    Like it or not, Israel created some of the conditions that created this situation. Goldstone has stated that it was just a fact finding mission and not an indictment. Israel didn't participate. I perused the report. So anyway, here's reality. When the video of Shalit got released, it revealed that Hamas was a much slicker organization than believed heretofore. During all that bombardment, Shalit was evidently protected somehow. When in the past before the present arrangements with the PA were in place, IDF soldiers caught by the Palestinians in certain quarters were at times lynched. So inspite of the of the at least hundreds of civilian casualties, Hamas protected him. That's mud in our eye. Hamas was elected (So was Hitler but anyway). Abbas has been installed. In the report, two things stuck out; the Chicken Coops and some civilians stuck with IDF. Animal rights predates rights for children in history. Did you guys know that? Israel should talk to Hamas before Obama does. Yosemite!
