Clown, your criticism of the attacks that kill civilians is shared by most everyone. But the challenge facing Israel, as this article so perfectly reflects, is that Hamas intentionally uses civilian facilities and civilians in general as shields against counterattacks by Israel.
Could it possible be because Hamas has no military infrastructures? I'm not sure how you expect them retaliate. again, you seem to be part of Andrea's "they should lay down and die" mentality.
So what is Israel suppose to do? Nothing? Let the attacks continue? Best I can tell Israel is genuinely trying to identify actual Hamas terrorist locations.
If murdering 200 people is identifying hamas then I agree with you. Seems like Israel always claims they "know" who the perps were. Instead of blowing up a neighborhood, why not go in with force and capture the perpetrators? Arresting the perpetrators, and not killing an entire block in order to get 1 person might be a better tactic.
Then, they go a huge step futrher and drop leaflets over the area prior to an attack warning civilians to clear out. (Can you imagine any other nation on earth doing that? I can't.)
DO you know how utterly aggravating and antagonizing that must feel?
To have your oppressor nation drop pamphlets telling you to get the f out cause they will carpet bomb you if you don't.
(Can you think of another time in history where it has been okay for one nation to keep part of their population confined to a prison? I can't)
In response Hamas looks for ever more clever and devious ways of insuring that any retaliatory strikes by Israel will hurt Palestinian civilians.
Its war there. Of course they will retaliate. Just because we are "allies" with Israel, we look the other way and pretend its okay that Palestine is getting murdered.
Really, if you are honest and think about it, what Hamas is doing is evil.
Evil is subjective counselor. My rebuttal to you is "what the IDF is doing is evil."
Which again is why when I criticize Israel it is for their uncalled for provocations against the Palestinians, namely the expansion of settlements. Which as I said above is nothing more than a big '---- you' to everyone.

Yes, agreed. And America will again turn a blind eye, as they have done since I can first remember.
