American MSM insist on describing, and implicitly interpreting with a pro-Palestinian bias, the military conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza as an exchange of rockets that produce civilian casualties, meaning noncombatant casualties. This is clearly an effort to limit the ground in which Hamas' continual military assault on Israel can be described as provocative and unethical. This interpretation is false. Hamas with the support of other radical Islamists, such as Iran and the Hezbollah, are engaged in a war of extinction of the Jewish state and extermination of its Jewish population. All segments of Palestinian society are engaged in this war. The Hamas military is not separate from the Gazan population, but integrated and dispersed throughout it. "Civilians", including "children" are collaborators, supporters, and participants in the Hamas "military's" assault on Israel. Think for a moment of the videos of young boys participating in attacks, parades, mobs we have seen in many videos of military ferment in the Gaza. The war between Israel and radical Islam is total war between a free democratic state and a totalitarian culture state. In a total war, the distinction between combatant and non-combatant is morally suspect and the line between them blurred and often erased. Any purported distinction reflects only the political ideological bias of the person who makes it.
