To Demonize Israel: 298 dead in Ukraine by Russia

Reader comment on item: Why Does Hamas Want War?

Submitted by Ludvik (United States), Jul 18, 2014 at 00:26

Who thinks of measuring Israeli humanity by comparing Israel in Gaza to the Arabs in Syria or Iraq?

Furthermore, one military strike by Russia in the Ukraine just killed 298 civilians:

"Missile downs Malaysia Airlines plane over Ukraine, killing 298; Kiev blames rebels"

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/malaysia-airlines-plane-disappears-over-ukraine-feared-shot-down-by-missile/2014/07/17/0fffe1e6-0dcb-11e4-8341-b8072b1e7348_story.html

It appears that Hamas is miscalculating the sympathy the world will express for the "few" civilian death casualties Israel is inflicting; the hope by Gaza is that Israel will (accidentally) kill more Gaza children in order to get international sympathy.

It is clear that Russia just killed in one second more civilians than Israel killed in ten (10) days.
