You keep 1 1/2 million people behind the fences of the Gaza ghetto. IDF is armed up to the teeth with most modern weaponry which it tries out on a defenseless pupolation.And wasn't the timing of the operation to coincide with elections at that time. Barak needed some votes or is this really such a ridiculous suggestion? It is really appalling reading that the IDF chief is convinced that Operation Cast Lead was excellent. People's mind becomes brutalised.This must be the Israeli language of peace also heard by other Israeli poltiicans. They are all eager to get peace, but have completely lost its meaning.
