    So what about EU, AU and many other countries who condemned both sides? Do they hate Israel too?

    Israel and Hamas both broke the ceasefire numerous times. Quit the bitching
    Hamas broke the ceasefire; Israel retaliated. Retaiation is not the same thing.

    During the 6 month ceasefire.
    Hamas broke it but likewise Israel also broke the conditions laid out.

    "Egypt will continue its contacts to prepare an atmosphere conducive to restoring the period of calm and achieving reconciliation between the Palestinian groups," it added.

    Jordan condemns Israeli strike on Gaza - People's Daily Online

    Jordan urged Israel to immediately stop its military operations and put an end to the collective punishment policy against Palestinian civilians, said Jordanian State Minister for Media Affairs and Communications Nasser Judeh.

    "Jordan will exert every possible effort along with influential powers in the region and beyond to put an end to the Israeli military operations," he said.

    Countries with peace treaties with Israel condemning it ... you was saying?
    Thank you for the links. They still fall short.
    I did notice one line from the 2nd link thats says a lot.

    "The truce expired on December 19 and Hamas said it would not commit to renewing the cease-fire."

Of course, you could try telling the families of these people that were killed that "they were just after Hamas" but I don't think they'd really care.
    Now you're just splitting hairs. The attacks were on legitimate targets known to be used by Hamas terrorisrts. The attacks are NOT on civilians. That is nonsensical bull****.

    Isreal IS NOT attacking civilians.

    "I support the bombing of civilians."

    That makes you a hypocrite.
    This IS an ad hominon attack on me.

    By most measure, the Hamas leadership is clearly dysfunctional.
    Honestley, i don't think Israelis have the right to complain about the rockets still hitting them when more high tech weapons are being dropped on the Palestinians at this stage.

    Israel as a democratic country, i expect it to take a moral highground every time Hamas does something wrong. All it has achieved is radicalising the popularity and potentially risking its Egypt ties as Egypt is getting a-ttacked over this recent conflict.

    Bombing a Mosque full of civilians = attacking civilians. Unless bombing isn't attacking?

    I don't care what you want to call it; it still stands.

    How so? Because it doesn't deliver what you want to hear? None of Israel's allies save US is standing by them. That says something no?

    What was posted were not facts.

    He was making exuses for the side he believes to be correct.

    You can call his excuses "facts" if you wish but that would make you as incorrect as he is.
