Reader comment on item: The Aftermath of Attack in Gaza

Submitted by Dr. A. S. Walfish (United States), Jul 24, 2002 at 09:25

When Nato and the U.S. kill innocents in Kosovo, Bosnia and Afghanistan, it is called "collateral damage" Why is it heavy-handed when the Israelis assasinate a hunted man who took refuge in a densely populated area, putting all at risk? Aren't those who harbor terrorists equally guilty? Like the Israelis, I too regret the loss of innocent lives. Does Hamas?
