  1. Dumb imbecile–returning fire is not sufficient you need to locate the perpetrator(s) and send him\them on a one way trip to heaven at the very least.

  2. So Bibi what did you accomplish with killing 67 soldiers this past summer, if HAMAS STILL calls the shots? We need change from Bibi, he is dangerous.

  3. The wounded soldier is fighting for his life and in grave condition. Please spread to daven in earnest right away, for Yakir ben Galit. Moderators, please post his name where it can be seen more clearly than in this little comment box. Tizku lemitzvos.
