    Yonatan says ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Too bad innocent bystanders were killed, but in war everything is both immoral and fair. Yes, immoral and fair. Once you accept the idea that war is immoral by its very nature, then any act of war and any kind of weapon is perfectly legitimate. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now. In the 1940's, Germany was at war with a large number of countries. Germany carried out a holocaust against the Jews. From your post, you seem to say that any activity during war is OK. Do you also mean that Germany's actions against the Jews in teh 1940's were OK? Obviously not. It was an atrocity. You must see that and will probably agree that it was. So. Are you Bigoted? A Racist? A Hypocrite? Or just plain Stupid? Civilians are meant to be kept out of harms way and not to be considered Collateral Damage if you can possible help it. Israel has a lot to answer for in it's handling of the Occupation of Palestine.
