    usually ignorant comments on here... If the Palenstinians are so super then why do Egypt keep the border closed ? fellow muslims and all that ? the answer is simple. Hamas are terrorists. there would be no "war" if the terrorists stopped firing rockets. its fairly easy to understand, unless you are an uncivilised cave dweller.
    1. Because outside of Israel, Egypt is in receipt of the largest donation of foreign aid money from the USA.
    2. The border that you refer to is Sinai, it is not under Egypt's full control as it is a buffer zone between Israel and Gaza that is monitored by an international force of observers. Since the fall of Mubarak most of the area is controlled by salafists groups. Egypt with its restricted access for troops in the area has recently agreed with Israel to deploy more troops to deal with it
    3. The Egyptians are the primary interlocutor trying to broker broker a ceasefire
    By the way. I am not ignorant I'm just one of many, many Israelis that has served in the Military and doesn't see the worst of everything and is fully aware if the history of this country. Furthermore, I can assure that I am civilised. As you can see I can read and write in English and other languages. And I certainly don't live an a cave.
    firing rockets at israeli kids is evil and uncivilised and to support those that do is also evil and uncivilised. imo.
    Are you f....g kidding me. The killing of kids is happening every week by the IDF in the West Bank, the rockets that are launched from Gaza, as wrong as they are, have not killed kids, whereas the Israel forces have thus far in one week killed over 70 children. Including four from the same family that were on the beach. So to quote your own worlds, anyone that supports that action is uncivilised. Thus I await your uncivilised response."

HUNDREDS of people have taken to the streets of Southampton today in protest over the conflict in Gaza.

Chants of "Free Palestine" can be heard across the city centre as people make their voices heard over the ongoing crisis.

Hundreds of people have lost their lives in the conflict between Israel and Palestinians.

Daily Echo:

The Southampton demo marched from the Guildhall before ending at the BBC South headquarters.

Today’s protest saw significantly more protestors taking part in the march than a similar one on Tuesday.

Abdullah Catell, who organised the demo, said: "We are praying all the time for these people.

"We need to unite everyone, from all different political parties and faiths.

"This is not a lone protest - this is the start of a movement."
