If you believe that Israelis don’t care about the human misery in Gaza then take a look at the israelity.com website article ‘Victims donating to victims’.

Even though the reporter states that the majority of the population supported its government in its attempt to end the terrorising of its citizens in the South, nevertheless they are not immune to the suffering of their neighbours.
