    Why are people celebrating the death of these soldiers like this is a football match and their side has just scored a goal? No death should be celebrated regardless of whatever side they are from. This is why this conflict will never end, because people desensitize themselves, they start viewing the conflict as some sort of game, cheering on whatever side they feel is justified forgetting that these are lives we are talking about, human beings who have families, friends, memories and ambitions just like the Palestinians who have also tragically lost their lives in this hopeless conflict. You should be calling for peace not for more bloodshed.

    You really think Hamas is winning 'this war'?

    War should not be the answer. Instead of cheering on peace, you're cheering on death that isn't even going to lead to the end of this conflict? All Israel is going to do is become more intense and more Palestinians are going to die. Nothing to be proud or happy about.

    If you're going to be padantic, it's the way to potentially win a war the way that we fight war in the modern developed world.
    Si vis pacem, fac bellum, "if you want peace, make war
    si vis pacem, para pactum, "if you want peace, agree to keep the peace"
    Si vis pacem, para bellum, "if you want peace, prepare for war"

    What separates pro-Israelis and pro-terrorists, is that we don't go out in the streets to celebrate deaths.

    They do. They hand out sweets. They celebrated after decapitating a 3 month old Israeli baby.

    Do you want to become like them?

    Let the IDF deal with Hamas and we'll all show gratitude and breathe a sigh of relief when they are dealt with - but I would never want to be like one of them.
    You will probably die before you get to breath that sigh. And instead of going out on the streets and celebrating military successes you sit quietly in your homes supporting the slaughter of the innocent.

    Note how the BBC mentions the dead Israeli soldiers first before moving to the 500 odd Palestinians who have been murdered.

    Also if you guys have twitter, follow Jon Snow of Channel 4, Harry Fear and Ben White- amongst the journalists who still have some dignity remaining.

    Looks like John Kerry doesn't believe the Israelis are conducting themselves responsibly either. If only the US Secretary of State had the power or influence to do something about the bloodshed, huh?

    Britain ruled the land.

    There are never equal sides in a war. There are winners and losers. One follows a backward ideology one follows a hard working one.

    Oh and does that hard working ideology include the killing of innocent children?

    Ismail, Zakaria, Ahed and Mohamed. These are the names of the children killed by Israel while they played football on beach.

    What a great Ideology Israel has.

    LOL it all started because hamas killed 3 teenagers and continues to use women and children as human shields. Real great ideology you have there.

    I find the callous attitude some supporters of Israel have towards dead Arab civilians to be terrifying. It's so cold as to be almost psychopathic.

    Let us just take a step back. You seem to be quit happy making sweeping statements in a conflict where you have nothing to lose.

    This isn't about anyones 'Facebook hype' or pride on the internet. Right now, this second children and adults alike are dying in Palestine. You seem to be so cold and unresponsive towards that.

    I just gave you the names of 4 children killed and you just shrugged it off like 'oh well **** happens".

    The killing of the Israeli teenagers was a terrible thing but why should a country pay the price? why did those children pay the price?

    And a more important point to note is that this conflict hasn't just started following the killing of the teenagers, it has been going on for decades. Israel has invaded, killed and oppressed Palestinians ever since its (illegal) creation.

    More than 340 Palestinians have been killed. Thats not a small amount. If it was happening any where else in the world, that country would have the world to answer to and military action against it.

    Oh wow someone just got proven wrong now has to open up numerous issues. You might as well go work at the United Nations. There are no winners or losers in war only the ones left standing. Nothing new here.

    Israel has every right to protect its indigenous land.

    Continue swallowing that propaganda.

    Your attitude is truly horrible. You hold an agenda. You have already elevated the Jews to a superior position than the Arabs which to me is apartheid.

    So, the Palestinians are horrible people for been happy with the death of their enemies, but when the Israelis are viewing the killing of Palestinian civilians as entertainment it's fine? Double standards much?
