The whole world is talking about Jenin so I'll do the same. The Palestinians claims of a massacre are pure propaganda. According to those claims as many as 500 Palestinians were killed - till now the number of bodies to have been found are close to the Israeli estimate of about 50 killed. Its not the first, and sadly not the last, time that the Palestinians are lying.
Yes I've seen the pictures from Jenin, but pictures don't tell the whole story. The fact is that a fierce battle was held in Jenin. Hundreds of Palestinians terrorists and gunmen fortified them self in the refugee camp and booby trapped almost every thing (their own houses and infrastructure. The Israeli army (I.D.F) tried to avoid harming innocent civilians but the Palestinians terrorists used them as a live shelter. The I.D.F didn't choose the easy way: bomb the place from the air, as the Americans and the British did in Afghanistan. Instead of doing that the army sent infantry to move from house to house and try to avoid from civilians to get hurt. The ruined buildings seen on TV were demolished only after a warning has been given to those inside to surrender.
The funny thing is that the Israeli army is trying to avoid Palestinians civilians to get hurt and at the same time all that the Palestinians r trying to do is to kill Israeli civilians. So when you see the bodies in Jenin know that most of them are terrorists who killed innocent Israeli civilians
I recommend on reading :"ha'aretz" (Israeli newspaper) editorial.

Hello. This is my first blog and hopefully it will be a good one. I’m a 23 years old Israeli guy. My blog will be dedicated to dealing with the terrible situation in Israel. I am sometimes amazed by the bias news coverage of the situation over here by the world media, bias in favor of the Palestinians of course. There for I decided to try to give a different view to things, an Israeli point of view.
I don’t intend to be a news site. I’ll write my personal opinions and feelings over here, opinions and feelings that I believe are popular in Israel these days.
