    Ahmed Jos, there have been thousands of rockets shot into Israel over the last few years. Nice try though.

    Ps. That boy was recruited as a fighter (human shield actually) by the Hamas animals and got killed in crossfire. True story.

    If it was a true story, rather than just a story, you would have posted a link
    Another post of yours where you justify the killing of children

    That cartoon is very cynical. Bibi was already winning by double digits. And Olmert lost after Cast Lead in 2006.

    Uri Avnery has seen this movie many times...

    "Conflagrations along the Gaza Strip don’t start. They are just a continuous chain of events, each claimed to be a [or 'in'] 'retaliation' for the previous one. Action is followed by reaction, which is followed by retaliation, which is followed by …

    "This particular event 'started' with the firing from Gaza of an anti-tank weapon at a partially armored jeep on the Israeli side of the border fence. It was described as retaliation for the killing of a boy in an air attack some days earlier. But probably the timing of the action was accidental – the opportunity just presented itself..."

    "However, the Palestinians had in fact walked into a trap prepared with great care. Whether the order was given by Hamas or one of the smaller more extreme organizations – it was not a clever thing to do."

    We need to find a way to tax war into extinction.
    Maybe a 150% war tax on those who directly profit from any war after the first innocent dies?

    As you all know, I cut and paste lots of stuff here. Unfortunately, this was not one of them! I'm referring to the one that showed the whole incident was a hoax with another video of the supposedly "dead" boy walking away with the man who held him in the first one.

    Sometime you people can be such dupes.

    [There was also another where another "wounded" Palestinian, took off the bandage.

    "A 2009 article in the UK Telegraph entitled 'Bullets in the brain, shrapnel in the spine: the terrible injuries suffered by children of Gaza,' investigated a situation in which doctors at a hospital near Gaza were 'almost overwhelmed by the number of Palestinian children needing treatment for bullet wounds to their heads.'

    "The article began: 'On just one day last week staff at the El-Arish hospital in Sinai were called to perform sophisticated CAT brain scans on a nine-year-old, two 10-year-olds and a 14-year-old ? each of whom had a bullet still lodged in their brain, after coming under fire during the Israeli ground assault on Gaza.'

    "Asked about the nature of these shootings, a physician replied:

    “I can’t precisely decide whether these children are being shot at as a target, but in some cases the bullet comes from the front of the head and goes towards the back, so I think the gun has been directly pointed at the child."

    "Israeli soldiers in a group called 'Breaking the Silence' have provided chilling testimonies about Israeli military culture; the titles alone tell a great deal. Following are a few..."
