There you have it Democracy in Action !!!

Members of the Samouni family said that they were rounded up late Sunday night by Israeli soldiers and ordered to gather for their own safety in a single dwelling in the impoverished Zeitoun district of Gaza city, a Hamas stronghold. The next morning, they said, the building was shelled.

In its report on Friday, the United Nations agency confirmed the family’s account, saying that 110 people had been forced into the house on Sunday. “The next day the house was shelled,” Allegra Pacheco, an agency spokeswoman, told BBC television, quoting unidentified witnesses.

"human shields" ???

What we all have witnessed is a massive and unexcused use of military force against civilians...We do blame Hamas for firing rockets into Israel, but rounding an entire family in a house and then shelling them is a WAR CRIME...please don't twist words here, these people where not "human shields" as you called them. They are Killed in Cold Blood by Israeli forces and this is reported by the New York Times which is a respectable American newspaper and the United Nations confirmed this report...

Israel response should be civilized since it brags about being the only Democracy in the Middle East. But I guess that Israel has its own definition for Democracy. I don't think that a democratic state would want to build its future on the bodies of women and children...

Appalling.. If this is confirmed independently. It should be dealt with as a war crime.
