Ruth said: "The Gazan campaign was in retaliation for years of attacks on Southern Israel by well armed terrorist gangs operating from Gaza. Israel withdrew from their territory years ago but that didn`t stop the murderous shelling which brought life to a standstill for hundreds of thousands of innocent Israeli citizens. Is there one country in the world who wouldn`t react after years of aggression? HAMAS is responsible for the death of every innocent who died in vain during the campaign to obtain peace for southern Israel whilst the HAMAS leaders where living their lives in luxury villas in Damascus. They are a disgrace to their people!" At least you were courageous enough to admit as you said "was in retaliation for years of attacks on Southern Israel by well armed terrorist gangs operating from Gaza" So you admit to it being Collective punishment for past wrongdoings?
