Maybe it has something to do with Hamas using ambulances as personnel carriers, hospitals as barracks and schools as fire bases.  How ‘bout we investigate that, too, Fred?

Jeffersonian, Sounds like a real good idea to me.  Brings to mind memories of Korea and Vietnam.  Many children were blown up because our enemies walked them down the road toward US troops with exposives on their bodies.  Our servicemen did not delight in killing these kids but I am afraid they didn’t have much choice.

I saw video of Hamas militants literally grabbing kids and dragging them as human shields.  I also saw them state on Al Jazeer that they were deliberately using civilians as shields.  When the Israelis would call ahead to warn of a strike, the militants would rush civilians to the location of the strike.

So, where is the investigation of that?

It clearly means that the Israeli attacks weren’t as accurate as they thought they were.  Or they were war crimes. 

Israel even kills some of their friends, like Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish. 

Or families.

The point:  show Hamas that Israel can get crazy.
