There is simply no moral equivalence between Israel and Hamas — the pro-Palestinian terror group that enjoys popular support in the Arab world.
Doubling as a political party and as a terrorist cell, Hamas frequently launches rockets and other explosive devices into Israel’s borders. The organization’s leader is on the record stating that the intent behind many violent demonstrations is to kill Jews and damage their property. This is why it is so perplexing when the mainstream media here in the United States appears to suggest that they are victims when the Israeli Defense Force does what it can to defend its own borders.
This image succinctly explains the difference in how Israel and Hamas think and operate. It is not uncommon for Hamas militants to base themselves in tightly populated areas — knowing that the Israelis would be reluctant to use their military in its full capacity. This is because Israel governs from an incredibly pro-western perspective — a perspective that upholds the idea that children are not weapons of war.
Of course, Hamas counts on the death of children to sell their narrative to the press. By using innocent lives as human shields, the terror group guarantees itself support from multinational entities like the United Nations, and favorable coverage by western media.
