1. I support Israel and am bitterly disappointed in them. The Oxford dictionary defines Genocide as:" The deliberate killing of a very large number (1000 and counting not enough for you?),from a particular ethnic group or NATION." I believe Israel is guilty of this.
I really don't care if you support Israel. I have met many supporters of Israel I wouldn't want to associate with.
No, 1000 is not a "very large number" and the killing (of the civilians) were not deliberate either.
Did you refer to Hamas killing hundreds of people in Gaza as a genocide, too?
2.There were no Hamas in the UNWRA compound when 40 women and children were killed.This has been verified.
The IDF say there were. Hamas say there weren't. Who verified this? Apart from Hamas-approved journalists, Hamas-sympathisers among the UN staff (everyone else fled when Hamas took over), and the IDF nobody was there.
Even some of the teachers, paid by the UN, were Hamas militants.
3. Israel has blocked vital aid to people who need food, medicines, fuel etc. (One example: An Iranian vessel carrying 1000 tons of medical supplies and food was turned away from the Gaza coast by the Israelis. It has been verified that there were no arms on the vessel.
Again, verified by whom?
Anyway, if aid was so important, we should ask Hamas to stop firing and let some aid in. It's not up to the Israelis.
4. Here's an example of blatant lying: " Israel says it is not targeting Gaza civilians." How do you fire a shell from a huge gun and pinpoint Hamas warriors only. That's like saying only selected areas of Hiroshima were targetted in 1945.
Israel is not using "huge guns".
In fact Israel has specific weapons designed not to kill. (I believe the example of a rocket that doesn't explode and is targeted at an empty point on a roof to scare away civilians on the roof was given earlier.)
5.This war has been planned so badly to teach Hamas a lesson and stop their rocket launches. At what price? Like the Lebanon war two years ago, the Israelis have no idea how to tackle a terrorist organisation without killing innocent civilians.
Yet Hizbullah stopped firing at Israel and even now believe that the propaganda value of claiming resposibility doesn't outway the disadvantage of being blamed for attacks by Israel.
The Lebanese police even took action against terrorists shooting rockets from Lebanon this week.
It is IMPOSSIBLE to tackle a terrorist organisation without killing innocent civilians. Terrorists target civilians and use them as human shields. Both are war crimes. The reason they are war crimes is because the result is dead civilians.
6. 300 children have died, many with bullet wounds ---don't the Israelis learn how to aim straight?
The Israelis aim straight. But Hamas terrorists are using children as human shields. The IDF have videos that show this. Hamas has also boobytrapped schools and is blowing them up. How the heck do you even know which child was killed by the IDF and which was killed by Hamas?
