I'm not surprised by the world's negative reaction on Israel's war on Gaza. To them, it is only a crisis when Israel shoots back. The anti-Jewish chants by Hamas sympathizers and those at anti-Israel rallies in the past two weeks only solidifies the Zionist position. When the Jews are organized, armed, and protect themselves, it is considered a war crime. When Jews are suppressed and forced into bunkers everyday, it is business as usual.
A friend of mine has suggested that, if feasible and circumstances allow it, the IDF should unilaterally cease fire for an unannounced period, at the end of which, bring in soundtrucks and use helicopters with loudspeakers and broadcast several minutes of the sound of Shofars blowing, to give all of Gaza and the world something they can hear and think about.
If you don't know what a Shofar is, here it is a clip from YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVMiZAqTWQ0
I think it is utterly brilliant.
