But then someone from Gaza threw a pencil at Bibi and the IDF shouted SELF DEFENSE while pouring white phosphorous on a completely unrelated family who were tied to the chair while the rest of the UN nodded in assent and sympathy.

Meh, he's just talking tough because the UN has admitted that they were housing weapons in one of their schools, and gee, they were going to had the weapons over to Israel in a few days, but gosh, the weapons have gone missing.

"thousands of terrorists were meant to cross over to Israel from Gaza through the tunnels and kill and kidnap as many Israelis as they could. The source added that the army learned about the huge planned attack during the interrogations of Hamas prisoners, captured during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza."

Reports state that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed his cabinet about the foiled plot during a Thursday cabinet meeting. The leader of the Jewish State reportedly expressed to officials that if this attack was not stopped, the number of Israeli fatalities may have been higher than the over 2,200 deaths Israel suffered during 1973 Yom Kippur War.


they averted a planned attack by bulldozing those tunnels.

Okay, as far as it goes - but to really make it a party, we need to provide the Palis with some reasonable parity in arms - some state of the art missiles, anti-aircraft systems, and a few small nukes.Make it a fight worth watching.
It doesn't really matter who "wins".

Hamas is evil in that they are so very willing to encourage civilian casualties as a side-effect of their belligerent activity against Israel and Israel is evil because they are so very very willing to oblige Hamas in this respect, and even encourage continued mutual belligerence.

I almost wish I could engineer a pox that attacked people who are so full of hate, except I guess that actually wanting to do so would be a bit of a suicide attack.

You might consult your local community college regarding a reading comprehension course. Firstly, I opted out of wanting to kill which you could understand via "almost". Next, many Israelis and many Palestinians would prefer if this entire nonsense went away. But even though I expect that is a majority on both sides, there's a reality of a hard core ~25% that will continue the belligerence, and, given that hard core, each side feels the need to protect themselves because somebody will be sure to relight whatever fires get put out.

Get down off your high horse. If you want to weasel out of my point by attacking my supposed lack of reading comprehension then consider that I ended the sentence with an interrogative, implying an open question. I'm just sick and tired of "glass parking lot" replies, and your veiled reference happened to be the one I chose to respond to.

By all accounts, the largest estimated death toll is 848 Palestinians.

PRO-TIP: 848 dead does not a "genocide" make.

And ya' know what else? That 848 would be a lot lower if Hamas could refrain from using the Palestinian populace as human shields.

Your "logic" is rather strained. Abuses by the IDF do not change Hamas launching missiles from schools or other civilian cover. My point (part of my point anyway) is that wrongs by one side do not excuse wrongs by the other side. Essentially, we have guerrilla warfare on both sides. It is "short term" effective, for both sides. But nobody pushing the conflict seem genuinely interested in the welfare of your average Palestinian. And few pushing the conflict are actually interested in the general welfare of an average Israeli, or if they are, they are simultaneously ambivalent(at best) about the welfare of the 'other side'.

/i can see the leader of Hamas getting arrested for lobbing rockets into civilian areas, and they are coming out of civilian areas as well.  What do you suggest the Israelis do? They have to shoot back at something.  So they shoot back at where the rockets come from.  Then the derpers in hamas film the casualties in Gaza, and say "omg....look at how bad Israel is...they are bombing CHILDREN".  When it was Hamas that started it by firing weapons out of Gaza neighborhoods.   Propaganda...look it up.

Well something you evidently missed... the kid on the hood was arrested during violent 'protest' or in truth riots... as was the kid handcuffed (throwing stones... not rocks and Molotov cocktails at soldiers is frowned upon...).  None of them are being used as shields.  The blonde girl has been detained during several west bank 'protest' (riots).  Her parents take her there and then the girl physically assaults the soldiers while mommy and daddy take pictures... Even here in the US if a girl of 10 attacks a police officer they will be taken into custody.  The girl is trying to run away from the officer she was just attacking.  The girl is released into her parents custody shortly thereafter.

Your attempt at using pictures taken out of context is pathetic.  Israel doesn't hold weapons up to people and force them to stay in a house that is about to be bombed... nope Israel calls ahead and tells the people to get out... Hamas on the other hand wants international support by making their civilians die, while they hide in tunnels that were built using relief aid that was meant for the people... who never saw any of it.

1. Hamas wants Israel for its "holy" areas.
2. Hamas lobs unguided rockets into Israel blowing up random buildings and injuring and killing civilians.
3. Hamas uses civilian buildings for cover to fire their derp rockets.
4. Israel gets tired of being bombed, so they fire back at the area the rockets are coming from, or, when they get pissed enough, invade Gaza and do a house to house trying to root out the religious nut jobs who are trying to kill them.
5. Everyone gets pissed at Israel for killing civilians, even though they use guided munitions, where Hamas uses unguided "hope this kills someone" rockets."
6. Hamas posts vids of dead kids, wailing mothers, and distraught fathers gnashing their teeth over a shredded body, and tout how the Israel government are all monsters who murder children.
7. Everyone flames Israel.

Well then, I guess if you are OK with suicide attacks that might be true. It is my fault for presuming that suicide attacks are self-evidently evil, and further that there is an added hypocrisy alluded to in hating people who are consumed with hate so much that you kill them. I did not spell that out for you. Apologies for over-estimating my audience.

The "mow the grass" policy that propagandists keep bragging about actually makes israel complicit in all of this.
