Good morning everybody,
actually I don’t know if this one is real – I really hope it isn’t – but just in case it is it is the most disgusting thing I have seen in this conflict so far: Hamas calling upon the children of Gaza via al-aqsa TV to gather in front of a Hamas leader’s house so they can form a human shield against a planned Israeli airstrike.
Who in all the god’s names does something like that?
without any further words

As it seems this was blind alarm. My reader Poor Insane was nice to provide me with this link (look down at “human shields”) showing that the video first of all was aired in March last year and second of all apparently didn’t address children directly but (“only”) civilians (anybody among my readers able to translate Arabic who can confirm that?). Though of course human shields are still disgusting enough I am gravely relieved that at least this wasn’t about children. Thanks so much Poor Insane!
