War can’t bring security for Israelis | Expresso – Portugal


The Israeli military is clearly going too far in the Gaza Strip, criticises political philosopher Kenneth Wain in the Times of Malta:

“The excuse that Hamas is using civilians as ‘human shields’ can never justify the indiscriminate massacre of the men, women, elderly and children of Gaza, the patients in the hospitals and so on. … Being used as human shields doesn’t strip a people of their humanity, it doesn’t turn them into objects or legitimate targets. On the contrary, it qualifies them more strongly for the protection of their human rights. It obliges the exercise of the greatest caution to minimise the risks to their lives and limbs.”
