Three points of dissent, including whether Israel will be able to control the broadcast and where the cameras will be situated, could lead to new tensions over flashpoint site.04:55 07.02.16 | 0 comments
Here's the logic: 1) IJ, Hamas fire rockets, so are legit targets. 2) The "govt" doesn't stop them firing rockets, so the "govt" is also a legit target. 3) The "govt" is supported by the Gazan civilian popln, so these civilians are also a legit target. That's about it, really. So YOUR logic civilians become a legit target by ASSOCIATION (they cheer on the militants) rather than by ACTIONS (they aren't actually militants themselves). Care to point out where that is sanctioned anywhere in the Rules of War? But let's take YOUR argument and run with it: 1) IJ and Hamas are Liberation Movements seeking to create a Palestinian nation by force. 2) The IDF prevents this, so it's a legit target. 3) The GoI directs the IDF, so it's also a legit target. 4) Israeli civilians vote the GoI into power, so Israeli civilians are also legit targets. I'd say (4) is criminal. You'd say (4) is justified. Unless, of course, you are a hypocrite. Which, of course, you are.
