This latest escalation into a conflict between the Hamas organization and Israel was ignited by the unusual attack inside the Mosque at the Dome of the Rock Holy site (in Jerusalem), during prayer services - by Israeli troops.
https://youtu.be/XeMD4q-Wm0U This prompted the Palestinian Muslims to launch a variety of rocket attacks against Israel territories - which did very little damage, since the home made rockets are nothing more than oversized fireworks with no guidance systems whatsoever. But that was enough to justify the full retaliation by Israel with the most powerful and sophisticated weapons on the planet. All focused on the Gaza Strip where over 2 million impoverished Palestinians live in reduced lifestyles - with no where else to go. A war between these two sides is extremely overmatched on the Israeli side, and has been for generations. It can be literally described as shooting fish in a barrel. There is no honor in EITHER side killing innocent men, women and children. This nonsense must end.
The solution? To end this stand off and save lives for generations to come, Palestinians should leave the middle east altogether and take asylum and land granted to them in South East Russia. Bury the attitude of revenge and learn to live and see your children grow up in peace - while they still have arms and legs.
The majority of the Jews and the Palestinians cannot live together in the same small location in the middle east. That point has been sufficiently proven over the years. There is enough blame to go around on both sides. This is not about what is fair or just, it is about stopping the carnage, rejecting the insanity and moving forward.
Palestinian families must ask themselves: do they want to live for peace? Or, do they want to serve the god of war, violence and death?
One side alone can stop this legacy of death. A massive exodus must take place so that both sides can avoid war and perpetual death. George Eaton

Netanyahu: "You will pay a heavy price"
"I said that Hamas will pay and the other organizations will pay a very heavy price. We are implementing it in practice, and we will continue with greater firepower.
"The final word has not been said and this operation will continue for as long as it takes to restore calm and security, " Netanyahu said.
No ground invasion (yet) - What happened last night
At the same time, the Israeli ED Headquarters denies that there was a land invasion. At least not yet.
What happened last night was "an extension of the conflict involving the Israeli artillery" but in no case was there a ground invasion.
A specific site that specializes in the distillation of production and distribution of Fake News was systematically misinformed throughout the night about the land invasion that began. So pay attention to what we read and from where.
