Oh I see, the IDF has the utmost respect for Palestinian civilian lives. And nobody could have foreseen that the majority of the people killed in Cast Lead would be civilians. Come on now, who's being naive and gullible? Yes Hamas is to blame for fighting from positions surrounded by civilians. And this lead to the deaths of the civilian Palestinians. But (and this is important, most people here seem to want to forget about this) the IDF did the killing. Here's an example for you: A bank robber takes 50 people hostage and starts shooting at passers-bys with a handgun. The police can A: storm the place and B: call in an air-strike that demolishes the bank (not normal police procedure, but I need something a bit of the ordinary here). In my opinion it would be rather odd to say that the bank robber is responsible for the death of all of the hostages when they died because of the police-ordered air-strike.
