    Try a little balance. Israel IDF only attacked the Turks after they were beaten senseless with metal bars and some we kidnapped. (see the youtube videos) After fearing for their lives they opened fire on the mob. Then Israel was attacked from Egypt by terrorists who killed 8 Israelis. After chasing the terrorists back into Egypt Israel accidentally killed the Egyptians. Was Egypt not supposed to prevent terrorists from using EGYPT as a staging ground for attack? Does Egypt not bear some small responsibility? Omar, Israel greatly regrets the loss of life, and does not want any loss of life. Omar, do you know all the facts and choose to ignore them, or are you incapable of a little fact finding to make a sound judgement? Or do you hate so much you refuse to see facts that are in your face?
