    when did Israel purposefully kill civilians who were not used as human shields by murderous terrorists. the responsible party is the terrorist. Israel has a right to defend itself like every other nation does. don't put missiles in Mosques or ammunition in residential areas or hold terrorist meetings in schools etc. etc. the islamo-fascists are basically barbarians who want collateral damage of their own civilians to get a headline. otherwise they just stage it themselves. Israel is not perfect but it applies the rules of war which are accepted by all civilized countries. we have less collateral damage than the US or Brits had in Iraq and Afghanistan.. Not to mention the Russians in Chechnya. Or the French in Africa. The civilized world is facing an evil which has no respect for any human life and it is called islamic fundamentalism. through it a citizen in London cuts off the head of a fellow citizen in the middle of the street and videotapes it or two sick brothers in Boston blow up a little girl and dozens of others at a marathon celebration. sick sick sick. So do not preach to us. The source of 98% of the murder (including almost all of the internecine murder in the middle east) is perpetrated by these barbarians. if the civilized world does not wake up from its stupor of political correctness and multiculturalism, a lot more innocent people will die at the hands of this despicable theology.

    from the article: What about those who murdered innocent Palestinians?
