Guess what, Americans? Your "controlled media" LIES to you. Sometimes, it's a lie of omission, as usual in these mideast 'cycles of violence'. Israel
violated the cease-fire. Dramatically, viciously, and characteristically. Way back on November 4th. That
preceded this "cycle". The whole world knows this except for stupid Americans who always proclaim that they don't trust their media, but then go right on believing everything they're told. Then they declare that "they only hate us because they hate freedom". Or "They're just jealous of our 6000-lb SUVs and Big-Screen TVs." Anything to avoid admitting that responsibility for this nightmare is shared.

World Reacts to Violence in Gaza - WSJ.com
1. After ceasefire commenced - Israel refuses to lift Gaza blockade - breaking yet another in a long string of promises (totally ignored by U.S. media, but reported in Israel and the rest of the world).
2. THEN on 4th November, Israel mounts incursion into southern Gaza with customary slaughter (totally ignored by U.S. media)
3. THEN Qassam militants begin retaliation, killing NO ONE (nonetheless widely sensationalized in U.S. media as unprovoked)
4. NOW Israel begins yet another slaughter campaign, killing hundreds (where we are now.. The U.S. demands that Hamas stop the violence. Not a SINGLE Israeli had been killed since the ceasefire, until after the Israeli slaughterfest began.)

No matter what you say or how you spin it, you cannot get around one simple fact: Hamas groups in Palestine are firing rockets into Israel, at innocent people. Any nation would have a right to respond self-defensively to this situation, why, is it that in your opinion, Israel does not? Are they just supposed to sit there and let their children be killed?
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
