I live in Israel of course I know people who have killed innocent. But they never intended to and have never been the same since. This is what the regular person in this country has to deal with fighting terrorists in Urban areas with human shields protecting Hamas/Fatah.<quoted text>
any missile strike is going to impact you if you are even 500yds from impact. from what i have seen, Gaza is not very large, and it is almost completely enclosed.
i just know i hate to be confined. i sympathize with those under the heel.
I can't understand why anyone could believe that Israelis as a policy intentionally kill civilians. In Jenin 12 years ago 13 soldiers were killed because Israel sent troops in. They could have just bombed a few streets. Additionally each time there are major casualties the world forces Israel to stop fighting. So logically and they know this, all Hizb or Hamas have to do is create a situation where even a booby trap will cause mass civilian casualties and Israel will have to stop its missions. This happened in Gaza and Lebanon in the past.
Watch Jenin Jenin a total libel against Israel. Than watch Road to Jenin. This sums up the total distortion of the reality in the conflict. If you are old enough you may remember that the UN, MSM, world leaders all condemned Israel for massacring hundreds in Jenin. When the truth came out as in most cases the majority of the dead were fighters and the casualties were only a fraction of what was claimed by the world. Nothing has changed and this is when dozens of suicide bombers were blowing themselves up throughout civilian areas. Where were the world then? They were funding the Palestinians arming and training them while forcing Israel to give in to all their demands.
Pierre Rehov has made numerous documentaries showing Israel and anti-Jihad side of the global conflict against freedom.
I don't know if you have ever been in battle. Try being in battle where they don't wear uniforms are from the age of 12, surround themselves with civilians, bobby trap the homes, hospitals... Mistakes happen. I can't imagine that the US and allies intended to massacre 100,000 people in Iraq and beyond. Fact is that their ratios are sickening compared to Israels and they were fighting on the other side of the world with a much more powerful military. We are under attack on a daily basis. I have an Iron dome next to my home otherwise there would have been hundreds if not thousands of civilian casualties here. This is not even getting into the fact that their whole society incites hatred towards Jews and the West.
When i moved here I was very peaceful and left-wing on this subject. After nearly being blown up twice in suicide bombings I began investigating the conflict. Otherwise i would likely live in a Western country with no connection to this one. The more I learned the more I realized what i continuously post here when I am able to.
I have no interest in any innocent death, I have an issue with soldiers unnecessary treatment of Palestinians this is my main issue here and I still support a two state solution if it is possible. I would give up my own paychecks for the Palestinians to improve their lives if they were just willing to live beside us. I am not wealthy at all and have worked for NGO's and for free for much of my life
Gaza while nowhere near the most densely populated place in the world is populated. There is plenty of open land where the civilians in various areas could have moved to during the battle. Another thing the MSM lied about continuously. Firstly Hamas didn't allow them, they even killed those who protested them, secondly the UNWRA is run by Hamas.
War is terrible but Hamas and the world have given Israel no choice. Just as ISIS, and AL-Qaida must be destroyed so must Hamas. Even UK internally has been acting against the Muslim Brotherhood the Hamas father org.
