All U.N. schools in Gaza are clearly marked, and they fly the Organization's distinctly discernible blue-and-white flags.
Moreover, he told reporters, Israel has been provided with Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates of all of UNRWA's installations in Gaza.
So there could not have been a misidentification of the U.N. school in the Jabaliya refugee camp whose compound was hit by an artillery shell early this week.

The following quote from 2002, cited in a recent NYTimes Op-Ed piece is one of the most telling I have yet seen -
This war on the people of Gaza isn’t really about rockets. Nor is it about “restoring Israel’s deterrence,” as the Israeli press might have you believe. Far more revealing are the words of Moshe Yaalon, then the Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff, in 2002: “The Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people.”

This has to end before Israel kills more innocent people in the crossfire.
"313 women and children dead, 1,532 wounded.
Thus accepting the Jewish government of the land, and its laws.

Was not cultural clash the whole reason for division of the province? Or actually two divisions?
I mean - land was promissed by British to Jews too and earlier then 1920.This resulted in massive Jewish emigration to Palestine. So once hundreds of thousands of Jews were there - it was kind of no-stop process
I read your thread, and considered it as a solid and really invested one i fail to see how you say that it is ok not to obey rules of the country one lives in - without it conflict will claim blood internally.
Is that your wish?
Israel is there, it is a fact. There are several generations of people born there. Jews and Arabs.
Your point is that since Zionism had an idea to establish Jewish home it is ok now to keep fighting. Well - it pretty much hundreds of thousands of corpses you talk about. At least.
Also - please explain that:
If Jewish settlers will refuse to move out to proper Israel in the final stages of peace agreement - will it be ok for them not to obey Palestinian rule since culture is different?
After all - they lived there before Palestine was established. As Arabs lived in the land before Israel was established in 1948.

In my thread Revisionist Zionism, I show that the current political parties in Israel are dominated by the same groups for decades, which before Israel, were groups called Irgun and Lehi, which were considered terrorist organizations for their brutal attacks, and bombings against the British.
Do you really expect much more from the Israeli government when these parties were founded off right wing Jewish extremists?
Israeli government and Hamas are both terrorist, the Israeli government is just far more effective at it right now.
