Haifa, Israel There is only one thing worse than the image of a child killed by military conflict, and that is the image of a child killed by military conflict having deliberately been placed in the line of fire.
But solid evidence now reveals how Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza have been deliberately placing their civilian population in mortal danger, choreographing a number of seemingly gory scenes, as well as releasing images from other conflicts, such as Iraq and Syria, and passing them off as dead Gazan civilians killed by Israeli missiles.
In an attempt to persuade the world that Israel is committing war crimes and to distract attention away from the illegal and immoral use of their own population as human shields, Hamas has resorted to staging a number of fake deaths and scenes of severely injured people right in front of international TV crews.
The BBC recently broadcast a news report showing a man being carried off by four others, seemingly the victim of an Israeli missile strike, only for him to reappear in the same clip a few seconds later wandering around completely unharmed. The same organizations Jon Donnison yesterday re-tweeted a picture of the dead body of a young girl on a stretcher in Gaza with the headline "Heartbreaking," only for it to transpire that the girl had sadly been killed three weeks earlier in Syria.

Israel has the right of self defense.
If Mexico was firing rockets into San Diego, CA or Brownsville, TX, the US Military would be retaliating with drones and troops on the border...
One must wander if there is any intelligent life at the WaPo or the NY times.
You sure about that?
I don’t think so.
I’d bet my money on a “stand down” order from god knows where (according to the white house)
I guess Obama might surrender to Mexico and apologize for Mexico bombing the US.
Killing babies for the cause.
Soul mates with the liberals.
Not so fast. Mexico is firing missiles into the US, albeit small missiles (bullets) endangering and killing our border patrol officers. And yet we do nothing.
This is something that Hamas has been doing for YEARS..they kill their own people then have the media come in and show the dead bodies and the media reports that Israel did it..Hamas uses the media like a fiddle because they know that most of the Western media hates Israel..at least we have Fox News reporting the obvious
Israel warns ahead of their strikes, but Hamas shoots their rockets from hospitals, school yards and apartments with children inside and then screams bloody murder.
They’re Satan’s monsters.

Ummm, with Obama in the White House, I am not so sure about that. He would probably respond with an apology tour in Mexico.
Whaaat? No, they'd be using beanbags and sound waves while Zero arranged reparations for the damage done by all the drugs we bought.
I understand what you mean, but that may not be the perfect perpetrator for your analogy right now.
This kind of propaganda worked well for them in Bosnia didn’t it?
Very well said.
Mexico has sent an enormous non combat invasion force.
