This is what started the violence, on Nov 11. Shooting a child who is playing soccer from a helicopter is a brutal and inhumane act!! It was clearly intended to provoke a reaction by the Palestinians, who react to the murder of their childr...in exactly the same way you would. The Palestinians shot at the IDF soldiers. Israel retaliated by shooting two more children, then opened fire on the funeral for one of them. Each act by Israel was intended to provoke the maximum rage in the families of the victims. Meanwhile, in the United States, all we saw on ABCNNBBCBSFOX was Petraeus-gate, and the first news about Israel and Gaza reported to the American audience was when Gaza fired some rockets into Israel and was portrayed as the unreasonable aggressor who started it all.
