"This is a very densely packed city - 1.7 million people. No matter where you are, you are very close to rockets being fired - you see them being fired, sometimes you just hear them, oftentimes you see them flying up, you see the smoke trail and so for residents here it is a very dangerous time. "

    They need to have a Thanksgiving cease fire so they can all eat turkey and dressing and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    The smart thing for Israel to do (unless Hamas agree to cease-fire) is to move back in, take over indefinately, eventually hand over security to Palestinian Authority, but maintain a presence.

    The smart thing for Hamas to do, just stop firing rockets, idiots.

    the whole point of this is so people will turn to Our Saviour and refrain from sin. The whole middle east biblical history is all about helping people to Turn to Our Saviour some do some don't.

    i had palestine friends once and then i found out that they abuse their children and teach them to hate, i was very surprised. When Goliath was about to be defeated by David he said that if Israel succeeded the philistines would become their slaves and so this is what happened but they have free medical treatment is they want and education if they want it but they don't.

    The world is about be a big problem and i advise people to help each other as much as possible and try to promote peace if you can but begin with the family or friends. The God of Our Saviour be with you all and if you don't believe then all i ask you that when things get really bad as they will then at least give Our Saviour the chance to help you. Be open to the possibility that The God of Our Saviour will help you if you allow it.

    cnn is a very immoral news agency as most are, they give opinions and yet do the opposite such as allow those awful adverts next to unfortunate people in the news.

    But this is the world today infact nothing really wrong with the world its the people, they need to change not the world.

    CNN is very biased in reporting Gaza conflict.......the only thing they talk about is the people killed in Gaza they don't talk about what the Israeli's are experiencing

    Being annonymous on CNN boards sure makes all the rascist illiterate bigots spout out their trash talk. Go stand around at a real job and talk like that. No one likes bigots

    we are praying for all the people, even our enemies. We forgive them as anyone who harms Israel is against God.

    the muslim religion is from the adversary and this is why the leader of hamas son became a christian, its all on you tube, he speaks about the evil that is muslim and explains why he became a chrsitian.
