MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) published a message to IDF soldiers participating in operation “Pillar of Cloud” on his facebook page: “Our Brothers! Beloved soldiers and commanders – take care! Don’t care about Goldstone!  It is possible that within hours you will enter Gaza to crush the head of the monster.  Please, we are waiting to hug you back home, don’t pay attention to Goldstone.  There are no innocents in Gaza, don’t let any diplomats trying to look good in the eyes of the World risk your lives.  At the slightest risk to your lives, destroy”.
