What are your opinions, feelings, fears?
I only ask one thing: if you're going to quote people or post facts please back them up with reputable sources, this means no Wikipedia/CNN/BBC/FOX/Al Jazeera or any clearly biased news source unless the video/picture/news-item has been independently verified.
Edit: Here's a little background: Since the 2009 Cast Lead Israeli incursion into Gaza there has been intermittent rocket fire from a terrorist group known as Hamas (as well as other smaller terror org's which operate in the Gaza Strip but which Hamas claims they can - for the most part - control) Over the past month they've stepped up the attack, from a couple dozen mortars and rockets being fired each month into Southern Israel to 100+ (Source, I tried to provide official Israeli figures but Anonymous has seen fit to take down any Israeli website they can in a show of solidarity with Hamas) this became an issue for the over a million people living their as it severely interfered with their lives and caused a LOT of property damage. Finally on the 14th after a series of small skirmishes that saw casualties on both sides Israel officially launched Operation Pillar of Defense (in a nod to the cloud of glory and pillar of fire that surrounded and protected the Israelites as they left Egypt -- my conjecture) with a tweet. This basically meant a bunch of airstrikes on military targets, regardless of surrounding infrastructure, the trouble is that Hamas holes up in mostly residential places, hospitals, libraries and other places with dense populations. Since then Hamas has fired over 800 (that's more than all the rockets fired last year) rockets/mortars and the IAF has targeted over 1000 Hamas positions. there's a lot more but you can find the rest for yourself.
The most interesting moment came when the IDF live blogged the assassination of a senior Hamas official with a video of the airstrike, it's pretty cool if you ignore the fact that someone (even if he's a terrible person) is being killed.
