Both Israelis and Palestinians died in the violence before Wednesday's cease-fire. On the Palestinian side, however, the number of people killed by Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip who were mostly civilians are slightly above 150.
The dispute over Israeli civilian deaths from Hamas rockets isn't about the numbers, but about their interpretation. More than 1,000 rockets have been fired at Israel, but a combination of their own imprecise targeting systems, Israel's missile-defense program and coordinated evacuations of civilians have kept casualties to a minimum. Six Israelis—two soldiers and four civilians—were killed in rocket attacks.
First of all, I've to forward my gratitudes to the Iranian Government for eminent support with fercilities on both the armed and the unarmed Palestinians, and also to the soccer legend in person of Christiano Ronaldo who has donated his 'golden boot' worth €1.5 millions to the palestinian childrens in Gaza.
DANBUZUICALLY, despite the huge difference in casualties between the two conflicting cousin brethren in what's never religious, but purely political with no more than two causes — Use and ownership of LAND and WATER. I'm of the opinion that Israel lost the battle to weak Palestinian fighters. Even the physically defeated party saw it that way, as they were jubilating on the streets of Gaza as truce was reached after Israel accepted Hamas' conditions. Shots were fired into the air, loudspeakers were calling God is Great. Gaza won, Israel lost…
The Palestinians of Gaza were able to defy Israel by their steadfastness and resistance. Initially, they use no more than stones and catapults for the both defensive and the offensive measures, but can now launch attack from Gaza as far as into the city of Tel Aviv. I think this is a great development on the Palestinian side, and with time, they're going to be matured on that aspect too!
Although this conflict dated thousands of years back when the Israelites finally did set their feet into the region after wandering in the wilderness in the name of EXODUS, and since then, Palestine have not known peace. So, I've only two questions for now:
1. Who's the rightful owner of Palestine between these two cousin brethren?
2. What's the main road-map to this conflict that have been existing across millenniums?
