The questions are:
Why is Israel targeting civilian and civil installations in violation of the Geneva conventions?
Why is Israel using chemical weapons on a civilian population in violation of international humanitarian law, causing severe burns to innocent people?
Why is Israel bombing schools and compounds run by the UN where there were no militants or rockets?
Why is Israel intentionally targeting hospitals filled with hundreds of already wounded innocent people?
Why is Israel refusing to allow humanitarian aid to help ease the suffering they inflict on innocent people?
I was watching a clip from Israeli tv the other day while they interviewed a Palestinian doctor from Gaza whos daughters were killed by Israel while he was being interviewed. It was heartbreaking.
These are people just like you and me, with families and children and they're suffering greatly, in part because of our unwavering support of anything Israel does.. and this demonizing has got to fucking stop.
Saying they should make it into a parking lot is no better than the neocon morons who say we should nuke the middle east.
As far as Hamas "crying uncle" .. I suspect it has more to do with the transfer of power that will be taking place in a few days, and Israel wanting to get a bead on where Obama will stand on these issues as he takes office.
Hopefully this is the last time for a long time that Israel will feel like it can do whatever it wants because America will protect it regardless of what it does.
Israel has gone out of it's way to inflict as many casualties as they can, not caring one bit about the fact that the majority of them have been civilian, with around a third of them being children.
They are war criminals and should be prosecuted as such.
