Did you know that the mounting death toll of Palestinian civilians in Gaza has nothing whatever to do with Israel?
That Israel is not in the least responsible for these deaths?
That Israel would never dream of targeting Palestinian civilians?
Just joking... of course you did!
But, just in case any of you may be harbouring - anti-Semitic? - doubts about the matter, there's always the lovely Judith Rona of Bondi to set you straight.
Just read these two sentences from her letter to the Australian of 16/7/14, and you're a believer:
"Hamas targets... its own civilians by using them as human shields."
"[Palestinian] civilians who choose to shield launch sites are directly participating in the hostilities. Their deaths are... self-inflicted."
So there you go.
You can blame Hamas.
You can blame Palestinian civilians.
But you sure-as-hell can't blame Israel, OK?
