    "It is deeply painfully regrettable when any `innocent human being ` is killed. I am all for Israel taking every possible action (My sense is that it does take much action) to prevent the injury or death of civilians" Shalom Freedman, You are absolutely Israel does not take enough action to prevent injury or death of civilians and this is very evident when one looks at the vital statistics for the last five years and the Human rights Reports. Of the nearly 4,000 Palestinians killed by the Israeli Army, over 1,700 of the victims were civilians with no ties to terror. Indeed, 708 victims mere children who were on their way to school, chasing a ball or wondered into harms ways. In addition, the army injured 30,000 other Palestinians with their reckless use of gun fire, indiscriminate shelling and use of rubber bullets. Is it any wonder then that the Director of Human Right watch, Mr. Kenneth Roth noted the following in his 2004 report: "Israel has violated international law by failing to distinguish between civilians and combatants and it did not live up to its responsibilities as an occupying power to protect civilians under its control". Thank you, Dutch
