I would like to preface the following statement with this: I am not advocating Genocide, nor should my statements be interpreted that way.
That being said…here we go. The unqualified opinion of an American who has never been to the Middle East, nor served in the military.
The argument over whether Israel is targeting children and other civilians, or going out of their way to warn and avoid them is pointless to the extreme. The war between Middle-Eastern Jews and the rest of the population has been going on since biblical times. And it will never end, not until one side is COMPLETELY ERADICATED. There is no peace in this war, except through complete victory by one side or the other. No Ceasefire has ever led to peace. And as far as Palestinian civilians are concerned, the Palestinians define themselves by their desire for the destruction of Israel. To that end, from an Israeli perspective, there are no civilians only future combatants. If you don’t want Israel to shoot at you, stop calling for their destruction, there is a simple causal relationship there. All these kids are going to grow up hating Israel; They are being indoctrinated, and the fact that they are in a constant state of war only makes the Hamas propaganda that much more effective.
Anyone who lives in Gaza has had ample time to relocate someplace safer and more hospitable, say…ANYWHERE ELSE IN ISRAEL, where they can live in peace as citizens. Or go to Egypt. Or..stay right where they are and oh, I don’t know, stop shooting rockets at Israel!
As far as I am concerned, I will not buy into the US/UN Propaganda that Israel is targeting or brutalizing Palestinian civilians because in my mind there ARE NO CIVILIANS left, only non-combatant participants. Carpet bomb the whole area. Treat Gaza like the Allies treated German manufacturing cities in WWII. They want war, you give them war. That is the only way to win. As long as there are people alive who define their existence by the mission to destroy Israel, the fighting will never end.
