    At the time of the war there were inside reports from Palestinians that Hamas had executed other Palestinians they believed were collaborating with the enemy, although there was no proof. Added to this the amount of children that get shot and killed by friendly fire or as human shields, it is not surprising that the civilian population unfortunately were killed alongside of the terrorists. Perhaps the civilian population should not have voted in a terrorist organisation and perhaps they should be angry at Hamas for hiding within the civilian population when shooting at the other side. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRQa5-gmqys
