Detroit News editorial page editor Nolan Finley writes in his blog

“Israel appears to be readying for a massive ground invasion of the terrorist infested Gaza Strip. Israel’s success depends on its ability to close its ears to the worldwide outcry over dead Palestinian children.

"Because there will be dead children. Already, children and other civilians are dying under the week-long barrage of Israeli bombs. But Hamas terrorists are also dying, and that’s what matters.”

What in the world is this?! Killing children is never justified no matter what the circumstances are or who dies along with them. There are ALWAYS diplomatic approaches to conflict which can be employed, and few diplomatic tools if any appear to be engaged in this conflict. While Hamas maybe labeled a terrorist group by various political entities, it seems as if Israel has taken up terrorist techniques as well. The killing of children is seen by many as the ultimate form of terror....
