Operation Cast Lead, One Year Later

Oferet Yetzukah – Operation Cast Lead, started on December 27, 2008 (the 29th day of Kislev) and lasted until January 18, 2009 (the 22nd day of Tevet).  This operation by the IDF came in response to literally years of terror, where thousands of kassam rockets were launched by Hamas from Gaza into cities and towns in the south of Israel.

As in every war there were the heroes, the wounded, and the fallen. As in every war there was the enemy, and despite the lies of the propagandists, they were soldiers, not civilians!

Perhaps for the first time, the access of the media to this war was controlled by the IDF, and Youtube played its part in hasbara.

For a look back at how it really was, check out this video (Hebrew with English subtitles)

    Yes Bemba, the Arab terrorists do need to be punished until they scream UNCLE and then surrender unconditionally to Israel.
