    " What the article doesn`t make clear (but hints at in the last paragraph) is that the bomb didn`t explode. Hence it was made safe & removed. So bomb fragments were not found all over the building and there was not an explosion consistant with an aircraft bomb. Would you really know what sort of bomb it was if it had exploded?" If the bomb didn't explode, and "finding"it wasn't a hoax, what happened to the other half? If the bomb didn't explode, it couldn't have caused most of the mill's interior damage, and was hence not a war crime. BTW--I am a Navy veteran and have seen the effects of bomb blasts plenty of times. If even half the bomb had exploded, there would have been shrapnel all over the place, and the fact that there wasn't means that a bomb blast didn't happen. British Col. Kemp warned that Hamas was adept at staging public relations incidents-red meat to throw to the "true believer"anti-Zionists, of whom many are right here.
