    BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces have killed nearly 2,300 Palestinians and injured 7,700 in Gaza over the last five years, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said Thursday.

    Some 27 percent of the fatalities in Gaza were women and children, the UN agency said in a report highlighting the effects of Israel's blockade.

    The land, sea and air blockade of Gaza entered its sixth year on Thursday.

    Under the blockade, exports have dropped to less than 3 percent of 2006 levels.

    In just these findings of the UN addressed in the above 4 paragraphs, we see multiple war crimes of Israel identified, an illegal Blockade of Gaza that is collective punishment and a war crime under the Fourth Geneva Convention, substantial unlawful killings of civilians that include women and children (over one fourth of those killed fall in this category), substantial unlawful attacks on a civilian population in Gaza that are collective punishment and have injured 7700 in Gaza and slaughtered nearly 2300 in Gaza.

    It only takes a couple of small concessions for the blockade to be lifted.

    I particularly enjoyed the account of the tunnel rats being killed in these un-official reports.

    And, ever heard of human shields?

    Only 2000? Number seems low compared to the amount of terrorist animals running amok in Gaza. I'm going to complain about this.

    Hossfly,

    Israel is committing daily war crimes by imposing that illegal Blockade on Gaza that deprives 1.7 million human beings in Gaza, over half of whom are children, of their basic human needs every single day. There is no right to commit war crimes, like impose this illegal Blockafde on a civilian population a state is carrying out an Occupation with respect to. There is no right to impose conditions on a civilian population and in exchange refrain from engaging in war crimes against that civilian population.

    Why do you choose to be an apologist for war criminals? I find it hard to imagine any conduct lower in life to choose to engage in.

    Your so called tunnel rats are often children who enter the tunnels to try to bring needed food and other needs to their families and people. Children do it because of their small size, and they are often bombed and killed, as they sacrifice their lives for others.

    Why do you find joy in children being bombed and killed?

    Human shields, yes, I keep reading the human rights groups find Israel uses Palestinians unlawfully as human shields.

    Why do you defend these war crimes?

    Spare me the hoss turd size tears. I have sympathy for the plight of the Palestinian people as do most of the Jews, Zionists and other civilized people. Our beef is with the leaders and lackeys of the evil, animalistic Islamists. No other explanations or reasoning will suffice. You need to re-evaluate and repent, sinner.

    All associated with retaliatory strikes or defense of troops or civilians. All legal and acceptable. Want to blame someone? Blame Hamas for causing the deaths. They not Israel initiated the attacks and Israel is just better at targeting what they shoot at.

    When Hamas places a rocket site on top of a housing apartment the deaths resulting in a retaliatory strike falls squarely on Hamas and is totally legit under the rules of war.

    When Hamas establishes a command and control center under a hospital or school and that building is destroyed or damaged attacking the site, again Hamas is at fault and it is a legit target.

    When civilians riot and throw rocks at armed troops and those troops fir at them, that is self defense, rocks can and do kill.

    When Israel sets up a no go zone and people violate that zone and refuse to follow instructions and are shot, that too is legit.

    Much to do about nothing. Hamas caused the deaths. Hamas is at fault and Hamas can end the deaths any time they want.

    They have tried, Pals wanted them to stop the occupation, they stopped it and the pals rioted and attacked the Israelis for doing what they asked. Pals ask for autonomy and what did they do with it? Elected a terror group with the STATED goal of the destruction of Israel as their Government.

    Short of all Israelis packing up and leaving or dying nothing Israel does is EVER going to appease Hamas or their ilk. Read their damn charter and tell me how Israel negotiates with a group who states in their group charter they want the absolute destruction of Israel as their main goal?
