#3 After 3000+ years of dealing with these people, I would think Jews would understand the concept of Hudna. Granted the term arose with Mo, but it merely enshrined the pre-existing cultural imperative of treachery.

#4 On Friday Hamas acknowledged that one of its operatives had been killed during fighting this week.

The Izz Ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’s military wing, said Ahmed Abdel al-A’al was one its members. A statement from the group did not clarify whether he was taking part in fighting when he died. According to the military wing, al-A’al, 23, and two of his teenage brothers were killed in a "Zionist bombardment" on Wednesday.

Oh NOES! 66% Innocent Goatherders killed™! What will we tell Herb? Apologizing in advance...I denounce myself.

#5 In the world press, the headline would have read "Israel violates ceasefire by firing back at Hamas after ro and kets fired at Israel."

#7 Talking about me again when I'm not around. In the words of Sally Field: "You like me! You really really like me!"

But since I've been summoned, I have to question if people even know the difference between Hamas fighters and innocent Afghan civilians who work in agriculture and have no connection whatsoever to terrorism?

#11  I have to question if people even know the difference

When a Hellfire races toward an group of sunni sasquatches at mach 1, they are most likely good targets, terrorists who must be destroyed wherever sighted. When a GBU released on information from Afghan local intelligence hits noncombatants unwittingly, that's on the faulty intelligence and Afghan callousness with their own peoples' lives. That's your difference.

The IDF are surgical, they don't use local intelligence or sloppy operators to 'set up' their kills. Even if they didn't the world would be better off if every paleostinian motherf↻cker was dead.

Everybody else here feels for 'innocents'. Partly why everybody here supported a pull-out from Afghanistan and Syria. Sure, we can be a dark bunch of cynical bastards and toss around the occasional severed hand at this barbecue. But that doesn't mean everybody here condones killing people because they're 'the other'.

If you ask a racist bigot like me though, every muslim has a connection to terrorism whether he wants it or not.

#19 Jesus Christ, Rantburg.

Commas matter. When addressing someone, put a comma between the comment and the name of the person addressed.

Muslim terrorists are fond of surrounding themselves with civilians whenever they’re not pretending to be civilians themselves — this is not a specifically Afghan behaviour, and is well-known by those who’ve been paying attention to the War on Terror for the past several generations. The Geneva Conventions specifically blame combatants who embed themselves in the civilian population for any injury to the civilians that results when the other side has to go through the civilians to get to them.

There is a cartoon from some years ago which, frustratingly, I cannot find, showing an IDF soldier standing protectively in front of a woman holding a baby, all facing an Arab jihadi hiding behind an Arab woman holding her baby. That is the essence of our discussion: whose fault is it that the Arab woman and her baby were harmed when the shooting started, but the Israeli woman and hers were not?
