    One man killed by two lunatics is vastly different to the systemic massacre of thousands of civilians. Either you can see and understand that, and are being deliberately obtuse, or you are completely moronic.

    Drawing parallels between what was an absolutely tragic murder, and a massacre with many war crimes being committed whilst the world just sits and watches, is idiotic in the extreme.
    Don't care, same old one way street, British people don't seem to have a right to be offended by anything, no difference at all. And i'm not even British. It's not just 1 person either, it has been Islamism that has been going on for years, Pakistani peodpihle gangs up and down the UK, yet everybody was lamblasted for speaking out against it, yet Muslims can riot over cartoons and everybody supports them.

    That might be fine if the source wasn't a hospital ward or the geography department of a local school.

    The principle of proportionality applies. Israel seem to just be operating in a totally irresponsible manner here.
    Under international law, ANY building/institution being used for military purposes, is a legitimate military target.

    Israel is obliged to safeguard civilians and gives multi-level warnings more than any other army in the world.

    Does the British army warn Taliban before hitting their base?

    I wouldn't expect anything less from a British person, you started hated on your own kind many, many years ago.

    But no seriously, all jokes aside and getting back to the topic, The hypocrisy on here is quite amazing that people are supporting these people chanting the name of somebody who attempted to wipe out a whole group of people, and everybody is supporting it That's just my opinion anyway.

    And Hamas aren't irresponsible for hiding in a school that they know will therefore be at risk of attack due to their presence?

    WW3 is quite a stretch... Though it seems that some people on TSR are itching for a war for some reason..

    If I was a Palestinian I would be getting a knife out and stabbing as many of the baby killing ***** as I could.

    Sticks and stones and all that. The jews will never let go of the holocaust because it somehow in their eyes, and in the eyes of many of their supporters, legitimises everything that they are currently doing.

    The Palestinians are paying for the sins of the Germans, and they really are paying for those sins in blood. They have a right to be aggrieved
    Stop conflating the Jewish people and Israel.

    Pro-Palestinian protesters chanting Heil Hitler, i.e. basically praising the murder of Jews, is about as justifiable as people protesting ISIS or Assad calling for the death of all Muslims.

    Well, given the numbers of civillian's killed, Israel doesn't seem to be fulfilling its obligations...

    The principle of distinction and proportionality applies. I find it hard to agree that shelling a school to achieve an unquantified military objective could ever be found to be proportionate. One attck in mid July involved Isreal bombing a cafe. 15 civillians died in an operation Isreal said was "targetting a terrorist."

    I never said that Hamas are without blame. Indeed, anyone trying to pin blame on one side is just silly.

    Hamas has also acted unlawfully by hiding munitions in, and conducting operations from, civilian areas. I find the actions of Hamas to be totally unnaceptable - but that does not excuse Israel's thick headed response.

    They might not have known. If fire is directed at troops, they are obliged to return fire to the source. They may not know the source 3 miles away behind other buildings, is a school.

    We know that in every conflict in build-up areas, these things happen.

    NATO hit hospitals, old peoples homes and even a bordering country when striking Serbia.

    They bombed a few wedding parties in Afghanistan.

    It's simply impossible to avoid civilian casualties. It just cannot be done.

    The school in Jabalya - the UN gave Israel the location 17 times.
    The school in Rafah - the UN gave Israel the location 33 times.

    You'd think that they would have a pretty good idea as to what they were bombing... wouldn't you?

    Also - well done for following the standard Israeli PR spiel to a T.

    Palestinians aren't exactly being put in Gas Chambers, it's a war with attacks on both side, it's like claiming Germans commited Genocide against the UK during WW2, a lot more died in that war, it was millions.
