    Jihad Misharawi of BBC Arabic holding his 11 months old son who tragically died in the attacks.

    Three Israelis were killed and four more injured in a retaliation strike againts Israel, reports BBC. Aproximately 200 missiles were launched, 145 of which were destroyed thanks to Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system.

    Controversy around the invasion thickens as news of fatalities surface. 14 Palestinians died in Israel's missile strikes and air raids so-far, mostly militiants, but also children. Heart-breaking photos of BBC's Arabic picture editor Jihad Misharawi, holding his dead infant baby who died in a fire which burst out after one of the strikes againts Palestine are all over the papers.

    Political reactions concerning recent happenings are mixed:
    Egypt condemned the strikes by recalling its ambassador to Israel and summoned the Israeli ambassador in Cairo. It also called for UN and Arab League meetings.

    As usual, the UN sits on their asses, "expresses concern" and does absolutely nothing.

    what do you want them to do?
    UN is represented by all nations who have different interests.
    they will rarely agree on interventions... look at Russia and China blocking all attempts against Syria
    Israel is a much more dividing subject!

    -.-"
    I realy realy hate these kind of conflicts...

    We'll never know what happens.
    Are the children targeted (or woman) specificaly?
    Are the children (or woman) used as shields by militants?

    Every media company can show it own "truth" in a conflict area.

    When Siria was in the news every day, I kept telling my parents:
    Who is the majority? The Anti-assad, or pro-assad? The news doesn't tell us anything about that.
    That made them wonder aswell.

    @Veho.
    They should take action indeed in this one.
    What they should do, I don't know. Both sides are stupid :/
    The Palistan millitants keep attacking Israeli's. The Israeli's keep occupying Palistan territory.

    About the previous revolutions.
    The UN shouldn't interfear in a revolution, a succesfull revolution comes from the people, not a external party.
    If the majority of the people want change, they can succesfully take over the country.

    Intervene. Do what they claim to stand for.

    My point exactly.

    I'm from Israel so my opinion is biased but some facts

    Israel is attacking qassam launch sites
    Hamas is attacking Israeli cities

    IMO, you are completely right, israel should give up those territories the moment that the palistan people can promise they wont attack israel anymore

    fyi, Israel is not occupying Gaza at all

    Now, mind you, children were also wounded in Hamas attacks againts Israel - both sides express very little concern about collateral and both sides should re-evaluate their priorities.

    Wat?

    Hamas is a group of extremists, that much I'm willing to give you, but they consist of freedom fighters and desire Palestine's autonomy - no more, no less. This is a territory-based conflict and always has been, religion was thrown into the mix only to stir it further.

    The thing is, the UN aren't peace makers, they're peace keepers.
    If that peace they've been keeping is lost...yeah, why don't they try to get that back?

    UN can't even do shit against ethnic cleansing, which was straight flat-out genocide, you expect them to do anything about this?

    [​IMG]

    I expect them to wait until the death tolls really hike up. Then maybe they'll rear their heads up to talk about it while injecting their own agendas and interests.

    Maybe, if we had strong no-bullshit leaders in that isn't afraid to get a few angry stares from all the bruised pride it's going to cause to the conflict participants. Maybe.

    I don't have enough expertise to really say much of anything on the subject especially with all the potential bias of historical accounts on both sides. All I know is that the whole war over Israel's existence has been in limbo for way too long. It wouldn't surprise me if I saw news like this again in 10 years.

    ...and the Palestinian activists submitted a complaint about Israel's policy of isolation of the strip directed specifically againts Muslims:
    Israel is not the only party ignored by the international community.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your point then. :)

    In any case, both parties have some dirt on their hands at this point and pointing fingers to try and find the "more" guilty party perhaps isn't the best of ideas.

    The U.N indeed appears to sit on their seats quite leisurely.
