    Dead Mr. Abeer-ayyoub, My heart goes to all the civilians(both Arabs and Israelis) whom have been victimized in operation Pillar of Defense. Your article saddens me very much but how come you don't mention anything about Hamas and all the rockets that were shooting at Israel? I think we all know well who started this whole thing. If the people of Gaza are so desperate for truce, why don't they stop Hamas and prevent them from firing rockets at CIVILIANS? I repeat "civilians" and civilians only. With direct intention of killing any one they can-men, women, children and soldiers. Which army in the entire world drops leaflet-as you mentioned- to tell the civilians to evacuate and even navigates them through? There is evidence that clearly shows IDF and Air force aborting missions just because ONE civilian was passing by(you can email me and I'll send you te clips incase you choosed not watch them!). In 2005 Ariel Sahron left Gazs and let it be controlled by Arabs in a peace treaty and what did Israel get in exchange? I assure you not peace rather rockets shooting at its people. You as a journalist know better than I do that Israel is an advanced country whom is certainly not seeking war. but is it really too much to ask for peace and quiet? NO MORE rocket firing? No more suicide bombs? No more family murderingt? No more bombs in the buses. No more restaurant blowing. How many times did B.Netanyahu extend his hands to help Palestinians in U.N national conference but got no result back. Please forgive me if I'm wrong about anything I said. I'm just a concerned Jew whom is looking forward to peace as well as Gazans. . I have no hatrate for Arabs and hope one day "Arabs would love their children more than they hate jews". Thank you and once again I'm sorry for all the civilians.
