Just like you can justify the body count on the same side of the fence that the ceasefire was broken from?
When Pope Francis visited the Holy Land in May, he wasn't there as an emissary to the Muslims or to the Jews in the area. He visited political and religious leaders of both groups, but he was there to minister to the Christians in the region who are caught between Muslim groups like Hamas and Israeli leaders -- neither of whom have the welfare of Christians at the top of their respective agendas.

I saw someone ask the question, "They've known about these tunnels for years, so why now?" That's a pretty good question. But I suppose it's always a good strategy of modern-day war apologists to have a "reason."

Hate to break this to you but Israel is the one that broke the ceasefire. When the ceasefire was started Israel still went about looking for and destroying tunnels this is a violation of the ceasefire because during one no hostile military actions are allowed.
Really? This particular ceasefire? I don't think you are understanding. Israel wasn't shooting at anyone. Destroying tunnels weren't prohibited. Who was the party that fired and broke the truce? Facts seem to be that within 2 hours of the ceasefire starting, Hamas was attacking IDF troops.
You can't stand it when your terrorists act like terrorists. Face it, Hamas is to blame for the failure of the ceasefire. Keep making excuses for them.
