Take a close look at this: specifically this quote:
The return fire set off multiple explosions that killed 34 and injured dozens more, according to Palestinian medics.
In other words, the return fire ignited munitions that were being stored at an elementary school, and the medics were not afraid to admit that "their" side was doing so. In other words, they know that nobody in the media or the diplomatic community would call them on it. Worse yet; the school is owned and operated by the U.N., which also apparently did nothing to prevent this.
Need more reasons to stop funding the United Nations and evict this terrorist organization from Turtle Bay? I don't. Civilized people do not use schools for storing ammunition or otherwise waging war.
This is, by the way, at least the second U.N. sponsored school used for this purpose, and apparently at least one mosque has been used for this purpose as well--Anti-Strib links a video that shows explosions continuing for at least a minute.
Again, it might do a world of good if U.S. diplomats reminded the world that civilized people do not put women and children in harm's way for this purpose.
Update: it turns out that these schools have been used for shelling Israel for over a year. Israel submitted a protest to the United Nations that far back when they realized what was going on. Time to de-fund the United Nations? You bet.
