He was an IDF soldier that died in a recent incident in Israel's current operation in Gaza. Woke up this morning to the sounds of his mom's screaming, it was horrible. The news should reach the press soon.

Didn't know him personally but I know his brother fairly well.

 

I hope this doesn't turn into a hate-feud thread, just wanted to share my emotional perspective.

Yep

Decisions that were made during the Cold War are still fucking up the world. If the two superpowers had just stayed out of it and let the Israelis and their neighbors fight it out without funneling both sides money and armaments, this shit would have been settled long ago. They would have either found a way to live together or kept fighting until they ran out of guns, money, and warm bodies. But outside interference escalated the scale of the conflict and created a stalemate that neither side could live with. So here we are, 60+ years later and the conflict is still raging on.

This is what happens when there is ground combat as opposed to dropping bombs on civilian populations from a cowardly distance in the sky.

JOB - I feel sorry for the 4 innocent children the IDF bombed playing soccer on a beach.

So do I and the Israelis that have to deal with hundreds of bombs sent in by Hamas! The sad thing is they half brothers fighting! Both are sons of Abraham I wish they could remember that.

No other country would stand by idly while a neighboring country shoots rockets across its borders.

When the Palestinians stop the Jews should stop.

Ultimately, war is terrible but stop acting like the Palestinians are innocent victims. Police your own. If it's Hamas causing problems and you're a Palestinian that doesn't want issues, root out Hamas. Their beginnings are as a terrorist organization that has vowed to never recognize Israel. What should Israel do? Why shouldn't they respond? Phone Post 3.0

"No other country would stand by idly while a neighboring country shoots rockets across its borders."

No country would stand idly by while illegal settlements were created at the expense of the local population.

I love the "Israel has the right to defend itself" narrative. But Palestinians never seemingly have that same right. Meanwhile, Israel gets to kill countless civilians in the name of defending themselves and not ever be held accountable for it.

I don't believe that anybody has been killed by those "hundreds of bombs." A majority of them are shot down by Iron Dome, a missile defense system paid for by U.S. tax dollars.

But that doesn't lesson the injustice of the IDF soldier's death. RIP. Good thoughts to his family.
