Have another cocktail. "Imagine pushing your kids out of windows to safety while a bulldozers charges into your house without warning. " Without warning, Ha! The area is the size of a soccer field. It took the jews a week to clear it. That is a pace less then a meter per hour. But maybe the palis are as stupid as you are and even though there is room to room fighting, propane bombs going off less than 40 meters from your house---you'd stay there, with your children never the less. Get real, this is no forum to peddle ignorent pap.

Well said. Except it's not ignorance, it's propaganda. 13,000 people fled the camp well in advance of the operation. It's not as if they had no idea and no warning. The evidence is overwhelming that the innocent people had ample time to leave, as most of them did.
As you said, it went on for days. They could have done like Assad did to Hama, and just gone in and shelled the camp until it was completely destroyed and 20,000 people were dead. But they didn't. They went in house to house, risking the lives of their own men -- 23 of whom died -- and concentrated their efforts only on the center of the terrorist dens, weapons, fighters and bomb factories, leaving 90% of the town untouched.
