Tommy, the use of military force in Gaza did show the ugly truth about any modern war fought today. However, to state that Israel caused a holocaust or genocide is totally and thoroughly inappropriate and off the mark entirely. The use of such language to describe the death of collateral damage (civilians caught up in the fight to extricate terrorists who were cowardly using them as shields (like your IRA did as well) is misplaced to say the least. No genocide or even massacre has ever taken place during the past 60 years against the Palestinians. That's the fallacy of pro-Palestinian propaganda that you poor Europeans have bought into by anti-Semitic Left wingers and organizations like Amnesty International or Human Rights Watch. Not to say Israel is perfect. But as one British Colonel rightly testified, no other defense force in the world has taken such strategic and tactical care to limit military actions so as to prevent loss of civilian life. Your knowledge is lacking.
