So what about the death tolls in Israel when Hamas lobs hundreds of missiles at Israel and Israel does nothing?

And remember Hamas is a terrorist group. Like Al-Qaeda.

The way the "news" is reporting this war is disgusting.

High-school kids could do a better job of hiding the anti-Irael bias!

Morsi has stated that Egypt is not our ally but that we are a "friend". They don't wish to condemn those who are attacking our ally and friend, then maybe they won't mind us stripping them of every last dollar in financial aid. Perhaps it's time that Egypt decide who they wish to ally themselves with and when they condemn one of this country's ally's from defending it's self as a terrorist organization is firing rockets at innocent civilians, who are our ally, then they are no friend of ours... and should be treated accordingly and starting with all financial assistance being revoked.

It's unacceptable to threaten or attack on of our allies and those responsible should be treated accordingly/their actions should be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

"(Breitbart)- Hamas has once again apparently been caught faking an image of a dead Palestinian child--this time using a child likely killed by its own rocket fire and claiming that an Israeli attack was responsible. CNN's Sara Sidner ran a full report on the child's death, strongly implying that an Israeli bomb had been responsible.

The dead child was paraded before the cameras during the visit of Egyptian prime minister Hisham Kandil, who kissed the dead child in the presence of Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh. But even the New York Times was suspicious.

Bloggers such as Elder of Ziyon quickly pieced together the evidence of Hamas fakery:

The IDF did not launch any airstrikes in Gaza while Egyptian PM Kandil was in Gaza...

If it was an Israeli missile, you can be sure that it would have been shown to the media! Furthermore, PCHR, which is keeping track of everyone killed in Gaza (and which admits that most of the dead have been "militants,") did not list Mahmoud Sadallah or Aiman Aby Wardah in their list of victims of Israeli airstrikes, although they even include one person who died of a heart attack.

Put this together with the fact that Hamas and other terror groups were firing rockets throughout Friday morning while the IDF did not, plus the fact that over 100 rockets have fallen short in Gaza (both using past performance and IDF statistics as proof), and the fact that the shrapnel in the video matches almost exactly the shrapnel damage we have seen from rocket fire into Israel, and it is very clear: this child was killed by Gaza rocket fire, not by Israel.

Hamas has a well-established pattern of faking civilian deaths in Gaza, even as it seeks civilian deaths in Israel (and fakes that, too, pretending it is firing at military targets). Last week, Breitbart News caught Hamas using a month-old photo of a dead Syrian boy and claiming he had been killed by Israel--a double irony, since the Assad regime that killed the boy hosted Hamas for years before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war.

The international community has reinforced Hamas’s pattern of fakery by applying a double standard to Palestinian civilians killed by Israel and Palestinian civilians killed by Hamas. When Israeli artillery inadvertently killed civilians in Beit Hanoun in 2006, the world sprang into action with accusations of “war crime”; when errant Palestinian rockets have struck civilians in Beit Hanoun, the world has said nothing at all.

Not every civilian death in Gaza is faked, of course. But almost every civilian death can be attributed to Hamas, which deliberately fires rockets from civilian areas and hides its weapons caches in mosques and homes. Since Operation Cast Lead in 2008-9, Hamas has smuggled in more rockets that endanger the local Palestinian populace, and whose only purpose is to target Israeli civilians. Hamas bears the moral burden of this war.

Update: According to the office of Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 60 of the 703 rockets fired by Hamas and other terror groups since the start of the conflict have fallen on Palestinian civilians. The Israel Defense Force says that 99 rockets in total that were fired at Israel have hit Gaza itself in four days of conflict.

Update 2: Several sources now report that the child was, in fact, killed by a Hamas rocket, not Israel. Those sources include the Palestinian Center for Human Rights. Will CNN issue a correction to its earlier false report?"

Israel is targeting the Hamas terrorists that launch missiles against Israel from civilian high rise buildings and using children women and the liberal media reporters as their human shield. It is not surprising that liberal media reporters are being injured when trying to protect with their body the Jihadist terrorists that they love. Israel attack on the Hamas media in Gaza is bad news for the NY Times, AP, NBC, CNN and Reuters reporters that were working shoulder to shoulder with the Jihadist terrorists to blame Israel for everything about the all out Jihad war of the Hamas. Why would any rootless liberal Democrat Jewish reporter of the NY Times, CNN, Reuters and AP hate Israel and the Jewish people as much as the Jihadist Mozlem Brother terrorists at time of all out Jihad war that seek killing 7 million Jews in cities including Jerusalem and Tel Aviv? Why would the liberal Democrat Jewish reporters of the NY Times, CNN, AP and Reuters be happy for the destruction of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv by the savage suicide bomber terrorists? Why would the self loathing liberal Democrat Jewish reporters of the NY Times, AP, CNN and Reuters be happy when innocent Jewish children and women die by Iranian made missile that was smuggled by Mozlem Brother Morsi and was launched to tell Aviv or Jerusalem according to the 7th century culture of death?
