    So why err on the side of criticizing Israel rather than granting them some faith and benefit of the doubt?

    Where is the red Cross's public whining that Hamas prevented wounded from being transferred to Egypt or, at least, condemning Hamas for deliberately attacking civilians and putting civilians at risk?

    Sorry, but, like the UN, condemnations from the ICR are meaningless.

    If you hate Israel, why would you cut them slack?

    Oh quit posing.

    You simply cannot tolerate that anyone else might actually hold Hamas and Iran responsible for using ambulances as troop carriers and otherwise deliberately putting civlians at risk.

    You assume that their criticism of Hamas and defense of Israel against absurd accusations dsiplays a resistance to criticizing Israel at all.

    Nonsense.

    Respond to actual arguments.

    Maybe if Israel painting white crosses on their cluster bombs, the Palestinians and liberals wouldn't complain so much.

    On this issue I would rather hold out until all of the facts of the case become clear before I make any claims of wrongdoing. There may have been solid tactical reasons for the blockades. Until I know the full story, I'm going to err on the side of caution.

    There's a world of difference between being willing to criticize Israel and blaming them for everything, so don't even try to pull that crap.

    Yeah, it's all their fault. Israel couldn't possibly be to blame for anything.

    Bull****. Given your other comments you're not willing to grant Israel the benefit of the doubt because you consider Israel actualy defending herself to be the equivalent of Hamas launching unguided rockets into Israeli neighborhoods.
