Israel’s Channel 2 has reported that combat pilots are frustrated that they are not allowed to execute support fire for our forces on the ground for ‘fear of harming civilians’. If this report is true, it is an ethical outrage.
Our soldiers are the only innocents in Gaza. Under no circumstances should they be killed because of false morality that prefers to protect enemy civilians. One hair on the head of an Israeli soldier is more precious than the entire Gazan populace, which elected the Hamas and supports and encourages anyone who murders Israelis.
The only ethical demand right now is to stand behind our soldiers and give them the moral support to fight an all out war against our enemies – without endangering themselves or the Israeli civilians they are defending.
If the IDF would adopt this method of action, much blood would be saved – for both sides.
