Mike,

I agree with you on the point that children should be kept out of harms way. This is the job of the parents, if they are not radical muslims or regular Palistinians that think that bombing and killing Israelis or innocent people, especially Jewish children and mothers, is their way to eternal paradise.

While Hamas targets children, using GoogleEarth to pinpoint kindergartens and schools for maximum damage and bloodshed, Israel has gone out of her way to protect kids. Hamas has put up shields of children and use regular houses for storage of rockets and other weapons.

In all wars, I believe some children got caught in the crossfire, but I have never known anything such as putting a suicide belt on your child and wishing his death with others in the name of religion. This is a new idea and is only from Muslims. In fact, even with all the suicide bombers in Israel, they were 100% Muslim.

There are Christians, Druze, and other religions in the area, but only Muslims call for suicide as a way to heaven.

The Muslims need to be shown, so that not everyone has to be bothered when only a percentage of the population are the perpetrators of "death is best" in the name of religion.
