I don't believe that Israel indiscriminately bombs civilians in Gaza. I know that the IDF has very strict rules of engagement and I have been assured that they are strictly observed. I can't tell you what happens in each instance or what numbers are correct. One instance I can tell you about is the Jenin "massacre" where a report of thousands killed and slaughtered was made and believed and printed by all the media until eventually it was discovered and proved that the figures were much lower, not thousands of Palestinians but 51 mostly militants. 23 Israeli troops were killed there too, attempting to go from house to house, doing what they are doing in Lebanon, finding the rockets that were targeting Israelis. Don't think that the figures don't worry us though. We would dearly love to have a peaceful solution.
