Thank you for calling on at the to prevent Gaza protestors from approaching the fence with Israel. I am convinced this is the primary way to save lives.

No. That’s the type of degree that suggests “think twice before your retaliation for the T4 strike” until now all the threats were related to Iranian infrastructure in Syria.

I think that saber rattling diplomacy is preferable to actually going to war. However the question is, will Iran respond to the T4 strike (they’ve repeatedly said they would) and will that now lead to an Israeli strike on Tehran? Dynamics of escalation has a delicate dynamic.

Well, I don't represent anybody except me and my own experience and common sense. 🤷‍♂️. I agree the MAG needs to clarify the state of the conflict at the border fence, and it's ramifications on the use of military force.

I never heard anybody say it's a war zone.

It's all to do with the continuum of force. The tear gas is used in order to disperse the rioters. But you know that, smarty pants.

These are not football fans. I'm sorry, but with your expertise, you need to acknowledge that the situation between Israel & Gaza is one of an extremely violent conflict. This is not crowd control, but border defense. Excusing Gaza leaders is sanctimonious.

I was talking about investigations that have nothing to do with videos. Convictions are based on evidence law, that is sometimes hard to conclude without forensics and witnesses. Videos help.

So you suggest we should let them try? Gaza is a hostile territory, with hostile intentions.Also, according to the official count, 5 of the dead were directly involved in shooting or planting IEDs. On the first Friday, many Hamas provocateurs were among the dead.

No. Most of the MP investigations opened and tried in the Military Court system have nothing to do with videos. Ask

What would happen if thousands of these peaceful protestors tore down the fence and ended up in the surrounding communities? 4000 people live within 3 km of the fence. The soldiers are the last line of defense. The protestors need to keep away from the fence (like the majority)!
