If these people want to complain about civilian casualties they should complain to Hamas which targets Israeli civilians and then uses its own civilians as human shields secure in the assurance that biased news sources like the BBC, the left wing idiocracy, and hypocrites like 38 degrees will blame Israel for shooting back in self-defence. Israel uses weapons to protect its people while Islam uses its people to protect weapons. The far worse genocide is in Syria and Iraq and Libya where Muslims massacre other Muslims without a peep of protest from 38 degrees.
Did Israelis blow up the buses and tubes in London, perpetrate the Bradford riots, demand the murder of Rushdie, and hack a British soldier to death on the streets of London - or did radical Muslims do it? Did Israelis try to blow up Glasgow International Airport or was it radical Muslims? Are the Israelis holding hundreds of Christian girls slaves in Nigeria or is radical Islam’s Boko Haram doing it? Where us the protest from 38 degrees when 3.4 million Christians were slaughtered by Muslims in Darfur over a 14 year period? I never heard about their appeals for peace as long as the Muslims were doing the murdering. When someone stands up to radical Islamic murdering however, Muslims are portrayed as the victims. The victims. The blood of those civilians is on the hands of Hamas and those who support them. Hamas is listed as a terror group by the British government, the EU, the USA and even by certain Muslim countries like Egypt. Do Israelis butcher moderate Muslims alive for being moderate or does Hamas? When Israel does to Muslims what Muslims do to each other, then 38 degrees can winge.
Do Israelis force tens of thousands of underage girls to undergo clitorectomy every year, or do countries with Sharia make female genital mutilation culturally compulsory ? Hamas has Sharia law. Do the Israelis force about 1,000 underage British girls into arranged marriages abroad sometimes with relatives and men 50 years their senior or does fundamentalist Islam? Whether 38 degrees are just plain hypocrites or morons who are also hypocrites I do not know. But there are only two possibilities. Please forward my comments to 38 degrees and tell 38 degrees that I said so.
A young IDF soldier's experience in Gaza!
We went into Shuja’iya, to discover and destroy the Hamas’ terrorist tunnels. We discovered there an entire underground city, with multi-shaft, wide tunnels, with Wi-Fi & air-conditioning systems, concrete walls, and stocked to the ceiling with weapons and explosives. Some of the tunnels are so wide, that they can ride back and forwards on Vespa-type scooters. And then came the worst! The Hamas “fighters” started sending towards us 13- and 14-year-old Palestinian children, running at us, wearing explosive-laden suicide-bomber belts!! Those children were death-trapped, and became human bombs, by the community’s adults!! We were trained to fight adult soldiers or any other skilled adults, enabling us to defend our families and countrymen. But this?? We had no other option but, in self-defense, to shoot them at as far a range from us as we could, before the “responsible adult” that sent them used his mobile phone to detonate the belts, and kill us.” One of the injured soldiers ended up by saying, “I do not know if I’ll ever be able to sleep again; the pictures of those poor children, killed by my gun, will probably never leave me!”
Some Concrete Facts About Hamas
Guess how many skyscrapers the terror organization could’ve built instead of tunnels

Israeli troops entering Gaza last week have so far uncovered 18 tunnels used by Hamas to send armed terrorists into Israel and built using an estimated 800,000 tons of concrete.
What else might that much concrete build? Erecting Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, required 110,000 tons of concrete. Hamas, then, could’ve treated itself to seven such monstrosities and still had a few tens of thousands of tons to spare. If it wanted to build kindergartens equipped with bomb shelters, like Israel has built for the besieged citizens of Sderot, for example—after all, noted military strategists like Jon Stewart have spent last week proclaiming that Gaza’s citizens had nowhere to hide from Israel’s artillery—Hamas could have used its leftovers to whip up about two that were each as big as Giants Stadium. And that’s just 18 tunnels. Egypt, on its end, recently claimed to have destroyed an additional 1,370. That’s a lot of concrete.
You may find such calculations callous. They certainly pale in comparison to heart-wrenching photos of dead children on the beach. But they matter a whole lot: If you’ve ever read Robert Caro’s The Power Broker, or played Sim City, or just looked out your window and paid attention to your city’s changing skyline, you know that urban leaders are measured not by what they say but what they build. And Hamas, almost exclusively, chose to build tunnels, bunkers, and launching pads for missiles.
Now, from purely military point of view, there is something brilliant about transforming a strip of coastal farmland into a giant concrete aircraft carrier that’s impossible for your enemy to sink. But the idea that Hamas’ tunnels are intended to promote the welfare of Gaza’s 1.8 million civilians, who are forced to live on deck as rockets are fired, is bunk. If the tunnels were truly lifelines for Gazans, as Western apologists occasionally argue, one might expect any reasonably responsible leadership to avoid firing barrages of rockets at civilians inside Israel.
The intention behind Hamas’ tunnels is clear from where the exits are located: inside Israel. The terror organization packed its subterranean networks of tunnels and bunkers with explosives, weapons, and murderers, some disguised as IDF soldiers. Their gallant plan was to send the killers through the tunnels, so they could emerge from the ground in the middle of Israeli kibbutzim and start throwing grenades and shooting indiscriminately, with the goal of killing as many Israelis as possible. That’s not very neighborly.
So, where did Hamas get all that concrete?
Most of it came from you and your government. Hamas got its hands on the supplies it needed to build the tunnels after it pleaded with the international community last year to help redeem Gaza from the throes of a humanitarian crisis, caused by the fact that both Israel and Egypt closed their borders to Gaza, because both countries grew tired of having their soldiers and citizens murdered by terrorists. Needless to say, Israel’s concerns about how the concrete would be used were universally derided in the West as inflicting cruel and needless suffering on the people of Gaza—who, needless to say, didn’t receive any of the concrete for their own use. The priorities of Ismail Haniyeh’s government were crystal clear—to use all resources at their disposal to launch another war with Israel.
And if you are among the tens of thousands who spent last weekend demonstrating in support of Hamas, it may also be useful for you to know that while Gazans languish in in poverty, Hamas’ bosses are living large; Haniyeh, for example, bought 27,000 square feet of beach-side property a few years ago for $4 million, pays for his children to study in Europe, and sends his family members to hospitals inside Israel—all good choices, which he ensures are not available to anyone in Gaza who isn’t a high-level member of his fundamentalist political cult.
What all this adds up to is that Hamas is not seriously interested in governing Gaza, which is why all the honorable attempts at resolving this current round of bloodletting will fall flat. New elections won’t help. Giving Hamas more concrete won’t help either.
We are left with a harsh realization that makes so many of us, good liberal Jews reared on the principle that nothing stands outside the realm of reason, deeply uncomfortable: There’s no negotiating with Hamas. Not because of some lofty and abstract principle—we don’t negotiate with terrorists!—but because Hamas isn’t here to talk or build or heal the wounded people of Gaza. The organization’s raison d’etre is killing people.
Anyone with a genuine commitment to human rights—not to mention sympathy for the Palestinian cause—should join Israel in its efforts to rid the world of such sheer evil and topple Hamas. To leave Hamas in power is not a moderate solution to anything. It is to become complicit in the agenda and the actions of a terrorist organization in inflicting terrible and continuing pain not only on its neighbors but also on its own people.

PRAYER ALERT FOR PALESTINIAN CHILDREN: The mining disasters you never heard about. . . . until now:
Any mining accident in the world is generally front page news, but why hasn’t the media exposed Hamas for its admission that 160 Palestinian children died in the construction of underground terror tunnels?
A report by the Institute of Palestine Studies was published in 2012 in which the terrorist Hamas regime claimed the children were killed while building the network of tunnels to attack Israeli civilians.
Most of the world is concerned only about the civilian death toll of Israel’s “Operation Protective Edge.”
However, the Institute for Palestine Studies published a detailed report on “Gaza’s Tunnel Phenomenon” in the summer of 2012. It reported that tunnel construction in Gaza has resulted in a large number of child deaths.
“At least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials.”
The report said child laborers are “prized for their nimble bodies.”
Not only are Hamas misappropriating much of the humanitarian aid supplied to Gaza—800,000 tons of cement were used to construct the terror tunnels into Israel—they are also directly exploiting and endangering Gaza’s youth in their construction and operation. To read the full report, click here.
INTERCESSORS, PRAY: Jesus said, “Do not hinder the children from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19: 14)
