[QUOTE=Vilma;2943810][B]Again, if people were lobbing rockets into the USA, don't you think the USA would respond and attack the source of the rockets, no matter the proximity of launchers to residential areas. [/B]
Considering that 60 of the 350+ people killed were civilians, its obvious Israel is trying to limit the damage and death to civilians. You have no clue, let me know what you would do when your family is under constant rocket fire, I don't think you'd care about the civilians that are in the area the rocket fire is coming from[/QUOTE]
This is not a valid argument at all because you leave out a very important point.....Israel's inhumane treatment of the Palestinians. If I were to occupy another peoples land, build settlements on it, blockade its pots, block the flow of food into the nation and causing major malnoutrition crisis, prevent essential medical supplies from coming in, prevent its people from making a decent living by blocking them on their ways to work, target their elected officials for assasination.....etc..etc......
Then guess what ? I wouldnt be surprised if they fired their pathetic missles and whatever cheap offensive toeard me.
If my family was being fired upon by my neighbors b/c i am occupying their property, harrassing them daily, prevent them from going to work and from having food and supplies entering their household, causing their kids to be malnourished....I wouldnt strike back. I would stop causing so much misery to my neighbors.
BTW how many of the over 1000 seriously injured/maimed were civilians?? Do you count those? You should, since these are the ones who are going to grow up and hate Israel for ruining their lives and likely will be the next generation of suicide bombers. Congratulations Israel.
