Now.. it's overkill.....

Reader comment on item: Israel's War on Hamas: A Dozen Thoughts
in response to reader comment: Israel Allows Itself to take the blame, why ?

Israel has the right to defend herself ABSOLUTELY!

It has ben a few says since the initial rocket attacks and now it is looking like overkill on israel's part. The news and stories we see from CNN to Al Jazzera to the AP are now showing children bunched in morgue freezers. Not a good look for Israel in the International Community at all. I'm sure you see why this is, for it looks just as bad when they are Israeli children. Israel has to take the blame, for there are palestinian bodies pililng up by the hundreds in Gaza.

Yes. Hamas expliots this and it makes sense for them to do so. I dont agree with Hamas Doctrine in any way, but wishing Israel would concentrate on retailating towards Hamas itself, and not allow themselves to be suckered into a situation where Hamas can even use these images for their benefit in the international press.

They are making the same mistake the Bush administration has in Iraq. Creating more Hamas volunteers to extend this conflict into a longer and longer time period.....
