They don't care who they kill - kill kids - the elderly will die off anyway. Sick people.

> They don't care who they kill
- exactly. And in some cases, kids were even targeted deliberately.

There's one thing which makes USraHell's indiscriminate mass-killings appear even worse than they are: the (extremely, probably "world-record-)high fertility-rate in (certainly: Palestine; thus, presumably in) Gaza_strip, and the resulting unusually high percentage of kids in total population.

'It's a little girl, She's running defensively eastward.'
'Are we talking about a girl under the age of 10?'
'A girl about 10, she's behind the embankment, scared to death.'
'Anything moving in the zone, even a three-year old, needs to be killed.'
-- Comversation between Israeli soldiers. A 13-year old Palestinian girl was killed by a soldier on her way to school in Gaza. Twenty bullets were found in the girl's body, the soldier having emptied his magazine into her body to "confirm the kill."
-- -- ADBUSTERS #59, 05/2005
Israelis, from 2000-2004, were responsible for killing over 600 other Palestinian children.

Jews must be the worst people in the world. They must all be sent to special prisons and exterminated. Then we will all be safe.

We are all responsible for our own actions. Either the intent or the mistake is ours. One of the first lessons I teach prisoners is that "They made me do it" is a form of criminal thinking called "justification".

This is not about Jews. Zionism has nothing to do with Authentic Judaism.

Are the little Arab children going to have their houses as perpetual monuments to their lives the way Ann Frank's house is?

Mike, I know you thought you were being sarcastic, but it was in very poor taste.

Noted. As Arild stated above....collateral damage---a psychotic term used by cold-hearted bullies. That's my best explanation.

carrie to avoid this all you have to do is pick up a phone and politly call hamas and ask them to stop hiding their wepons where the children are. you are in poor taste. now you are telling mike what he thought.

No it wasn't. What is in poor taste is the way Muslims treat women. Brutal treatment of women and young girls is rampant throughout the Muslim world. The abuse and murder is condoned by Muslim governments. Muslim women are regularly subjected to beatings at the hands of their husbands, for a host of reasons. They may suffer a savage attack for having an affair, or for simply disobeying their Muslim husband's daily orders. It is also perfectly socially acceptable within the Islamic community, for a father to beat his daughter. The young girl may have spoken with a boy of whom the father does not approve, or forgotten to cover her face in public. Murder is also inflicted upon Muslim women by their husbands, fathers, and brothers. The practice is called "honor killings." A Muslim woman or young girl will often be killed by a male family member, after she is believed to have committed an act which defies Islam. If a Muslim woman is raped by someone her family will decide that she must marry the kindly rapist. In Muslim society, it is always the woman who is wrong...even when she has been raped! Muslim women are brutalized daily by their own family members. However, this fact of life in the Islamic world is completely ignored by the liberal left in this country. You may have had the chance to view the videotape of Muslims beheading an American journalist. Is that in poor taste or is my one sentence description of the holocaust in poor taste?

"Jews must be the worst people in the world. They must all be sent to special prisons and exterminated. Then we will all be safe." Yes, your comment on its own with nothing else is in poor taste. And like your diatribe above ~ has nothing to do with this article: 'A Quarter of Gaza Dead Are Kids'
