Oh Well

I thought this story off the wire, was representative of this entire SAD misadventure:
Israel kills militant's family in Gaza tank fire

GAZA (Reuters) - An Israeli tank shelling the home of a Hamas militant killed his wife and five children on Friday in the central Gaza Strip, medical officials said.

The officials said Israel had apparently targeted the home of a Hamas militant near al-Bureij refugee camp. He was not there at the time, they said.

Maybe next time. Try his mother's shack, might be holed up there, worth a try.

Below is the latest Liberal press release on the Gaza conflict:

Because nothing stops people from hating you and trying to kill you like wiping out their family.

Brilliant.

I'll just go back to being accused of being antisemitic because I think this stuff is not just a bad idea, but a war crime on par with others people in Israel should be familiar.

Mike, I agree with you. The war crimes by IDF are piling up. Killing women and children? If that is not criminal than what is?

According to B'Tselem...

"So far, over one thousand Palestinians have been killed, among them at least 300 children and ninety-five women; at least 4,800 Palestinians have been injured, more than 400 of them seriously."
- B'Tselem

Besides the horrific death toll, in watching that video you link to, the amount of injured Palestinians becomes extremely worrisome.

At least even in Israel, criticism of the assault on Gaza is tolerated in the mainstream Israeli media. More than we can say for the reality in North America.

Meanwhile the war crimes committed by an out of control apartheid state that refuses to acknowledge any wrongdoing whatsoever continue.
