Israel is commiting War Crimes:
111 Children Killed, 40 Killed Today at a UN School
White Phosphorous and Cluster Bombs used by Israel in Gaza
11 Ambulances Bombed
Israel Broke the Truce on November 4th and then increased the blockade on Gaza restricting electricity, food, water and medicine.
Israel’s siege of Gaza began on 5 November, the day after an Israeli attack inside the strip, no doubt designed finally to undermine the truce between Israel and Hamas established last June. Although both sides had violated the agreement before, this incursion was on a different scale. Hamas responded by firing rockets into Israel and the violence has not abated since then. Israel’s siege has two fundamental goals. One is to ensure that the Palestinians there are seen merely as a humanitarian problem, beggars who have no political identity and therefore can have no political claims. The second is to foist Gaza onto Egypt. That is why the Israelis tolerate the hundreds of tunnels between Gaza and Egypt around which an informal but increasingly regulated commercial sector has begun to form. The overwhelming majority of Gazans are impoverished and officially 49.1 per cent are unemployed. In fact the prospect of steady employment is rapidly disappearing for the majority of the population.Source(s): http://www.lrb.co.uk/v31/n01/roy_01_.html

I think Israel is completely the victim here. And a patient victim at that. During the first conflict, the majority of Arab countries in the Middle East tried to invade Israel, failed horribly, and actually LOST land in the process. Since then, Gaza has been a constant threat, shelling Israel with rockets and harassing in other ways of terrorism. Israel, generously, GAVE MORE LAND to Gaza. Yes, it might not have been much, but it was in hopes enough to stop the attacks. Gaza's insurgents repaid this kindness with more rocket attacks, and the purchasing of new longer-range rockets that will reach one-third of Israel's population.
Yes, it is bad that the citizens of Gaza have to endure Israel's invasion, but they are only seeking combatants, and unless a citizen of Gaza goes and picks up a gun and points it at an Israeli soldier, they should be relatively safe. Besides, how else would Israel forces stop these bombardments? There really is no other way. It's not their fault these terrorists don't understand how to share land.

Its hard to tell. But I for one think its Israel`s fault, if they didn`t lock up all the people in the Gaza strip, Hamas would not have fired rockets and motors at them.

Israel is only defending herself. If Hamas doesn't want to get bombed, they need to stop sending missiles into Israel. It's like a little kid who keeps poking his brother with his brother warning him to stop. But the little kid persists and finally the big brother smacks him. Then the little kid goes crying to his mother for sympathy.
