The Laws of War Matter in Gaza
National Review On-Line ^ | JULY 26, 2014 | Andrew C. McCarthy

Manifestly, Palestinians knew this when they voted to be led by this notorious Muslim Brotherhood franchise, which has ruled Gaza for nearly a decade.

They also knew that Hamas operatives wage war through barbaric jihadist methods: intentionally targeting civilians for mass-murder attacks; refraining from wearing uniforms or otherwise distinguishing themselves as military combatants; blending in among the non-combatant population, and using civilian infrastructure — schools, hospitals, mosques, homes, etc. — as the launch-pad for rocket attacks, the storage depot for their arsenal, and the safe-haven for jihadist training and plotting.

I don’t pity the Palestinians a bit. They knew who they were voting in.

The laws of war are intended to reduce its horrors.

Anyone whose strategy is to systematically violate the laws of war intends to increase those horrors.

And anyone who promote the propaganda of the terrorist strategy subverts the laws of war and is complicit.

They knew what they were doing in 2006.

It had always worked before. It's like feeling sorry for the Germans in 1945. As Bomber Harris said, "They sowed the wind, they have reaped the whirlwind."
