Once again Israel was dragged into war it did not want. Most aspects of the Information about the war have been handled well. The problem is that Israel starts from a very uneven playing field. It is stacked against israel because: 1.It is a democracy; 2. It is a staunch US ally; 3. It is the Jewish state, and like or not antisemites, amongst the ruling elites of Europe have come out of the closet, they are quite abundant; 4. Bodies like the UNHRO and others are full of gross humann rights violators, from the muslim republics, and others like Venezuela, Bolivia, etc. that have formed a union against Israel, no matter what Israel does; 5. wars are not pretty events; and 6. Hard to discredit terrorists in the minds of liberal left wing cultural extremists, we all have them, including Israel; many of them make a living in the press.

PR campaigns are not a good name for providing the truth, during a war, to the best of Isreal's ability on a timely, assertive and well documented manner. Precision of event descriptions need to be always qualified. Lies of the terrorists must be exposed by visual, if possible, examples. Briefings should be provided at least once per day, with more details/proofs.

The prelude to the war could have been better handled, wrt the causes to the war; essentially the bombardment by rockets, on almost a daily basis, and its indiscriminate targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure for well over 3+ years by Hamas terrorists. The total number of casualties, in Israel, including all those treated for trauma, children, older resiidents, etc and details of the total numbers of rockets fired at Israel and a listing by type of infrastructure and material damage provided. Essentially the reason as to why Israel could no longer continue ignoring the terrorist aggression. Israel had to embark on a defensive war.... All this info should be provided to UN/EU/each embassy, each press outlet etc.

I fully support Israel against: all terrorists; all those sponsor states organizations; and individuals, including the self haters, that have supported the terrorists.

My best to all defending Israel, and may G_d guide and protect them always; and may he damn all those that have taken arms against Israel and its people.
