Thirty-seven children died. Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora called bombing Kafr Qana a "heinous crime" committed by "Israeli war criminals."
The atrocity enraged people worldwide. Israeli state terror made headlines. Then Prime Minister Ehud Olmert lied, saying:
"The village and its surrounding areas were a source for launching hundreds of rockets."
Israeli UN ambassador Dan Gillerman's vicious lie mocked the victims, saying:
Hezbollah was responsible for "using women and children as human shields."
During Cast Lead and other times, Israel was caught redhanded using Palestinians as human shields. Israeli soldiers broke the silence. They admitted what goes on.
Many Kafr Qana victims fled there to escape Israeli terror bombing. Tyre and surrounding areas were targeted. In many parts of Lebanon, no place was safe.
Israel's blitzkrieg killed over 1,000, injured thousands more, and displaced one-fourth of Lebanon's four million people.
The Kafr Qana massacre especially backfired. It turned world public opinion against Israel. Scars remain. Cast Lead highlighted them. So did massacring nine Mavi Marmara activists and attacking other Gaza humanitarian missions.
Murdering Jamal Dalu's family is Israel's latest atrocity. Live regional television showed dead bodies in Gaza's Al Shifa Hospital.
Haaretz said this attack and other civilian casualties get Israel in trouble. It should get responsible officials imprisoned for war crimes.
Haaretz editorials and commentaries largely support Israel's aggression. Issacharoff perhaps reluctantly admitted that the great majority of Gazan victims are civilians. He stopped short of explaining that targeting them is official Israeli policy.
"(H)arsh pictures from Gaza of small children who are wounded or killed arouse very unpleasant feelings," he said.- Advertisement -
They "help to create especially supportive Palestinian and Arab public opinion for Hamas."
Social networks urge "revenge." Expect world outrage to grow the longer Israel's slaughter continues.
