Cenk Uygur's analysis of Israel's war on Gaza has resulted in the conclusion that Israel is intentionally targeting civilians in order to break their will so they will abandon Hamas and violent resistance. Basically terrorizing them. The latest UN building struck by IDF's airstrikes killing 10 people warned the IDF 33 TIMES that only refugees were inside, 0 militants (source).

Ironically, it appears the Palestinians were already abandoning Hamas before this war even started. New Palestinian Poll Shows Hardline Views, But Some Pragmatism Too



"As Israel showed signs of scaling back its ground offensive in Gaza, its war from the skies continued Sunday, as an airstrike outside a U.N. school in southern Gaza killed at least 10 people. The bloodshed sparked some of the harshest U.S. criticism of Israel since the war began.

Capt. Eytan Buchman, a spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces, said the targets of the attack in the border city of Rafah were three Palestinian militants riding past the school on a motorcycle. “We identified a successful hit on the target,” Buchman said. “We definitely don’t target civilians or schools.”

But according to eyewitnesses and U.N. officials, an Israeli missile struck just outside the gates of the school. About 3,000 Palestinians were seeking refuge at the facility, and a crowd of civilians had gathered outside — children buying ice cream from a sidewalk vendor, and men and women purchasing food or cigarettes, witnesses said."* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

This is so ignorant...How did Israel only kill 10 people if it was targeting civilians...Israel could have wiped out the entire population of Gaza at any given moment...

The Dahiya doctrine



The Dahiya doctrine is a military strategy put forth by the Israeli general Gadi Eizenkot that pertains to asymmetric warfare in an urban setting, in which the army deliberately targets civilian infrastructure, as a means of inducing suffering for the civilian population, thereby establishing deterrence

Kinda looks like they are using it in Gaza at the moment, the have used it before in Lebanon in 2006.

It's like these people live in opposite world. Arabs want Israel completely destroyed. Israel wants to live as a nation in peace.

During WW II, more German civilians were killed than US civilians.

I guess (to make it fair) we should have allowed Germany to reciprocate in kind and allow bombings of American cities.

Have you not been following the war? Gaza has been leveled and it's infrastructure demolished. Sure Israel can level it all in one fell swoop but that would make them look terrible so that's a lame excuse. Everyone has condemned Israel's actions to date, but lets ignore that.

Did you even bother to watch the video before declaring this thread stupid?

The reason the IDF is loading stuff into Gaza is because they and Egypt are the only ones who can thanks to blockades. It's like praising a prison guard for feeding the prisoners.

When did Germany invade/bomb America?

An eye for an eye is never the answer.

War is never the answer. And it is NOT eye for an eye. That's when you want things equal.

War is all about being as unequal as possible and winning.

I see no intention from Israel to kill civilians as many as possible.They give warnings, sms, strikes are careful and surgical.Only solution for this conflict is Palestinians themselves to expel and ignore Hamas.They voted for them , they are guilty for this situation.Germans also voted for Hitler.There is one fact. Hamas lay down the weapon-peace, Israel lay down the weapon - no Israel.Almost all extreme radical muslims want Israel gone and all Israelis gone , dead.And not only Israelis , all western infidels , even and you.

Is this normal for you?

Can we please stop with these ludicrous threads?

If someone wants to make an argument that the IDF is using excessive force in responding to the threat posed by Hamas, despite the fact that Hamas is deliberately attacking Israel from areas among the civilian population and infrastructure, then let's have a logical discussion.

To suggest that the IDF is intentionally targeting civilians in light of all the precautions that have been taken to minimize civilian casualties under extremely difficult circumstances is nothing but unsubstantiated anti Israeli propaganda.

If you were to actually look for an example of Israelis targeting civilians look no further than to the strikes on UN buildings. As I've posted in my OP, the last UN building hit warned the IDF 33 times not strike, they did it anyway. You remain willfully ignorant to these actions but the entire world and their Govts do not.

This is why we can't engage in a productive conversation about this issue because one of us views things with blinders on.

If Hamas had their way they would make it equal but Israel and Egypt are doing well to keep things imbalanced, which is a good thing because screw Hamas.

I agree, war shouldn't be the answer.

The strike was not directed at a UN facility. It was directed at Hamas militants near the UN facility. There is a huge difference.

If the UN facility was directly targeted, thousands would have perished.

I can see clearly , no blinders here.Hamas is using hospitals , schools and UN buildings for hiding weapons and bombs and for command centres and rocket-launching sites.

A lame excuse by the IDF. Militants were near, apparently on a motorbike so the IDF throws caution to the wind and kills civilians, like that's any better.
