Since the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) report on Operation Protective Edge was released this week, many who stand with Israel have spoken up against it. But today, Israel Hayom provides a mouthpiece for actual IDF soldiers who were on the ground, who faced an immoral enemy, and who acted morally as they defended their homeland, the Holy Land:
