Give Israel Your United Support
23 March '11
Over the last few days the circle of violence in Gaza and Southern Israel escalated. This morning Beer Sheva was attacked with two Grad rockets causing injuries and panic while damaging a number of buildings including a synagogue.

Beer Sheva, home to 186,000 people, is about 40 kilometres from Gaza, much further than the Israeli cities regularly targeted by Palestinian militants. This is the 2nd attack of this kind since operation Cast Lead 2 years ago.
In the course of IDF efforts to thwart the attacks on Israel, several Palestinians were killed in Gaza yesterday. The reason they were killed is Hamas' intentional use of residential areas as rocket launching pads.
Why does Hamas get away with using civilians as Human Shields? Using civilians as means to achieve military goals is considered a war crime – where are the Human Rights Organizations? Contact Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International NOW and demand they condemn Hamas for using civilians as human shields.
All of us in Giyus.org hope for peace but as long as Hamas is in control of Gaza Israel has no choice but to protect its citizens from rocket attacks.
