"The issue is not whether the shelling is justified." - Dave It isn't a question of "Justified" Dave. I don't think the IDF would deliberately destroy a family picnic. Why would the IDF want to blow up a family enjoying a sea-side picnic? Trying to justify it as a legitimate act only serves the interest of those who hate Israel and would want it to be seen as something Israel would do as a matter of policy or for laughs. There is NO evidence that it was a deliberate act by the IDF or any individual in the IDF. Why should you wish to excuse it as such?
