Gaza Can't Take Much More of This

Israel always trots out it's trusty excuse for severe military action - "They use civilians as human shields" to dehumanize the Palestinian enemy. But this from Amnesty International: “The Israeli army is well-aware that Palestinian gunmen usually leave the area after having fired and that any reprisal attack against these homes will in most cases cause harm to civilians -- not gunmen.” It goes on to say that Israeli tactics include using civilian homes, except the Israeli occupying force stays in that location, forcing the inhabitants to remain on ground floor while snipers shoot their neighbors from their upstairs windows.

Far more damning, the Israelis have killed 50 or so people by rounding them up into a structure and bombing that structure. Survivor says Israel bombed Gaza house full of civilians
