A Hasidic Jewish man, from the Breslov sect, holds an Israeli flag as he dances with Israeli troops during a visit to support the soldiers, near the border with the Gaza Strip on Nov. 19. Israel bombed dozens of targets in Gaza on Monday and said that while it was prepared to step up its offensive by sending in troops, it preferred a diplomatic solution that would end Palestinian rocket fire from the enclave.
