Yes, you read it right - Palestinian war crimes. There's been a lot of condemning of Israel for their actions in Gaza and the Israel Defense Force striking targets such as schools. Having followed the news from the days of the PLO (Yassar Arafat's Palestinian Liberation Organization) to the present day PA (Palestinian Authority), which are both the same thing, I knew the answer right away. The PLO/PA was using locations such as schools as shields for their military operations.
Carolyn, NO APOLOGIES ROUND 2, sent me the following that confirmed what I already knew. The photos are clickable links to a video that shows the Palestinians kidnapping children to use as human shields on their frontlines, active firing from the top of residential buildings, and one shows a lot of children trapped on the roof of weapons factory targeted by the Israeli Defense Force. The title of the article is a clickable link to the video. Here's the article:

Video of Hamas kidnapping children for use as human shields
Who is violating international law? Who has raped the Geneva Convention? This video will answer that question beyond any shadow of a doubt.
And ask yourself this question: how frickin' hard would it be for CNN and The New York Times to report this kind of stuff, which has gone on for years? And since they don't report it, what is their real agenda?
Update: Residents of a Gaza neighborhood confirm that Hamas militants opened fire from the cover of a U.N. school where hundreds of Palestinians had sought refuge.
Update II: Video of Hamas officials calling on children to form human shields.
Our mainstream media continues to portray the Palestinians as a poor, downtrodden people oppressed by the cruel Israeli government. After all, all Israel has to do to end this is give them the land they want, right? WRONG! Israel already tried that by offering the Palestinians 100% of the land they wanted years ago. The Palestinians showed their true agenda by refusing. It's not about the land. It's about the total destruction of Israel. Nothing more.
Thanks for sharing this, Carolyn!
