Many have died and the calculus of war is a terrible thing indeed. Israel has spent millions of dollars on a Code Red system to alert it people and countless millions more on building the shelters necessary to protect its people. If not for the Iron Dome air defense system built by Rafael with significant American investment some 600 rockets, mostly the upgraded M75’s would have hit populated areas in Ashkelon, Beersheva, Dimona, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and beyond and inflicted casualties that would have been more proportionate for you. In Gaza, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Army of Islam and others fire all their weapons at the civilian population of Israel and spent millions of dollars building the offensive tunnels from Gaza into Israel to threaten and kill the civilian population of the Negev. The other tunnels they built under Gaza protect their warriors and do not provide shelter to their own civilian population. I am a Jew, (like many) who mourns every death. But I will not do it blindly.
