Trying to formulate cohesive thoughts about Israel’s new war against Hamas is quite difficult because of the complexity. However, I do believe Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni’s words sum things up pretty well,
Israel is trying to avoid civilian casualties, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told reporters Monday, while “Hamas is looking for children to kill.”
“Hamas is targeting deliberately kindergartens and schools and citizens and civilians because this is according to their values. Our values are completely different. We are trying to target Hamas, which hides among civilians,” Livni said.
