1. Interior Minister Eli Yishai said: "The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years."
2. Politician Michael Ben Ari told the soldiers: "Brothers, beloved soldiers and commanders! Preserve your lifes. Don't give a hoot about Goldstone! There are no innocents in Gaza, don't let any diplomats who want to look good in the world endanger your lifes at any tiniest concern for your lifes. Mow them!"
3. Gilad Sharon, son of former PM Ariel Sharon said: "There is no justification for the State of Gaza being able to shoot at our towns with impunity. We need to flatten the entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too."
Barack Obama, of course gives his full support to Tel Aviv although calling for a truce.
Israel, while continued its bombing of Gaza, hinted a diplomacy approach to end the war, hiding the actual truth about its main intention to wipe Palestine off the world map.
And the whole world just stood still... watching!
