Giving 100,000 non-combatant civilians notice of a lethal bombardment of their homes, irrespective of age, health, mobility or alternative shelter is is murder, plain and simple.
It has already been suggested as a massive war crime, should it take place - the fact that such an act is even being considered is an indication of the depravity of such an act, whether it takes place or not.
A letter form the Palestinian Ambassador, to the Irish Times in response to one by the Israeli Ambassador defending such an act points out that while Israel has places of shelter for its people, Gaza has none.
So far, the Palestinian death toll is 200 plus, 20% of these children, while Israeli casualties remain precisely none.
Murder, plain and simple
