    It doesn't say, it merely says 'civilians'

    What siege are you talking about? Israel has and still is supplying Palestinians with electricity, fuels, food and medical supplies. As I've mentioned in my post, Israel constantly provides Palestinians in need with medical assistance, in Israeli hospitals and with Israeli ambulances. Seems you are a little uninformed.

    While I don't think your numbers are correct, I want to explain: Hamas brought this about. They had their choice, and they have been warned before. This is not a case of a merciless aggressor randomly slaying civilians.

    Perhaps, or perhaps Israel needs to show further restraint.

    It has used this 'tactic' before many times in not only Gaza but Lebanon.
    You do not manage to kill Militants by attacking civilian areas, they should know civilians will be the ones who die

    Please let me highlight one fact from your post.
    If a Muslim Arabic person get injured in israel area, he gets the same treatment as a Israeli person which includes Ambulance, Hospital and Medical supply

    There is no other option remaining. Israel has warned Hamas to stop for weeks. Even Egypt has warned Hamas to stop. Hamas does not listen to anything except raw power.

    Either their memory isn't very good or they don't respond to raw power either.

    They just don't respond to anything.

    Where my problem lies is the figures that seem to be emerging is highly favored on one side. No guesses as to which side that is.

    Im sorry that your country is going through this and i would not expect no Government to take it, but when IRA bombings happened in UK. UK Government did not respond by air raiding and bombing civilian populations. More restraint should have been shown because sadly, Israel is not coming off as the victim here.
    The Muslims seem to operate under the premise that only retaliatory violence in direct proportion to the original offense is acceptable.

    Westerners see retaliation as a way of stopping any further offenses.

    And in regards to the IRA here's Mark Steyn...

    That, by the way, is the one point of similarity between the jihad and conventional terrorist movements like the IRA or ETA. Terror groups persist because of a lack of confidence on the part of their targets: The IRA, for example, calculated correctly that the British had the capability to smash them totally but not the will. So they knew that while they could never win militarily, they also could never be defeated. The Islamists have figured similarly. The only difference is that most terrorist wars are highly localized. We now have the first truly global terrorist insurgency because the Islamists view the whole world the way the IRA view the bogs of Fermanagh: They want it, and they've calculated that our entire civilization lacks the will to see them off.

    How then do you kill militants when they are in civilian areas wearing civilian cloths? Maybe Hamas should come out in the open and take the mask off of thier face and dress in military uniforms. But they will not because they are cowards who hide behind children.
