    Let us, unlike civilised governments, not cry hyena without reflection but quietly extrapolate similar cases. Are there indeed deaths? Indeed that many? All kids and elderly? Actually dead in this incident? How did they die? However poor the imagery, why as central piece a white stretcher with a huge red stain. Mind Hamas’ chief a few days ago already enjoying this “incident” by claiming “victory” whatever happens. Humanitarian aid? Why not working with Israel’s professional humanitarian logistics instead of seeking ego-tripping drama hiding behind elderly, and kids presumed to be at school?
