A friend of mine sent something unusual, a link to a blog post talking about a Gazan doctor who normally works near Tel Aviv, who often reports to Channel 10. During one of his reports, the ultimate tragedy strikes. SEE it here (thank you Oskar)
Dr. Loses Kids to IDF Bomb During interview to Israeli TV
Israeli public opinion, while still of the opinion that this operation was a good idea, is moving decidedly to the "OK, we're done here" view, as my good friend and mentor Shai Golden put it in Haaretz's "This Week" supplement's main hed today. But as any student of history knows, there sometimes passes an awful long period (at least subjectively) between the realization that an armed conflict has run its course, and when the (now admittedly needless) slaughter of people actually stops.
So, Israel's channel 10 is interviewing its regular "good Palestinian", Dr. Az A-Din Abu al-Ayash, an OB-GYN who actually works at Israel's Tel HaShomer hospital outside Tel Aviv. (In other words, he's an OB_GYN able to practice his love with women across the country).
So Channel 10's Shlomi Eldar is interviewing the good doctor by phone, live on TV, when suddenly there's a boom and the doctor begins to scream "Oh god, they killed my daughters". Oops! One of our tanks missed its actual target and took out the good Dr's house, killing two of his daughters and injuring a third (who, because Dali had nothing on reality, was airlifted to the same hospital where her dad works).
This, by the way, happened after the doctor complained earlier in the week that a tank with its barrel pointed directly at the his window was making him nervous. So Ronni Daniel, the (traitor to journalism, embedded IDF spokesman) military reporter for Channel 2, reportedly spoke to the commander in question and got him to point that thing someplace else. Only temporarily, as it turns out.

Very disturbing and troubling. It is a sad fact that these people generally support terrorism/war against Israel, and America. The consequences of supporting a group such as Hamas that lives among them is unfortunately something like this.
'They fired hugs and love and peace, nothing else was fired,' the doctor said about his deceased daughters in later phone interview with the channel.

That video made me bawl my eyes out. That is the most horrible thing i have ever heard. Why do people do this? That is psychotic. How can someone kill, knowing that they're killing a child?
The Israeli military told the channel that the shell that hit the house was in response to rockets fired from the home
