@IDFSpokesperson Good luck, IDF, from a christian living in the USA. Obama may hate the jewish people but I still love them. Happy hunting.

Israeli soldiers of the 155mm artillery cannons unit fire towards the Gaza Strip from their position near Israel’s border with the coastal Palestinian enclave, on July 21, 2014. World efforts to broker a ceasefire in war-torn Gaza gathered pace as Israel pressed a blistering 14-day assault on the enclave, pushing the Palestinian death toll to 558.
