    These are the names of 21 children killed in Gaza

    By Ishaan Tharoor July 10


    Renewed hostilities between Israel and militants in the Gaza Strip have seen hundreds of rockets flying into Israeli territory and about 450 Israeli strikes on targets in Gaza, a thin coastal enclave that is one of the more densely packed places on Earth. Israel insists that it's cracking down on the threat posed by the Islamist group Hamas and that it is taking pains to avoid civilian casualties.

    But civilians are dying. According to Gaza's Health Ministry, which is administered by the territory's Hamas-dominated government, Israeli airstrikes in the past few days have killed at least 83 people, including 21 children age 16 and younger, according to Beirut-based newspaper al-Akhbar. The death toll and the list of the names of the deceased were provided to al-Akhbar and are republished below. The names of the children whose ages have been identified are marked in bold. A Thursday morning strike on a compound in Khan Younis refugee camp killed eight members of the al-Hajj family, including five children, according to reports.

    Living in Malaysia we get such lists pushed down our throats as in force-feeding or like the glucose bottle needle in the veins of patients in a Hospital...and ALWAYS ONLY of the Palestinians..Iraqis, Afghans, Pakistanis. Moros, Rohingyas..NEVER a single name of any Israeli toddler..non Muslim Iraqi, SIKH Afghani..Sikh Pakistani..Christian, Hindu, Buddhists..etc etc....like 100% ONLY Muslims are being killed, maimed, murdered, mistreated....
    There has been TOTAL SILENCE on the Syrian massacres, the Iraqi Massacres and no names or lists came out...because then it would become clear that Muslim Shias are murdering Muslim Sunnis or vice versa..But since this past week..the focus has shifted to Gaza and Israel...such one sided LISTS are on every front page ad nauseum...

    WAR has this bad side effect..people die.innocents die..collateral damage..mothers lose sons, wives lose husbands, husbands lose wives..sisters lose brothers..BUT then the LOSERS are on BOTH SIDES....and we have to SEE BOTH SIDES.

    This present round of hostilities actually began with the Abduction and MURDER of 3 Israeli Teenagers in Israel...their names are not mentioned at all ??? They too were someones brothers, sons, husbands...and INNOCENT too...

    saddened by all this...:swordfight-kudiyan:

    I feel very sorry for the casualties, these children certainly didn't deserve such a painful death.

    Saying this, and not wanting to get into any debate (because I don't want to take sides in this War), the Hamas should stop operating from residential areas and using innocent civilians as human shields and putting them constantly in the line of harm. The fault lies on both sides.

    What the Palestinians are going through is similar to what Sikhs went through in the 80's.

    the situation is almost 360Degrees different ji...the Palestinians simply REFUSE to deal with the Israelis..they want to drive them back into the sea..the Palestinians have over 40 Arab Govts and a BILLION MUSLIMS BACKING them...
    The Europeans, the USA, the UK, the UNO symapthsie with them..Presidents like Carter Bush Obama etc regualrly try to solve their problems....

    SIKHS have always sought reconciliation..they ahve no Govts supporting them..we also dont have a BILLION sikhs worldwide..and certianly no Europe or Uk or USa or any barak Obama or Bush ahs come to support the SIKHS...so the situation is ??????

    And One last Most Important difference..SIKHS have NEVER sought to stay in REFUGEE CAMPS....even in 1947..the REFUGEE CAMPS were for a very short period..hardly 6 months..before the Sikhs moved ON..the Palestinians have lived in RC for past 65 YEARS...many 3rd generation Palestinians born in RCamps...and SIKHS have NOT produced a SINGLE SUICIDE BOMBER or run any planes into any buildings or planted bombs in railway stations bus stations or skyscrapers like the WTC...so there is avast difference between the 2....

    I wanted to the point that the same struggle for equal rights. Palestinians just like Sikhs are being oppressed. Other than that yes there is a vast difference in terms of what both wanted to achieve.

    Just like the media being very biased about this situation. It shows the crude side of world power media where they see Israel doing the right thing killing hundreds and injuring many Palestinians as "revenge". This is almost the same case scenario where Indian gov. made Sikhs look like they were separatists and so on....... SO MUCH BS MEDIA. I am surprised that in this situation most world power nations are quiet on this issue.

    Compare this with the pains the Jewish community took in recording every possible detail of the Holocaust victims.

    that picture was from Israel Defense of course they would say something like that. Do more Research Jarnail ji, you'll see Israel say they are warning the civilians and such but now they are targeting hospitals and such. I don't agree with both sides though. Hamas should of taken the peace talk with Israel they were given a opportunity and now they declined and now more missiles and more of Palestinians. I even saw Jewish civilians watching front row seats on top of a hill of the missile attacks on Palestinians? Are they dumb or do they understand innocent people are being killed................or they don't give a crap. Jews here in America have been protesting against Israel actually I don't know if major are against their decisions but we'll see how it goes.

    Hamas actually controls only the narrow Gaza strip, the much larger West Bank is controlled by Al-Fatah, a moderate group. In fact, Gaza and West Bank have for some time now been acting as separate political entities. The rockets on Israel have mostly been fired from Gaza, some of them even reaching the West Bank, and inflicting casualties in Palestinians residing there. All in all, leaders are playing political games while civilian Palestinians are facing the wrath of War.

    An immediate ceasefire is the only way to abate the civilian casualties.

    Supposely Israel offered, but Hamas wants to continue and defeat Israel as so the Hamas Leader said himself. I see this situation being worse than past years or so this can lead to some bad civilian casualties if they don't start talking. Of course you will see Britain and US backing up Israel so called Zionist nation. One side is saying they are defending themselves while killing innocent people and on the other side you have greedy leaders wanting land for so-called Palestinians.

    THERE ARE NO GOOD SIDES HERE. Hamas Leaders are simply wanting Israel WHOLE OF ISRAEL. Both sides are crazy enough. When Hamas are using civilians so they can make media think Israel is the bad guy here but in reality both are bad guys

    HAMAS wants Islamic rule over the whole world https://www.youtube.Com/watch?v=GDiC6KVBZUk

    Its funny how Moderate Muslims all over the world are quiet when stuff like this and ISIS in Iraq are happening. They know they can't say anything or else their own people will go against them or call them a "infidel". Out of 1 billion Muslims I don't see atleast 1 million Muslims condemning ISIS or such Islamic extremist forces by protesting or going against their actions. (not saying all muslims are for muslim ruling over the world, but why so quiet)
