Where were u when Hamass was violating the cease fire & shooting rockets into Israel forcing Israel to close the border? Israel did that instead of invading)
How come u don't accuse Hamass of violating international law when their members are taking off uniforms, dressing like civilians & firing from behind women & children?
Isn't it a violation of international law to place one's fighters in civilian areas?

How many churches are there in Saudia Arabia?
How many Christians have died in Lebanon?
Why are Christian Copts persecuted in Egypt?
Why were churches ransacked in Pakistan?
Why are Christians considered dhimmis, 2nd class status, according to the Koran?
This is one concert I will not attend.

NO ONE in the media is even mentioning the billions--yes billions--of dollars sent to the Palestinian governing bodies over the past five years. Was this money ever used to "improve living conditions" for the Palestinian people? NO! The money was used entirely on illegal weapons to enable Hamas to continue firing at Israel. It's very difficult to be compassionate towards the Palestinian cause. Israelis have built bomb shelters for their civilians all over Israel. Hamas can dig tunnels for weapons transfer---but not bomb shelters for it's citizens. The Palestinian "victims" voted Hamas as their "government" in the Gaza. Sorry, I just cannot even conjure up feelings of "sympathy" here.

So bombing civilians (as long as they are not yours) is OK? How many schools have to be attacked? How many people have to shelled for their own good?

600+ Palestinian dead vs less than 10 Israeli killed seems pretty disproportionate to me.

Hi, not commented here before but have lurked occasionally, anyway in case anyone is interested in protesting this (although obviously you have your own hands full already) you might like to know-

The U.S. military has sought to hire a merchant ship to deliver ammunition to Israel this month...
In the tender documents, the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command (MSC) said the ship was to carry 325 standard 20-foot containers of what is listed as “ammunition” on two separate journeys from the Greek port of Astakos to the Israeli port of Ashdod in mid-to-late January.
