Quote: But Hamas for eight years rocketed the Israeli civilian population. These actions are war crimes and are well documented. After WAITING for these eight years, Israel embarked on a police action to put an end to this. Your understanding of armed conflicts really is troubling: What you call WAITING includes Operation Rainbow (2004), Operation Days of Penitence (2004), Operation Summer Rains (2006), Operation Autumn Clouds (2006), Operation Hot (Warm) Winter (2008), For Operation Cast Lead you use the term police action while the rockets coming from Gaza are war crimes. Is your understanding that as long as Israel doesn't use nukes against Gazans it can not be called a war and therefore no possibility of war crimes committed by Israel???
