but unlike you, i don't close my eyes to reality of what was done in gaza...or the special care the idf took to ensure that its ground assault was not witnessed by the media, even to the extent of forbidding its own soldiers from carrying cell phones and cameras...or afterwards, how it quickly silenced the soldiers who had begun to reveal what they'd witnessed. nor did i miss the news reports afterwards that mentioned its threat of diciplinary action for any others thinking of doing the same. but aside from all that, it doesn't take much thought to realize that the negligable amount of confrontation hamas provided, by the idf's OWN account, doesn't add up to the massive amount of destruction and casualties that took place during the ground assault. and my suggestion to you, is that you take a long hard look at yourself before you call anyone else a "sanctimonious hypocrite".
