The headlines this week reeked of déjà vu, reminiscent of previous confrontations and intifadas, as conditions on the ground in Gaza are becoming more and more similar to those that preceded the 2014 war.19:05 05.02.16 | 4 comments
Hamas is putting Palestinians in harms way. They have total disregard for their own people. Their intolerant militant ideology is more important than the welfare of their people. Hamas leaders should be indicted for war crimes, for engaging in military attacks from their population centers and thus putting civilians in danger of predictable and foreseeable counter attacks. They are purposefully attacking a vastly superior force for no other purpose than to incite a military response on de facto civilian areas. As a legal matter, through one's actions to knowingly put other person at risk of foreseeable mortal consequence has to be a crime.
