How disingenuous and self-righteous Israel is!
Israel wants us to believe that they are being attacked by a sovereign power ruled by an organized government bent on the destruction of of their country. However, their ability to keep the world's press out of Gaza belies the fact that Gaza is nothing but a ghetto constructed and controlled by Israel. If Gaza truly is a sovereign power with the ability to destroy Israel, then I'm sure that the press would have been able to make independent arrangements with them to cover the war on their land.
In the glaring light of their immoral actions, how does Israel explain to the world the fact that three times more Israelis were murdered by fellow Israelis than were killed by terrorists in 2008? Why is Israel "teaching Gaza a lesson," when terrorist deaths in Israel are at the lowest level in years?
