    It is not the IDF fault. It was said that they "fought like lions." Yes fighting civilians does make one proud. The true IDF proud elite special core WILL REFUSE TO TAKE PART IN THE INTIMIDATION AND EASY SLAUGHTER OF THE PALESTINIANS ESPECIALLY IN GAZA. I have read documents by many men in the IDF that said they will go to war and fight a REAL war against real soldiers. Those men of the IDF I am proud of. Real soldiers fighting against real soldiers, equally armed . I do not mean the absurd ROCKS vs a TANK, that usually ends up with a dead 12 year old kid at the hands of some Israeli soldier that does not meet the standards and professionalism of the REAL soldiers of the IDF. The entire world knows about the Israeli soldiers that are in Israel that are part of the occupation,...I'm not sure they are the real IDF ,...are they. I don't believe it. There must be two types of soldiers in the Israeli army,...the real soldiers of the IDF (strong and proud) and the other soldiers that are stationed in the occupation (weak and embarrassed) pushing little kids and old ladies around.
