World double standard

Reader comment on item: The Aftermath of Attack in Gaza

Submitted by Al (United States), Jul 25, 2002 at 00:45

I see an incredible double standard today. It's ok for terrorist groups like Hamas to intentionally target women and children with nail studded bombs ripping bodies apart, yet when Israel targets an evil terrorist it's a war crime? I'm sorry for the innocent dead, but let's keep in mind that week after week Hamas has killed hundreds of civilians and the world looks the other way. You never hear Hamas apologize for killing whether inside Israel proper or out, instead they praise murder. The anti-Israeli bias is so obvious that Israel should stop apologizing and worry more about saving itself instead of the prejudiced opinion.
