    Hamas is the one that has turneed the entire area into a war zone
    the fact that they choose to fight from civilian dense areas is thier fault, their responsibility

    Re: Israel 'admits' using white phosphorus munitions

    From the January 13, 2009 edition of The Jerusalem Post:

    The international Red Cross said Tuesday that Israel has fired white phosphorus shells in its offensive in the Gaza Strip, but has no evidence to suggest it is being used improperly or illegally.

    The comments came after a human rights organization accused the Jewish state of using the incendiary agent, which ignites when it strikes the skin and burns straight through or until it is cut off from oxygen. It can cause horrific injuries...

    the IDF said Tuesday that it "wishes to reiterate that it uses weapons in compliance with international law, while strictly observing that they be used in accordance with the type of combat and its characteristics."

    Doctors in hospitals in southern Lebanon had said they suspected some of the burns they were seeing were being caused by phosphorus bombs.

    It would be like arguing a civilian was hurt in a battle so the israelis are targeting civilians. It just does not follow given the more likely conclusion that a few people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. We can thank hamas for putting the civilians in such a predicament.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.
