Sitting in your armchairs in the US, a world away from the events in question, you nevertheless pontificate and pass ignorant judgments without any facts. If you actually talk to soldiers--as I have--they will tell you that terrorists in Gaza regularly fled into houses and emerged surrounded by children, and the IDF was ordered to let them go rather than risk harming civilians. They would come into houses through walls, because the doors were booby-trapped, notwithstanding the families cowering inside. Get some facts firsthand--no one will prevent you from talking to people--and then pontificate and pass judgments.
