Israel is not doing a good thing.Not only is that nation so greedy to possess more land,but the brutal way in which she is doing so is really pathetic.

Hi Sameera,
Israel is fighting for her very survival as a nation although her ways are very brutal indeed. It all began with the rocket attacks of Hamas on territories of Israel. Israel retaliated to protect itself. That's the problem with a solitary Jewish nation surrounded by belligerent Arab nations. Of course the basic problem lies with the creation of Israel in 1947 from the land used to be occupied by Palestinians. Now the Palestinians are dispossessed and are also fighting for its very survival. It's really a very complicated thing in the Middle east with no clear cut solution for its problems in sight. Thanks for your visit and valuable comments. God bless you always.

It isn't pathetic, Sameera- It is criminal. Peace will come only when neocons and the religious right in the western states (Esp. US) start rebuking ISRAEL's Godless disregard for the lives of NON-Hamas civilians instead of acting as cheerleaders of the likud party.

The Old testament is full of rebuke for sinful Israel and the southern state, Judah. God didn't tolerate Judah and Israel's sins. So should we-- especially when 1000 lives were lost, half of them were children.

Dear Mel,
I really don't know too much about it but we pray for the peace of Israel.
The Jews are God's chosen children and although they have sinned so many times ,the Lord will forgive them and He will never forsake them
We Gentiles have been offered the same forgiveness and when we accept the Lord Jesus as our substitute for our sin, He will save us and never forsake us!
Romans 11:26
And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
Hebrews 8:10
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Revelation 21:12
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

I love the Jewish and the Arabian people.
They are brothers, children of Abraham and in God's own time, they will be living at peace...
With Christian love, Terry

I would hope that God's chosen people would behave in a way that shows the world justice and compassion. This action shows neither.
