Response to KimonoGirl (Reply #114)

115. They bear the blame due to shielding, correct? When the IDF targets Hamas....

 

...and civilians happen to be killed, that's not all on Israel, is it? Hamas is responsible in a large way for that, are they not?

Just making sure we agree.

======

That you reserve the same judgment for Israel as you do Hamas is ridiculous. What Israel does isn't comparable to what Hamas does.

1. Hamas tries to maximize civilian casualties (to Palestinians) for PR, demonization purposes - especially children. I never see your ilk condemning Hamas' efforts at child sacrifice or calling on Hamas to stop committing those war crimes.

2. Israel tries to minimize civilian casualties and their record WRT civilians vs. combatants killed in war reflects that. Their 1:1 ratio is far better than that of NATO, the USA, and UK.

======

I really don't wish innocent Palestinians any ill intent. I'm proud of Israel's attempts to minimize civilian casualties while defending their own civilians from rocket attacks.

As to collective punishment, that's what you and yours are for when you demand that Israel not attack Hamas for firing thousands of rockets into Israel. Better (for you) that millions of Israelis are collectively punished (terrorized) and hiding in bomb shelters than Israel responding to those rocket attacks.
