    yet Bibi never insulted American soldiers. No Israeli would EVER do that! –S The IDF harassed the US Marines in Lebanon in 1983. The issue was significant enough to warrant a letter from the Marine Commandant to Sec of Def Weinberger. See http://www.leatherneck.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-21542.html Hamas, which originally bragged about the disasters the IDF will encounter if going to war, and then hid among their civilians, shooting from among them, are a perfect army? So, how does one fight such cowards? And if they can`t fight the IDF, which is quite understandable, why do they continue their stupid "resistance"? ~ Because they found in Iran their raison d`etre. S Israel controls the only international border that Gaza has, the maritime coast. Israel controls who may enter, who may leave, what may be imported and exported. If you were kept in such a prison would you not resist? Iran is not what motivates them. Hamas was created not by Iran. If Iran were to become a friendly nation tomorrow, Hamas would still be in Gaza. It is the creation of Israel. Didn’t the Stern gang and Irgun operate among civilians in their terrorist war with England? The means available determine the tactics.

Operation octogenarian

In 1969, veterans of the Haganah, Irgun and WWII were asked to help defend the northern communities. The media described a giant success, but archives show they were mostly asked to help with the harvest.
