Civilian casualties and culpability therefore 

This photo, which I found on some Free Republic post, is allegedly of Hamas fighters, well-armored with human shields:

See all those kids around the Hamas fighters? If any of them were hurt or killed by Israeli counterfire, their blood is on the hands of Hamas, not Israel. If you fight without uniforms and use civilians as shielding or camouflage, you are responsible for their deaths, not the uniformed soldiers on the other side who shoot back. As Austin Bay observes, Hezbollah is using all of Lebanon as its shield. Do not become confused on this point, for it is essential to understanding the morality, or lack thereof, in this ugly war.

Don't confuse me with facts. I'll believe what I want to believe and nobody can stop me.

Israel is the neighborhood bully

The terrorists have the advantage of being the bad guys. They don't have to conform to any standards of honor, decency or morality. Whatever happens, the media will spin it in their favor.

This could be just a posed photo.

This is a photo op of the resistance awaiting the helicopters delivering the hated Zionist pigs.

They are going to destroy them and parade their heads on pikes.

Another photo op, and more education for the children.

Sorry bastards.

This picture is worth 1000 words.

Papa Ray... Pallywood?!?!?! Well, I wish you were right but you probably are so-not.

Fundamentalists are poorly educated people, who have no clue of what love and compassion are... Not for their people nor for their own children.

These babies should be playing soccer or something, not standing in a possible line of fire.

I'm sorry, my last comment was for Don Cox.

Papa Ray, what a disgusting way of talking about other human beings. Hopefully it will never be your head or your family's paraded on pikes. How human beings can portray such lack of compassion towards others is impossible to understand from where I stand.

I wish you enough hate so you can learn to appreciate love and compassion.

JewCess, I believe what PapaRay is doing is called sarcasm - he's making his point by using the terrorists' own words and following them to their full conclusion - just thought you might like to know ;)

I never ceases to amaze me that all the people screaming about Israel's hitting civilians who are either willing human shields, or ones whom the terrorists are deliberately using as human shields, are strangely silent about the actual use of these human shields by the terrorists. I'd read on another site where the host said that if the people in Lebanon identified so closely with or felt themselves members of the Hizb'allah, that they should know what it feels like to really be a member of Hizb'allah. I'm not sure I didn't feel that a little harsh, but there was a nugget of wisdom in there as well; after all they were the ones tasked with disarming Hizb'allah (who didn't do so), and they deliberately ignored Israel's advance warnings to leave because of impending attack.

And for those who think I'm being mean, or disgusting, or the like, remember: I'm not the one suggesting that all Lebanese need to be wiped off the face of the Earth. But the Islamists are saying exactly that about us. Given a choice like that, I wouldn't even have to think about human shields, collateral damage, or choosing anyone's children but my own.
