While Hamas launches rockets indiscriminately at Israel’s population centers, Israel continues to be villainized by its opponents for its military operations. Despite over 1,000 targeted strikes in Gaza, civilian casualties have been kept to a minimum. This despite  Hamas’s penchant for hiding behind Gaza’s civilians. Below , however, are two videos indicative of the lengths to which Israel goes in order to avoid civilian casualties.

First video:

A member of the IAF is cleared for a strike, before reporting:

“Not clear, a car is on the road, heading south. A biker, too.”

the mission is aborted but then cleared once more before the same pilot declares:

“Move away from the target, someone is coming.”

In the second video a strike is aborted after the pilot reports civilian movement on a road near the target.

    Why should Israel care more about civilian casualties than do those civilians themselves? They support Hamas which uses civilians as shields. They participate in suicide murders and train their children for the same purpose.

    Israel will be condemned no matter what it does as long as it is acting in its interests. It might as well do what is necessary. I don’t want to see Jewish blood shed, either, but, until Israel’s enemy’s are wiped off the map, Israel will not have a day’s peace.

    They will simply wait until Israel demobilizes and go at it again. Israel must go in and get rid of them. If anyone doesn’t like it enough to do something about it, then Israel should unlock its nukes.

    That’s what they’re for, the protection of Israel. Israel’s commitment to not use nukes first is foolhardy. If they don’t use them first (or at least make it clear that they will), they aren’t likely to use them at all.
