    Maybe, just maybe, they shouldn't have stored weapons for Hamas and allowed them to shoot missiles from their sites.

    I think every rational person (and many irrational persons) are revolted by the idea of young children dying in a war. Perhaps the Palestinians should stop using them as human shields? Or better yet, just stop sending missiles into Israel.

    Why cry when you know who is storing weapons in the school's.. You already know its possible outcome & who is behind it.. stop them from doing it and these kind of things will never happen.. But I guess logic doesn't count.

    @HoraceGreely So why not send in a swat team? Sure it'd risk the lives of a couple men... but it's also save the lives of innocent civilians. Hamas is cowardly and launches rockets at random targets, I thought Israel was better than that? In training, equipment, morallity and everything.

    Maybe the U.N. shouldn't encourage Hamas to hide weapons. bombs, etc.. in schools, hospitals, playgrounds...next to the TERRORISTS, the UN. Is the next to blame for the deaths of these children. They're pawns for Hamas. Hamas has no respect for human life.

    Got any links or proof to that outrageous statement. Do you really think the U.N. is in bed with the Hamas terrorist? If you do, without proof, then that says about all I need to know about your mindset. Typical Repub extremism, just throw out lies and see if they stick, I am not a big supporter of the far left wing either, but damn, you guys take the cake!

    @Jenjen Really? Most of the employees are Palestinian refugees?! OMG. I will not post a word of any site. Pick & Choose that's what is done by the Leftists. How can anyone justifiably make such claims???

    @Cal what else would you expect? They are being attack by Hamas. Hamas has violated every ceasefire. Once Hamas violated the ceasefire that left Israel no options.

    Israel could do a lot more to avoid civilian casualties when they fight back against Hamas.

    well I guess the HAMAS needs to move their weapons out of schools, churches, and hospitals.
  • #232

    Move them where? Somewhere so the Israeli govt can just come in and bomb all of the possible resistance to full Israeli occupation? Because that makes sense.
  • #372

    Hamas could move their weapons out of those places, but they'd still be right near civilians, because the Gaza Strip is just that densely populated, with little escape because of Israel's occupation and years-old blockade.

    @S-N-A-F-U Indeed. The UN has blood on their hands. They have propped up and support Hamas and their human shields.....it's time for the UN to be kicked off American soil.....

    @S-N-A-F-U Funny how storing rockets gives the Israeli govt the green light to indiscriminately kill a thousand civilians in retaliation.

    @AceLuby

    It is indeed odd,(not funny) how we have a nation (Israel) surrounded by a sea of Muslim's determined not to give them the right to exist because they're Jews -- in a land given to them by God which originally exceeded their current meager real estate holdings that one can look across from the heights.

    War is hell, but not in the extreme that the WWII was fought -- where the entire city of Dresden, Germany went up in a fire-storm that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. And they were innocent by definition compared to what/s happening in the M.E. Unfortunately, the innocent suffer at the hands of their perpetrators. And,'IF' those that reach adulthood become Terrorist they're better off Dead now rather than later!!! IMO, of course......

    Cry all you want to! Casualties of war! They were told " TOLD" to evacuate! This devastation is upon the Palistinians! They support Hamas and will not flee the war zone! They are as guilty as Hamas!
  • #155

    Where do you expect them to evacuate to? They aren't allowed to leave the Gaza Strip which is smaller than LA and harbors nearly 2 million people. Especially when Israel is bombing the exact locations they are telling the palistinian people to evacuate too.
  • #166

    @Gtiallday Gaza is about 140 sq. miles, L.A. is roughly 470.
    Gaza has an estimated population of about 1.8 millio vs L.A.'s 3.8 million.

    Israel tells the residents before they launch counter-attacks, Hamas does not afford the same "courtesy" to Israel. Hamas additionally prevents the civilians from escaping harm's way - as well a puts them *in* harm's way in the first place.
  • #190

    @Gtiallday Isreal is taking out tunnels used to shoot rockets at Israel, not schools and Mosques. Who lives in the tunnels?

    @Myce_Elffe Thanks for verifying my original point...idk what you were getting at. Hamas missiles practically never hit Israel civilians there is literally no comparison in the two. The point I was making is that Palestinians in gaza have nowhere to flee to, they are trapped in a strip that is continuously being bombed, even the areas that Israel told them they would be safe in. I'm not condoning what Hamas is doing whatsoever, just not supporting a military power house that continues to slaughter trapped innocent civilians. Do you honestly think anything good will come out of this genocide? Do you think the Palestinians that had their family, home, neighborhood, electricity, community wiped away is going to be ok with it? You think they won't continue to have animosity toward the country that destroyed their lives? Come on.

    Didn't an Italian reporter come out and say it was actually a Hamas rocket that took out the school? He tweeted about it once he got the hell out of Dodge.

    Who is putting people into concentration camps? Who is killing civilians who have nowhere to go in the concentration camps? Who is breaking international law with their continued occupation of the west bank? And who actually broke the cease fire with air strikes?

    Israel.

    Those are the facts and sound much more 'Hitler' like than anything the UN has done.

    Perhaps when Israel found rocks in the school and turned them over to the UN ... only to have the UN give the rockets back to Hamas.. then to find rockets again.. only to have the UN once again give rockets back to Hamas.. and maybe after being willing to agree to a cease fire only to have Hamas reject the cease fire... again twice.. and after this compassionate grieving man pointed reported, according to this story, in the direction of a professor who was a proponent of terrorist attacks... well maybe after all of that Israel is just a bit tired of it all.

    So Hamas doesn't get to defend itself, but Israel gets to indiscriminately kill civilians who are trapped. No double standard there.

    @AceLubyOkay, answer this. Think about where you and your family live. Now think about air raid sirens going off all hours of the day and night and you only have 6 to 30 seconds to get to a shelter. Now please tell us what you would say to your Congressman the very next day.
    We know the American people. They would say, "Flatten them! Now!"

    Coz Israel is the victim not the perp. I hope they kill more of the terrorists. The first "shots" fired were from Hamas, not Israel. They waited a whole lot longer to act than they should have. They should never have agreed to partition in the first place. We think that Israel will have to retake the Gaza to make certain they have eliminated all threats.
  • #337

    @AceLuby Defend itself vs what? to say you are defending yourself against attack would mean that the other side attacked first. which is not the case.

    Hamas fires off rockets at Israel from right next to schools, shelters and Mosques solely to get Israel to respond and then they cry to the media and the UN when Israel responds, classic Hamas.

    It was the Hamas who retaliated because of Israeli air strikes. But hey, keep supporting the genocide of people. But just enough genocide so people don't get 'too' riled up. Classic Israeli govt.

    If you are angry about it, then call Hamas & tell them they are cowards hiding behind kids. Arabs don't seem to care about a child's life. They purposely hide among the kids during war. How sick is that? Their entire beliefs center around killing people who do not agree with them. It is truly sick how uncaring so many of these Arabs are. They allow terrorists to live among them & actually protect them many times.

    Stupid thoughts for stupid minds. They are stuck in concentration camps because the Israeli govt has put them there.

    @AceLuby They put themselves in camps because they live in a world of hate. No forgiveness to any other people of faith. WIPE ISRAEL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH! That is their humanity for the children. Kill all Israel's children while they hide behind their children in war. They seem to have absolutely no humanity.

    @commonsense51 They put themselves in concentration camps? WTF are you smoking?

    And pray tell, how will they 'wipe Israel off the map' with their weaponry and no trade since they are cut off by Israel? Why is it ok that Israel kills hundreds of Palestinian children in response to Palestinians killing Israel's children when no children have been killed because of attacks?

    And what do you mean by 'war'? This isn't a war any more than shooting fish in a barrel is 'hunting'.

    But hey, keep blaming the fish for 'putting themselves in the barrel' while claiming that if the bottom fish would just come to the top all the others would be fine.

    And let's remember who broke the truce in the first place...

    @AceLuby It only shows you the total radical nature of a people who know they are out gunned, out matched & keep causing the suffering of their people when they refuse to stop initiating the violence. Only a moron would blame those who defend themselves. If there were no terrorists & Arabs who admit they want to wipe Israel off the face of the map, they would live hand & hand with the Jewish people. But no, Arabs want to kill them for nothing more than being Jewish & finally staking out a piece of land they could call Israel.
    Sounds a lot like the Nazi's.

    When you use children as human shields in war, that is what you get. Rather than face a much better equipped and trained force, they cowardly hide behind the skirts of women and children. For shame on them for putting their own people at risk.
    If the Palestinian Authority had any guts, they would back Israel and root out these murderers. We hope that Israel completely destroys Hamas and Hezbollah and any other terrorists it can. That means killing them.

    Hamas are killers, no doubt about it. They kill an Israeli, normally, about once every 2-3 years. They are the worlds' least successful killers it would seem, they are so lousy at it, they hardly manage to kill any Israeli's, except when they are invaded. I wonder if its incompetence, laziness, lack of ambition, or maybe the Israeli's are just too good at keeping them out of israel. The 3 israeli teenagers were not killed by Hamas, which Israel's own investigation has finally acknowledged...an investigation that just happened to kill about 9 palestinians and jail scores of others. The Israelis are like elephants stepping on natives, killing Palestinians is something they just can't seem to avoid doing.

    In all the wars that have ever happened this is the only one where children have died. Now if these people are in favor of Hamas I wish they would just come out and take sides instead of grandstanding on these children I wonder if he he's even thought that kids from Israel have died as well.

    Can't tell if you actually believe your first sentence, or are being sarcastic.

    Children have died in every war, and Hamas is not the first to use children as cannon fodder.

    @cat2009

    The Palestinian kid's pictures are being shown because they are easy to get and carry a lot of emotional impact.

    That's not suggesting any sort of conspiracy, that's just human nature expressed in journalism.
