The Corner

The one and only.

One for the “Moral Equivalence” Crowd


Here is a good example of Hamas’s modus operandi. They set up a mortar team next to a school crowded with refugees, fire a few rounds (acoustic mortar detectors can locate the source fairly quickly), then run before the counterstrike arrives. Innocent people pay the price — in this case, 30 killed, 55 wounded. This has happened at two different schools so far. So Hamas is not just hiding among civilians or using them as human shields, they are intentionally engineering headline-grabbing mass casualty events they can blame on Israel. Great bunch of guys.
