NW, two wrongs don't make a right. What, they are lobbing rockets at Israel (who has the most advanced defense capability thanks to the US) so Israel should turn around and kill innocent people in populated areas? This conflict will never end, so the US should stay out of it. And didn't Obama start out (like Hillary_siding with the Palestinians? What happened to change his mind? But don't ever accuse HIM OF FLIPFLOPPING.

"innocent"?
they ELECTED HAMAS,and support them.
That makes them complicit.
and stupid because HAMAS uses them as pawns and shields,gets them killed or maimed.

Israel shows great restraint. Trust me, if killing civillians was their goal, the body count would be in the tens of thousands.

A new CNN poll shows only 40 percent of Democrats support Israel's response to Hamas launching repeatedly rockets into their country.

"Although most Americans think the Israeli actions are justified, there are key segments of the public who don't necessarily feel that way," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Only four in ten Democrats think the Israeli actions in Gaza are justified, compared to 74% of Republicans and 59% of independents. Support for Israel's military action is 13 points higher among men than among women, and 15 points higher among older Americans than among younger Americans."
