    War is brutal. War is ugly. War results in the death of civilians. War also results in the death of one's own. We have far too many examples of how "friendly fire' (IE: IDF soldiers from one unit firing accidentally upon another) has resulted in multitudes of dead in Israeli wars of the past. Mistakes happen. This does not mean premeditated murder of civilians. We also know that Israel entered a quagmire scenario in Gaza where Hammas intentionally brought their battles to civilian centers. This is the very opposite of what a moral army is supposed to do - IE: to protect your civilians. We sent our soldiers into the hell of Gaza to protect OUR citizens, from Hammas. Can anyone see the difference? Hammas fires missiles and mortar AT Israeli civilian centers for 6 long years before Israel moves in TO PROTECT HER CITIZENS. Hamas then uses their own Gazan civilians as a military tool to hide behind as they attack Israel. Yet Amira Hass remains totally silent about the horrific way in which Hamas conducts its warfare. When are you going to break your own silence Amira?

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
