HRW: Hamas rockets from Gaza violated laws of ... JPost - Defense
Thanks, Toastman. It's too bad Hamas is wreaking havoc by firing rockets from and to densely populated areas in both sides where peope's lives are put at risk. It's terrible to kill an adult for nothing, but it's horrible when children are involved.
Impossible. This must be another Zionist plot to burn pregnant women and children.
In addition to them saying that harming civilians was their aim intentionally, the article says:
That's sad on so many levels.
Did you read the article, TheOldSchool? What do you think of it?
Yup the evidence just keeps mounting against Hamas. Yet the message is not being sent out properly or there is some kind of disconnect between the media and reality. I mean the general assembly of the UN wants to grant these people the same rights as other civilized nations without chastising them for their unforgivable tactics.
I put a picture up here a while back that showed a rocket launch site 1 block away from a playground and a mosque. It's despicable.
My previous post was meant to be shocking and chuckleworthy lol
When did israel start to care about International Law?

freedombecki, TheOldSchool; et al,
This serves no useful purpose in each side demonizing the other. Each side is not ready for peace, so each side starts a fight and accuses the other.
Everyone with half a brain knows that to draw and shoot a gun at another - has in it an implied intent to kill. Everyone knows this is an assault with a deadly weapon. Rockets are no different; just a different caliber. Palestinians know they were wrong.
The Palestinians know that they are not placing a good faith effort on the table.
The Israelis know they are wrong in the administration of the Occupied Territories. They are not ready to speak - seriously - on issues and options that will bring peace.
Both sides deserve a lot of blame. I worry however that the solution would lead to the dissolution of Israel and then the entire Middle East would be lost to the west and the power of the dominant totalitarian and theocratic governments there would be consolidated.
Saudi Arabia is probably the most westernized and civilized of the countries in the Middle East but there are absolutely horrifying things that happen there all the time. Look at Egypt who just overthrew western influence and now has a radical madman heading their government.
Lose Israel and we lose that whole part of the world.
Israel is the size of a fucking postage stamp. Jews and Israelis would be much safer somewhere else... and so would we (9/11).
