Israeli strike kills 9 members of Gaza family

Israel says it was targeting a Hamas militant as part of its campaign to stop the group from firing rockets at its cities. The dead were women and children.

GAZA CITY An Israeli airstrike Sunday killed at least nine members of the same family all women and children in the deadliest single attack and worst civilian tragedy since the fighting in the Gaza Strip began last week.

. . .

The Israeli missile strike was so strong it destroyed the Dalu family's three-story building, blowing out windows blocks away and sending a charred mattress flying into the street.

For hours panicked neighbors and rescue workers clung to hope of finding survivors. While a bulldozer pulled apart pieces of the collapsed walls, volunteers in orange vests scrambled over the wreckage and searched for signs of life.

In a grim, heart-wrenching scene that played out over 90 minutes, the bodies of four children were pulled out one after another.

1. Is it enough yet?

When will there be enough innocent blood of women and children spilled to make the leaders of these two groups come together like adults and find a damn solution?

3. It is never enough for deranged people.

 

Murder of innocents do not factor into their beliefs.

5. I've been waiting most of my life for the Israeli/Palistinian hatred of each other

to end. Suffice it to say, I don't think peace is attainable. Sometimes I wish the world would tune the area out and have the winner notify us when there's a 'winner'. sorry, but.....

6. Impose a solution!

Isn't 60 year of this horror enough?
It's obvious that a solution brokered between the two sides is not possible.
It's also obvious that everyone on this planet is less safe for the lack of one.
---------------------------------
The UN created this mess, with the USA and Britain taking leading roles.
Maybe same goes for a solution.
----------------------------------
The USA once brought an end to a war by dropping atomic bombs on cities filled with people. If that was an act of moral necessity was justified (maybe), why can't a settlement along the lines of what has been proposed over and over: 1948 boundaries, viable states, be crafted and imposed?
-----------------------------------
And I do mean imposed. What other choice is there?
