The terrorists are trying to win a propaganda war: anything Israel does wrong, they will strike a point. Civilians have human rights: in fighting terrorists, you cannot use their methods, the killing of civilians, and win. You must show more compassion to civilians: let the terrorists look bad when they kill innocent civilians and use human shields. We have been trying to get them condemned for doing this in Lebanon and for striking the twin towers in NY. We are still fighting terrorists; the USA army in Afghanistan looks like it is finally realizing this, and this year it has been more careful not to kill civilians and less were killed this year than less. I think the response you will get is that civilians have human rights, a lesson that has taken too long to be learned.
