Προσωπικά στο σπίτι μας είχαμε πολύ πιο σοβαρή ζημιά από λάθος ενός εργολάβου ….
Εδώ βλέπουμε Ισραηλινούς να κάθοντα χαλαρά σε ένα λόφο και να ζητωκραυγάζουν όταν γίνονται βομβαρδισμοί στην Γάζα
και εδώ βλέπουμε ένα σχετικό βίντεο από τον πολεμοτουρισμό που λαμβάνει χώρα στα σύνορα του Ισραήλ με την Γάζα και ισραηλινοί να λένε ότι νοιώθουν και λίγο ….φασίστες….

Last Wednesday night, as he stood on a hilltop outside the Israeli town of Sderot and watched the bombardment of Gaza on the plain below, a Danish newspaper reporter snapped an iPhone photo of about a dozen locals who cheered on their military from plastic chairs while eating popcorn.
Allan Sorensen, a veteran Middle East correspondent for Denmark’s Kristeligt Dagblad, then uploaded the image to Twitter with a sardonic caption that described the macabre scene as “Sderot cinema.”
The image of the Israeli spectators was taken after 9 p.m. local time on Wednesday, the reporter said, about the same time that what was intended to be a “precision strike” from Israel’s military killed at least eight of their Palestinian neighbors, seated in similar plastic chairs at a beachside cafe in Gaza, waiting to watch the World Cup semifinal between Argentina and the Netherlands.
As his image reverberated around the social network, where it was shared more than 10,000 times, the reporter was surprised by the response. It was, he said in a telephone interview from Israel, “nothing new.” Similar scenes, of Israeli spectators gathered on the high ground above Gaza to view the destruction below, were documented in a Times of London article and a video report from Denmark’s TV2 during Operation Cast Lead in 2009.
Explaining that he has also previously witnessed Palestinians cheering news of bombings that killed Israelis, Mr. Sorensen said that in a war, “this is what happens.” Civilians and fighters on both sides, he said, “go through a process of dehumanizing the enemy.”
Despite the willingness of some residents to stand in the open watching the war unfold, Sderot is well within range of rockets launched by Islamist militants in Gaza and has been hit in recent days.
When he was a candidate for the American presidency in 2008, then-Senator Barack Obama visited the town and saluted “the brave citizens” of Sderot while standing in front of a collection of spent rockets that had been fired at them from Gaza. He was also presented with an “I Love Sderot” T-shirt that channeled the dark humor of the residents, with the image of a heart on its front pierced by a rocket.
While some partisans of Israel on Twitter accused the Danish reporter of fabrication, the same scene, captured in photographs by several other journalists in recent days, was also witnessed by Mr. Sorensen’s colleague Nikolaj Krak, who wrote: “The hill has been transformed into something that most closely resembles the front row of a reality war theater. It offers a direct view of the densely populated Gaza Strip. People have dragged camping chairs and sofas to the top of the hill. Several sit with crackling bags of popcorn, while others smoke hookahs and talk cheerfully.”
When the bombs find their targets, Mr. Krak reported, “cheers break out on the hill, followed by solid applause.”
Mr. Sorensen, who stressed that he has “a complete understanding of what the people of Sderot have been going through for 14 years,” attributed the particularly vitriolic response to his Twitter report to the climate in Israel since three young religious students were kidnapped and murdered in the occupied West Bank last month. The journalist called the “extreme incitement to violence from very right-wing Israeli groups unprecedented” in the many years he has been reporting from the region.
An Israeli blogger, David Sheen, reported that a far-right rally in Jerusalem on Monday was marked by calls to kill Arabs and send Jews opposed to the bombardment to Gaza.

The picture was posted by a Danish journalist on Wednesday as the bombing campaign began and has sparked a fierce backlash online
This is the incendiary picture of Israelis eating popcorn and cheering as they watch the bombardment of Gaza which has sparked outrage on Twitter.
The photograph was tweeted Danish journalist Allan Sørensen, the Middle East Correspondent for a Danish newspaper.
Along with the picture he wrote: “Sderot cinema: Israelis bringing chairs 2 hilltop in sderot 2 watch latest from Gaza. Clapping when blasts are heard.”
The image, which has been retweeted more than 8,000 times, has led to heated debate on Twitter.
The photo was taken on Wednesday in Sderot, around a mile away from the Gaza strip, a town which often finds itself under fire from rockets from Gaza.
The day before, Israeli security forces began strikes in Gaza to retaliate against rockets from Hamas.
One user wrote: “Morality of a people so skewed that murder is a public spectacle. An astonishing thing to see in this day/age.»
Another said: “That is just inhumane, abominable and disgusting. Shame on you, Israel.”
Meanwhile one Twitter user described it as «the most gruesome image I’ve seen the last few days.»
Yesterday, Danish daily the Kristeligt Dagblad published a follow-up article online in English describing the scene on the hill.
It said: «The hill has been transformed into something that most closely resembles the front row of a reality war theatre.
«People have dragged camping chairs and sofas to the top of the hill. Several sit with crackling bags of popcorn, while others smoke hookahs and talk cheerfully.»
Eli Chone, a 22-year-old American living in Israel told the paper: «We are here to see Israel destroy Hamas.»
Officials in Gaza say that almost 100 Palestinians have been killed in air strikes over the last four days.
Israeli authorities say the raids are in retaliation to rocket attacks by Hamas fighters.
The attacks come after the abduction and murder of three Jewish teenagers last month and the suspected revenge killing of a Palestinian youngster saw violent clashes breakout between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers.
