I may be dumb or stupid, but I meant my question in complete earnestness.

I'm trying to understand what a country is to do when they were attacked, and the enemy is deliberately hiding behind many human shields. It is not something that to my knowledge there is any precedent for. I want to know if a country is required to just give up if the enemy terrorist governments is hiding behind their citizens?

I mean this in all seriousness. I'm not sure why you are getting offended.

What kind of animal do you think I am that I would ever think this or felt this was ok: "should the terrorists have immunity and be allowed to continue to slaughter Israeli children?"

I didn't mean that you think it's okay. I was saying that IF they should be allowed to live, they would eventually continue to slaughter Israeli children.

According to polling from Cygnal, on the question of whether the Hamas attacks on Israel were justified, 6.8% of Americans strongly agree, while 18.4 percent somewhat agree. (Among Muslim Americans, 28.2% strongly agree and 29.3% somewhat agree.)

https://www.cygn.al/new-national-poll-muslim-americans-say-hamas-was-justified-in-attacking-israel-majority-of-americans-say-iran-should-be-held-accountable-majority-support-israels-right-to-self-defense/

I fear we have finally deciphered the desires of those barking the utterly mystifying and complex cries of "from the river to the sea Palestine will be free" and "intifada intifada."

There's a bunch of other interesting and enlightening results in that poll.

I am sorry to hear that CV. I have started to see a pattern in the way you feel. You are highly sensitive when the discussion here surrounds civilian children casualties. I commend you for that. We should perhaps be more careful the way we write. You also seem to have the opinion that all children are considered innocent. I politely disagree on that last point. Have a nice night.

NYT reporter resigns over policy towards covering war in Gaza
Jasmine Hughes, who worked for the Times, claims that the paper's policy is overly biased in favor of Israel.

Letís say terrorists barricaded themselves with the hostages in a building and were using the building as a launching site. Would it be ok to bomb the building, or should they be given immunity?

1 hurt in anti-tank missile attack on Kibbutz Yiftah
IDF intercepts drone heading to Israel while still in Lebanese airspace.
Israel National News
Nov 5, 2023, 2:30 PM (GMT+2)
Ayal Margolin/Flash90

An anti-tank missile fired by terrorists in Lebanon struck a vehicle in Kibbutz Yiftah in northern Israel this afternoon (Sunday).

At least one person was injured in the attack.

The IDF responded to the anti-tank missile attack with artillery fire.

Earlier, a UAV was identified flying from deep inside Lebanon toward Israel. The UAV was tracked by detection and control systems and was successfully intercepted by the IDF Aerial Defense Array over Lebanon.

In addition, earlier today, several launches from Lebanon to Avivim in northern Israel and a fire toward the area of Malkia in northern Israel were identified.

The IDF responded with artillery fire toward the sources of the fire.

The Hezbollah terrorist organization announced that two of its operatives have been killed in Israeli retaliatory strikes, bringing the number of Hezbollah terrorists killed since the start of the war with Hamas to 60.

You're asking a logical fallacy, not a fair question.
