Israel of course has the right to defend its self, however the use of force with little regard for who the casualties will be is not what we expect from a modern democracy.

Hamas's hiding places according to Israel are everywhere so they bomb everything just in case the enemy is there?

It seems that Israel is using world war two German tactics to get at Hamas by killing 20 or more Palestinians for every Israeli that is killed.

This may not be a planned ratio but it appears to many of its allies that this is the result of their over zealous resolve to destroy Hamas at any cost.

Palestinian civilian causalities are apparently considered acceptable collateral damage even if they be children, elderly or doctors and nurses.

The Israeli Broadcasting Authority has banned a radio advertisement from a human rights organisation which listed the names of some of the scores of children killed in Gaza since the conflict began 17 days ago.
B'Tselem's appeal against the decision was rejected on Wednesday. It intends to petition Israel's supreme court on Sunday in an effort to get the ban overturned.

Below is a rough list of locations hit by Israel so far.

They hid at the El-Wafa hospital.
They hid at the Al-Aqsa hospital.
They hid at the beach, where children played football.
They hid at the yard of 75-year-old Muhammad Hamad.
They hid among the residential quarters of Shujaya.
They hid in the neighbourhoods of Zaytoun and Toffah.
They hid in Rafah and Khan Younis.
They hid in the home of the Qassan family.
They hid in the home of the poet, Othman Hussein.
They hid in the village of Khuzaa.
They hid in the thousands of houses damaged or destroyed.
They hid in 84 schools and 23 medical facilities.
They hid in a cafe, where Gazans were watching the World Cup.
They hid in the ambulances trying to retrieve the injured.
They hid themselves in 24 corpses, buried under rubble.
They hid themselves in a young woman in pink household slippers, sprawled on the pavement, taken down while fleeing.
They hid themselves in two brothers, eight and four, lying in the intensive burn care unit in Al-Shifa.
They hid themselves in the little boy whose parts were carried away by his father in a plastic shopping bag.
They hid themselves in the “incomparable chaos of bodies” arriving at Gaza hospitals.
They hid themselves in an elderly woman, lying in a pool of blood on a stone floor.
Hamas, they tell us, is cowardly and cynical, well I think this is the kettle calling the pot black.
They say that once you behave like your enemy you become your own enemy. Israel is looking in a looking glass and can't see what sort of image it is creating.
