On the 23rd day of the IDF’s Operation Protective Edge in Gaza, while the government is seeking a viable cease-fire, the average Israeli is saying just the opposite: give ’em hell.

“The public is decisively opposed to a cease-fire,” Sari Steinberg of the Panels polling firm told Israel’s Channel 2 News.

“There’s been a shift since the beginning of the operation,” according to Steinberg.

“Just prior to the operation, 65 percent opposed a cease-fire, and now it’s at 78 percent – that’s a major jump.”

Twenty-five percent thought that neither side was coming out ahead.
