be truly over. I hope though that there will be enough people in the Middle East to push the agenda that it is in everyone's best interests for peace to prevail and a workable solution of who lives where rules. Its sad to think that the area of the world that the top 3 religions regard as Holy Land is constantly embroiled in hostilities among its residents.

    Israeli operation "lead cast" is turning out to be " lead casket " for the women and children of Palestine.
    I personally will never forget or forgive the Israeli government for this action. I am sorry that we are the suppliers of their tools for this barbaric behavior, especially in this time of financial crisis that they are doing this with our money.

    The rockets are probably from Hamas! They are trying to show that they can attack Israel from other places besides Gaza and get away with it.
