    Faces of Israel After 8 Days Battle with Hamas

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jerusalemite wanted to display many aspects of the Gaza conflict; not only fighting and grief. The people of Israel are strong, and these photos capture the 'faces of resilience,' 'disbelief,' 'gratitude,' and 'resignation.'
    - Stephanie, CNN iReport producer

    Look closely at the faces of Israelis from the south who endured eight days of Operation Pillar of Defense against Hamas.

    Are they the faces of hatred? Of fear?

    No: They're faces of resilience.

    Faces of disbelief that neighbors across the border could fire indiscriminately at schools, hospitals and apartment buildings.

    Faces of gratitude to the IDF and Home Command who protected them from worse damage.

    Faces of resignation to the fate of the Jews, even in our own land.
