Operation Cast Lead

 

Gaza is on the verge of becoming the first territory to be intentionally reduced to a state of abject destitution, with the knowledge, acquiescence, and - some would say - encouragement of the international community.

-UNRWA Commissioner-General Karen AbuZayd
January 2009

This is Israel's finest hour. It was a time of trial in which our society showed itself to be ready and willing, with the ability to cope and draw on the enormous strength within it. Israeli society rose impressively to the occasion, and emerges from this trial strengthened and empowered on all fronts.

-Defense Minister Ehud Barak
17 January 2009
