Some articles about Operation Protective Edge and the current situation in Israel

It is currently around midday in New York on July 10th and I thought it might be worth putting together a few articles about events in Israel which I have found interesting– I do not necessarily agree or disagree with the content, but I felt they were worth sharing.  This is by no means an extensive list, but it offers a variety of insights and opinions.
There is an introduction to each article so that you can read what you find interesting.
