I echo DECENCY What really struck me as a total outsider is the kind of responses this articale has provoked so far. Instead of just accepting the grief and mourning of the victim`s relatives or the mere wrongfulness of dead children in general, some people seem desperate to justify it be it with the help of comparisons or the question of responsibility. In my opinion, it is simply a matter of dencency to accept and respect the position that dead children are a blatantly wrong thing, no matter what their cultutral background may be. Lacking the ability of doing so is a clear sign of a distorted sense of humanity. Beyond the horror at so many children being killed and maimed, I am repeatedly astonished at the lack of compassion and moral atrophy of Israeli civilians who try to throw up excuses to JUSTIFY the killing of children. And then they claim moral superiority.
