From democracy now!:
It's Day 21 of Israel's assault on Gaza. Israeli warplanes attacked forty targets across Gaza overnight, as Israeli troops backed by tanks have pushed deep into the heart of Gaza City.
Since Israel started its bombardment of Gaza, over 1,100 Palestinians have been killed, more than 5,200 wounded. At least 700 civilians are among the dead, including more than 350 children. Thirteen Israelis have died, ten of them soldiers, including four by so-called "friendly" fire. (emphasis mine)
As I've asked before, when the "good guys" kill more innocent civilians than the bad guys do, can they still be called "good guys?"
