Hamas Terrorists Hide in UN School

IDF blog

Hamas terrorists hide in a school belong to the UN agency UNRWA and yet again use the Palestinian people as a human shield, IDF Spokesperson Capt. Benjamin Rutland reports.

Today Israel fired a on a UN School in Gaza, killing 40, including some children. According to the IDF, early reports suggest that there were mortars fired upon them from the school. Hamas has a history of using this school as a launching point for mortars, and the students as human shields.

The UN is not even a poser. They are working with Hamas. The objectives set forth in the UN charter is scorned and reviled by the jihad body of dhimmis and Islamists.

The IDF stated that a number of Hamas gunmen were inside the school, among them Imad and Hassan Abu-Askar, who are known to the IDF as Hamas operatives.

The bad guy always grabs a kid in the movies to keep from being shot. Chicken shit Hamas. Hiding behind little kids. Thinking that we won't go after them in a school? At least Israel is fighting the way wars should be fought--no rules. I'm sorry for innocent children being in the way because it breaks my heart, but their families should take up arms against Palestine and Hamas and tell them they are no longer welcome in a more inhospitable way than they are used to.

Too bad the IDF had a bad friendly fire incident, otherwise let the killing proceed, destroy them in place, the sooner the ragheads figure out that hiding amongst civilians and using the kids as shields only results in higher casualties the better.
Anyone remember the V1 and London, the rape of Nanking, Bataan, the following bombing of Dresden, the battles to take back Iwo, Guam and the Phillipines, the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki??? All were done to maximize the shock on the supporting populace and to demoralize and defeat our enemy, this is what Israel is doing only with her hands tied and one arm behind her back. Playing tit for tat. Let loose the dogs of war!!! Saturation bomb the entire Gaza if need be.

Just like HIV/AIDS, too many countries are populated with people infected with the moral equivalency virus of equating Islamofascist/Hamas/Palestinian terrorism with democratic Israeli defense of it's civilian population from this declaration of war and savage behavior. These moral equivalency people spread their disease through unprotected contact at the UN and with the all too willing MSM. Just like HIV/AIDS destroys and kills the human body, so does this terror supporting moral equivalency mentality destroy democracy and freedom.

The real immoral equivalency in Gaza is Hamas and the UN/UNRWA. Both are responsible for any and all of the pain and suffering of the "innocent civilians".

The head of the UN administration in the West Bank and Gaza admits Hamas members are on his payroll. Media outlets ignore it.

Lynn, your right, you reminded me os even some of the old westerns how the bad guys would grab a kid and use him to hide behind to get to his horse to get out of town.
