Support for you!

Dear Mr Netanyahu,
I have just listened to your speech and I can tell you that I AM a decent person with morals and I strongly condemn what you are doing to Gaza and the Palestinians. Seventy years ago the Jewish people were persecuted by the Nazi Germans and this is exactly what you are doing to the Palestinians. Hamas may be considered by some to be terrorists but they were elected by the people and you have no right to bombard them with shells, while hiding under your Iron Dome. You have no morals and no honour. You are as bad as the Nazi's. If my family and I were blockaded in my home by my neighbours I would seek to build tunnels and retaliate whenever I could against my oppressors, so I don't blame the Palestinians for doing just that, I blame you for forcing them into such a position that they feel they have no choice in order for their people to survive. All the children in Gaza that you are injuring or making orphans will only grow to resent your country and the fighting will never stop unless you stop it now and talk to end the situation!
The world is outraged at the Russians for seizing Crimea and aiding the Pro-Russian separatists, but this is exactly what you are doing to Gaza. I have no doubt that when you have finished flattening the area, you will move in and start building on it for the Israeli people and this is unjust to the point of being criminal. I hope god will judge you harshly for your actions because my friends and I certainly do. When your judgement day comes it will be too late to stop it, you must stop it now!!
If Israel and Palestine continue to practice "an eye for an Eye" both races, creeds and religions will end up blind and bitter -- you already are because you cannot see what you are doing to yourselves and the world!! STOP fighting and start talking for the sake of all people everywhere and in case you are wondering , I am not Israeli or Palestinian, nor am I Jewish or Muslim. I am one person among many thousands who cares for life everywhere and wants to STOP history repeating itself. My words cannot do it alone but your words and actions can.
Yours sincerely
G A Chapman

Condemn what Israel is doing in Gaza? Are you kidding? They are only trying to protect what is theirs to protect! Hamas IS A TERRORIST Organization !!! They not only have dug tunnels, they have put explosives under Israeli schools, so the children are killed first! They think nothing of killing or having Israeli children killed as well as the Palestinian people killed! It is only collateral damage to have the Palestinian killed. A big score if an Israeli is killed. How horrible is that? Hamas has broken the seize fire, far to many times to be trusted! Israel will be judged by the same God that gave the land to Israel! God made a covenant with with Abraham and Isaac, (Abraham's son). This covenant is forever! God said I will bless those who Bless Israel, and curse those who curse Israel! God Bless Israel and the Prime Minister Ben Netanyahu!
