Why Israelis kill Arab kids

Palestinian Arab Muslims deliberately target schools and kindergartens. Their strategy is to make life in Israel so unsafe for Jews that they start moving out to the West. Fortunately the Israeli intelligence stops over 95% of the terrorists before they manage to commit murder. Also, fortunately so far the rockets fired by the Arab Muslims at Israeli towns are very primitive and cause relatively few deaths.

When Israeli army is forced to go into the Arab ghettos in Gaza, they are risking their lives in order to save the Arab lives. They could easily bomb the whole building where the terrorists are hiding, but instead, they are fighting street and house to house combat. They could easily bomb the whole city (like Americans the British and all other nations did in the WWII and in other wars), but instead they risk lives of Israeli soldiers to save the "innocent" Arab lives.
I put "innocent" in the quotation marks, because after all, majority of Palestinian Arabs voted for Hamas.

Unfortunately Arabs have the habit of sending their children out to through stones and Molotov cocktail at Israeli soldiers. Unfortunately many Arabs mothers raise their children to become suicide terrorists. Many mothers are proud and brag that their son was a "martyr" or "sahid". Also, unfortunately Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other Arab fighters prefer to attack from areas heavily populated by civilian population. They often have their rocket launchers and even munition storages inside schools and hospitals.

Arab fighters love it when Israel retaliates against their rockets and in the process inadvertently kill civilians. Arabs love when a large number of their civilians, especially children are killed, because this gives them propaganda advantage. Then they can scream in public: "Look how horrible Israel is". On several occasions Muslim Arabs have produced false evidence just to impress the world. For example they filmed a fake shooting death of a young boy "Al Dura" just to smear Israel.

On other occasions Hamas was hiding behind the line of women, calculating that Israelis, are more civilized then the Muslims, and would not fire at women.

The answer to your question why there are more Arab children dead than Israeli, is very simple, it is because Muslim Arabs are prevented from killing millions of Jewish children, women, and men. They kill as many as they can manage. On the other hand, if Israelis really were as bad as Muslims are saying, there would not be a single Muslim left. They certainly have the means to accomplish that.

How fortunate for the Muslims that their opponents are more civilized than themselves!
