Following the all-too-familiar trend of denying attacks on civilian targets, then loudly defending them, the Israeli Foreign Ministry today issued a statement defending last night’s attack on a UN-run girls’ school full of refugees, an attack that killed at least 20 people and wounded scores of others.
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzahi Hanegbi cited previous UN discoveries of rockets stored in closed schools, insisting the UN had no right to complain when Israel attacked any of their schools at this point.
The difference is that the schools the UN found rockets hidden in were closed for the summer, while the schools Israel has attacked so far were open and running, with the UN using them to house hundreds of thousands of civilians fleeing the Israeli onslaught.
Indeed, Israel continues to order civilians out of their homes as they escalate the attacks on the Gaza Strip, and since they’re attacking literally every city and town in Gaza there is no place to go except for these 85 UN-run shelters. Having chosen to deliberately target these shelters, Israel is only adding to the growing international outcry about their war crimes in Gaza.

Is it ever allowed that this "country", this Jewish nation…do ANYTHING the powers that be will deem wrong? Will they ever be stopped? It appears nothing they do, EVER, is too outrageous or heinous to move the US President or the AIPAC lackeys in Kongress.
No one needs an unmerciless dose of their own medicine worse than Israel (they bring it all on themselves) except maybe for their shrill and smug and apparently brain-damaged supporters.
The events since 9/11 informed the Israeli right and its lackeys just how much they could get away with, and they're putting that knowledge to genocidal use now.
a cowardly act carried out by a third rate military
The Israeli fascism regime is no longer at war with Palestinians but rather the world. While us Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama wanting to give more of free F-16 and other destructive weapons to Israel.
The Zionist must be stopped but how.
Sad. We are all humans and to hear of many being killed is so sad. I would wish they would stop the killing and live in peace, both countries.
Death to Israel
War Criminals defending the indefensible, if one looks back into Jewish history recent at that, one sees at Nuremberg argument by the German National Socialists that took action against those in the Warsaw Ghettos, stating that they attacked us, that argument was not accepted then and there is NO difference at all in circumstances between Israel and Gaza! As Israel is in fact laying siege to Gaza, that is in fact an act of War, then it is the right of Gazans to retaliate in any way they can! The French marquis were not terrorists according to the allies, because they were fighting against the Germans who had invaded their country!
Can the world put together a force to end the Tel Aviv nightmare? Gulf funding, international soldiers..? Put together the funding for that & you've got the world's largest volunteer army overnight.
Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon's words to the GS in July 1954 were, "Guys, you have to understand [that] there can be the greatest and most successful military operation, and it will turn into a political failure, meaning eventually a military failure as well. I'll give a simple example: Qibya."
qibya was a slaughter lead by sharon. I think the present gaza will end with the same message.
"International outcry" but who is lifting a finger to stop the bloodbath? The International community is afraid to assist because the wrath of the US will come down on them in form of sanctions….too much power for one country to have.
