First of all, the death of any innocent people, men, women or children is in no uncertain terms, a tragedy. With that said: "If harming civilians is a measure of terror, then Israel is a terror state." The spin is, "harming civillians" is not a measure of terror. Terror is defined as an act purposely perpetrated against innocent civillians to instill fear, or in other words, the targeting of civillians. Israel is not targeting civillians, the Palestinians on the other hand are. The simple fact that the Palestinians can no longer do that with suicide bombs does not matter. The bottom line is they purposely target civillians and therefore are the terrorists. They launch Kassam rockets and our fire is a response to that. The palestinian leadership is responsible for attacks that eminate out of their territory, and the response it results in. Therefore the PA (Hamas) is responsible for the death of the innocent girl and injury of her family.
