If anyone thought that ianct (or the rest of them) would simply condemn this brutal murder... guess again.
First we saw realifedad attempt to explain, excuse, rationalize and justify it as "retaliation". pouncer weighed in with "revenge". Now we have ianct's version of why (to quote jprichva's prediction) "they had it coming".
Their entire idea (if we can tarnish that word so) is to not only sweep this wrong under the carpet but also the massive support for it based on other alleged wrongs.
So now ianct conjures the Gaza Beach incident from 2006 (at least a ffew years after the one pouncer falsely claimed happened a few days ago). What ianct and his spam propaganda don't tell you is that said explosion was most likely due to a Hamas mine. It came 8 minutes after Israel fired at terrorists operating a kilometer up the beach.
Before transferring victims to Israel for treatment, Palestinian Arab doctors took the medically unnecessary (and dangerous) step of surgically removing all the schrapnel they could surgically reach. Not to help the patients, but to remove evidence. One piece that was later recovered did not match any Israeli ordnance.
As in every war, there were child casualties in Gaza. None, however, had their sloats slit while they slept. Many died because of Hamas' strategy of launching rockets (at Israeli civilians) from behind their own civilian population. If you look at the break down of statistics, most were males and aged 15-17 - of legal fighting age in Islamic tradition. As the Italian journalist reported from the scene:
Cremonesi also quoted civilians who said Hamas used ambulances to flee from Israeli snipers, and that civilians were forced to stay in their homes, from which Israel Defense Force soldiers were being fired on. According to one man, identified as Abu Issa, 42, of Tel Awwa, "They tried to goad the Israelis on. Sometimes they were only 16 or 17, armed with machine-guns ... They knew they were much weaker, but they wanted the Israelis to fire on our homes so they would be accused of war crimes."
His cousin, Um Abdallah, 48, said: "On almost all the roofs of the tall buildings that were hit by Israeli bombs there were rocket-launchers or Hamas look-outs. They placed them by the U.N. storehouse that burned down."
C4 on 23 Jan 2009> Note further that these 16 and 17 year olds - armed with machine-guns, end up being reported as child/civilian casualties.
So once again we see the Pallywood propaganda stream in action.http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/897708
Indeed, when we look at deaths since the Gaza war, the 19 minors killed were all male and most all of them were aged 15 and up (with a 12, 13 and 14-year old casualty; recall that 75% of the population is female and under age 15, yet only 16% of these victims fall in that group. Which statistically confirms that these are not random murders of children, let alone sleeping in their beds). Indeed, only 1 was killed in his home (when armed terrorists were operating adjacent to it) and at least 7 of these "minors" were armed and engaging in attacks when killed. That's not counting the 14-year old who was attempting to drop cinder blocks ("stones") on soldiers from a rooftop.
It is precisely this illegal use of child soldiers that makes other children suspects and endangers them.
But don't expect the usual suspects to condemn that.
They are willing to sacrifice both the child soldiers and their innocent peers for the gain of then demonizing Israel for killing child soldiers and - inadvertently sometimes killing innocent children.
Given that more Palestinian Arabs are killed than Israelis are murdered, you'd think that ianct and his ilk would call for the end of violence. To the contrary, his goal is to demonize Israel to perpetuate the violence against it, regardless of how many people (his own, let alone Jews) die in the process.
