    O.k, rockets are inaccurate and Hamas says it doesn't want to hurt and kill civilians (apparently a change of policy from suicide bombings). So, what does Hamas do? Well it sends the rockets "in the direction" of civilians, knowing, apparently, that the rockets are inaccurate. So, even if one accepts Meshal's proposterous, double talk, explanation, one concludes that Hamas is recklessley indifferent to the risks posed by the rockets on civilians. In most legal systems, there is no difference between being recklessely indifferent to the loss of life and intentionally eliminating it. This is very different than Israel's stance of self defence. Let's face it. Hamas seeks to terrorize Israelies and Israeli life and the only way it can do that, other than adventurous attacks which fail much more often than succeed, is to fire rockets into civilian areas with all the consequences of doing so.
