The interviewer in the video doesn’t seem to understand that civilians killed on attacks on Hamas – who is launching rockets at Israel from among civilians – is the fault of Hamas. The idea that combatants can launch assaults from among civilians and expect that they will be shielded from retaliation is absurd and only guarantees that civilians will be a permanent part of warfare.
Who believes that interviewer was as tough with the Russians regarding their invasion of Georgia or reduction of Grozny to rubble?
It looks like it is about to become more precision. Israel is massing troops on the border.
The Israeli military pressed ahead with its aggressive offensive against Palestinian rocket operations Sunday, intercepting at least two rockets fired toward Tel Aviv with the country’s new `Iron Dome’ missile defense system.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said two rockets were fired Sunday. It was impossible to immediately reconcile the reports.
Thousands of Israeli troops are massed near the Gaza border, meanwhile, awaiting an order to invade should Israeli leaders decide to widen the operation.
“The Israeli military is prepared to significantly expand the operation,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared at the start of the weekly Cabinet meeting.
Perhaps Israel should declare that it considers the Gaza Strip part of Egypt and hold that country responsible.
