Keep Kerry Away; We have Work to Do!

The United States Secretary of State, that loose-lipped John Kerry* is on his way here to push for an immediate ceasefire, which is the last thing Israel needs. The only thing Israel needs now is to totally destroy the network of terrorist tunnels that have been discovered leading from Gaza to Israeli border towns.

The IDF has uncovered over 20 terror tunnels in Gaza since beginning the ground operation last week. These tunnels can be used to infiltrate Israeli territory and carry out attacks on Israel’s civilians.  Stand for Israel
We can't afford to stop destroying the tunnels until the job is complete. They seriously endanger not only the communities that are affected, but the security of the entire State of Israel. The Gazan Arab terrorists have been constructing a very sophisticated network of underground military infrastructure, bunkers, tunnels and storage areas.
*The secretary of state, John Kerry, on Sunday appeared to criticise Israel’s claims about the targeted scope of its attacks on Gaza, as a open microphone caught him talking to an aide ahead of a TV interview.“It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation, it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry, who was appearing on Fox News Sunday as part of a tour of all five main US talkshows, said to an aide on the phone, in a frustrated tone.
Earlier, speaking on CNN, the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, said Israel’s response to rocket attacks from Gaza had been “very measured and trying to be as pinpointed as we can”.
“What choice do we have?” Netanyahu said. “We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better.” (theguardian)
The responsibility of the State of Israel is to protect Israelis, not to protect enemy civilians!

I am not surprised, yet shocked by Kerry and Moon's behavior.. Those who are kind to the cruel will one day be cruel to the kind. I wonder what they would do if missiles were purposely shot into their backyard and they were told to show restraint.
