Why a Hospital IS a Legitimate Target..

There are those who continue to cry about disproportional responses and the injuring of civilians. So, if Gaza had wounded, where would they take them to?

In a normal world, you'd take them to a hospital...but in Gaza, a hospital is just another building from which to fire at Israel. People seem to be horrified that Israel is firing at a hospital. What amazes me is why the world isn't horrified that Hamas is using hospitals to store explosives, rockets, weapons...

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was angry that Hamas had used UNRWA schools as arsenals. He said, "those responsible are turning schools into potential military targets, and endangering the lives of innocent children, UN employees working in such facilities and anyone using the UN schools as shelter." Sadly, I didn't hear him condemn the fact that UNRWA gave the rockets BACK to Hamas, thus proving where their true sympathies and support go.

He didn't mention that the same is true of hospitals. He should have. And I didn't hear him commend Israel for doing all it can to avoid civilian casualties. Here's a video showing an example of this - a hospital - from which shots are fired. Israel warned them to evacuate the hospitals. Two days later, it checked...are all the wounded out...upon confirmation - the hospital was blown up...but watch carefully - the first hit is ours...the secondary explosions are a result of massive amounts of weapons there. 

Four years later, I say again - a hospital that has missiles in it is not a hospital but an arsenal. A school, a mosque, a home - that is used to shelter weapons is an arsenal and a legitimate target.
