Chip, your bias and ignorance are appaling. IDF stands for Israel DEFENSE Forces. Their job is to DEFEND the country and its citizens. If not for the IDF, the sub-human Arab beasts would murder, terrorize and destroy. When the terrorist slime, that YOU defend will be destroyed, the IDF will not need to take these actions. Every killing by the IDF is a result of Arab actions, be it rockets, bombs, etc. That somebody in Gaza is killed is untimately thanks to Hamas. Then again, they never cared about their people anyway. The Palestinians are just pawns. Get rid of Hamas and their murderous, uncompromising, racist ideology, and we'll be on the path to peace.
