If you are willing to use your body as a shield for some in battle(or however you want to phrase it), then you have lost the title of civilian casualty when you get killed.

It is Israeli troops who use civilians as human shields.

But it was started by Israel when they killed Ahmad Nabhani, a Palestinian civilian.

Palestinians responded to Israel's killing of a civilian by attacking an Israeli military target, injuring four soldiers. Israel responded to that by killing more Palestinian civilians, including children. Here are some of the survivors of Israel's terrorist attack on defenseless civilians.

It was then, that Hamas finally responded by firing rockets into Israel.

Do you really expect Hamas to take the killing of Palestinian civilians ''up the ...'' and do nothing?

What kind of friend tries to sink your unarmed ship the USS Liberty with unmarked Phantomsf and torpedo boats, and tries to have Egypt blamed for it, has many, many spies spying on you, and captures and sells your secrets to your enemy as Israel did through Pollard?

You could have said the same about French civilians who hid members of the French resistance during WW2, or German civilians who hid Jews, if you were a supporter of the Nazis.

You mean you ignored the video evidence provided?

No, I was cynical about propaganda choosing to spotlight one girl allegedly shot by the Taliban, while completely ignoring the hundreds of children killed in cold blood by US drones.

When you are dealing with people who blow themselves up to kill you, would you let someone keep walking towards you that ignored commands to stop? The soliders had no way of knowing the guy was possibly mentally ill.

As for the second, the 13 y/o kid they say was shot, it says he was 1,200 meters away from where the tanks/dozers were. So you're saying that a sniper lined up and shot a random kid from over 3,600 feet away? I don't buy it.

I would say the same about myself if I were hiding out soliders in my house in a combat zone, or if they were "wanted". I would be giving up my civilian status. Nice try to tie me to supporting nazi's. Normally turning to that shows a lack of substance in your argument.

BTW, your logic is false. Hiding out Hamas, a militant group, isn't even remotely comparable to hiding out an innocent jewish family. What an absurd notion.

As was reported in the New York Times, the Israeli military said they shot a 22 year old. That was what started it.

Israel's next terrorist attack was when they killed a group of defenseless civilians, by shelling them from a tank.

What is it you don't buy?

ya'll say God don't exist, Keep attacking Israel and you'll see God's hand. Guaranteed.
Yet it will also be when Israel is standing alone, so ya'll better hope that USA still has her back.

Wrong once again, as murder is defined as the spilling of innocent blood. Killing the enemy who has blood on their hands is morally acceptable.
Don't get me started on yasser.

I did not claim you supported Nazis, and would be most surprised if you did. But the point I made did show your double standards, as it was intended to do.

Not if the Jewish family had done anything to contribute towards fighting the Nazis. Then they would have been at the very least, terrorist sympathizers, as far as the Nazis were concerned.

Seems she will be on her own in the future.....

You will advance against my people Israel like a cloud that covers the land. In days to come, Gog, I will bring you against my land, so that the nations may know me when I am proved holy through you before their eyes.

Save your insults for those who argue at that level.

Calling the Israelis cowards for targeting a military leader while staying silent as Palestinian terrorists fire rockets at civilians does not sound like a credible contribution to an intelligent discussion.
