Last night Israel agreed and signed on a humanity ceasefire, which earlier today was even extended until 00:00 tonight. Yet even still, just now, Sunday morning here in Israel, Hamas has broken the ceasefire by shooting more missiles towards us. I can not tell you how terrifying the situation is for someone who actually live in this situation for 20 days of war, and more so, for years upon years of living under the constant threat of Hamas missiles (more than 12,000 rockets were shot towards Israel in the last 12 years!). At the same time I cannot explain to you the sadness I feel towards innocent civilians in Gaza who also live under the terror regime of Hamas, who constantly and deliberately using them as a human-shield and as leverage for its own propaganda!

How long can Israel hold its fire while living under this threat?
What would any other country do, especially when in ceasefire?

As an Israeli, I can tell you that we are NOT at war with the Palestinian people! We are at war against a terror organisation whose sole purpose and goal is to destroy not only Israel, but the entire democratic world! Hamas is a terror organisation who is against giving any rights or education to women, supports the killing of homosexuals, using animals as a 'living-weapon' while attaching demolition charges to their bodies and sending them across the border to Israel, and it's one and only motto is: "We love death more than the Israelis love life!"

I wish for this situation to end! Each day while I scan the Zohar, I pray for peace and a long lasting ceasefire on all sides. I pray for each and every Israeli soldier to return home safe and sound, and I hope that the entire world - not just Israel - will be able eliminate the threat of terror from each of our lives. I pray that not one more innocent life will be lost inside and outside of the Israeli borders and that we all truly live in peace. Amen, אמן.

...Not at war with the Palestinian people? Yet the Israeli army has killed like, what, 1000+ people and according to the UN at least 80% of the casualties are civilians? I don't like Hamas anymore than anyone else, but I think your whole country has gone way overboard with this. Also there's this thing: electronicintifada.net/blogs/a…

But it seems like you sincerely hope for a good solution for both parties (who wouldn't, honestly) and hopefully this whole tragedy will soon end.

Sending prayers to you. I have family in Safed, many first and second cousins. Delta airlines is avoiding flying into Israel because of all the danger that is present. Even if others are calming down and letting people go in there.

I always wanted to go to Israel and Jordan to see some special places such as the Dead Sea or the city of Petra build in rock face. But I fear I never will 'cause as long as I can remember there's been war and terror in that area. I can't understand how people can bear living under that circumstances, suffering and in constant fear. I suppose I would leave to find a safer place on Earth... :(

My support is not with any country or religion. My support is with the innocent trapped in terror, no matter what nationalities they are. There's always good and evil on both sides, otherwise there wouldn't be a fight at all. *sighs*

Stay safe.

Well, at least you see the bigger picture and know how to segregate terrorism from civilians. Ya'll over there need to just get along but neither government has found compromise over the decades. Far, far too much fighting since the 40's. Extremists are the issue as they tend to never budge on their own political and religious views that hinder peace. I support peace and I see no reason why the state of Israel and state of Palestine could exist on the same planet.  What's disturbing is that no other nation seems to be quickly intervening. It's as if no action is taken unless the land is rich in oil or something. 

Anyway, I'm pleased to hear your words and that you just are not spouting out the typical "down with Palestine" banter I hear from the Israeli side. Some hope in a crazy place in the world. Stay safe.

Please stay safe! I would cry if anything happens to you too. All my prayers go out for you and your country people. I heard about this happening, but people are making a big deal for the wrong side and people. Glad to hear (or read) actual stuff happening and the Israelis only want peace. The Hamas are the ones making people think both sides are bad when really it's them.

I have never heard of Hamas or the Israelis fighting terrorists instead of Palestinians. All of this is news is very new to me. If the Israeli's are being attacked by a terrorist, isn't there any country at least sending care packages to help? I am very ignorant on the current situation and I apologize for that

You can tell the biggest difference between Israel and Gaza. Israel as a whole care for their people. Shelters, Drills, Iron dome things to protect the people are made. Gaza seem to like putting weapons on building like Schools and hospitals and then they scream and cry that their women and children get hurt.

I wonder why people outside Israel accuse Israel of every bad things happening in the world (including natural disasters) and want is destruction (when Israel and average Israeli want nothing but peace), and they defend Hamas that is nothing different from Al Qaida and Co...

But even if they don't admit it, they deeply believe in what Hitler wrote in his 'Mein Kampf' .

Thank you! I'm used to reading only bad things about us, how we're always the only ones to blame, it's kinda like they turn the Hamas a blind eye for all they've been doing.
It's really tiring to live in a situation like this, I haven't been able to sleep much at all out if fear I won't hear the sirens, and won't reach a safe room in time.

I hope the whole situation will end soon, I feel bad for both sides, it's not the Palestinians fault nor is it ours. The Hamas is to blame, I can't understand how they don't care at all about the Palestinians, yet they use their suffering and deaths as a way to get the rest of the worlds' sympathy, while the rest of the world hates us.
How can they expect us not to retaliate with all this threat? :/

Either way, stay safe :hug:
