Israel warned civilians to leave targeted areas

To the extent that there are civilian casualties in Gaza, as we say in Hebrew "damam b'rosham" (their blood is on their own heads). Because - surprise, surprise, surprise - Israel warned them to leave the areas around the buildings that were targeted (Hat Tip: Powerline).

Occasionally the truth bubbles up through the muck. Buried in the initial AP story by Ibrahim Barzak and Amy Teibel on Israel's offensive was this illuminating nugget:

Militants often operate against Israel from civilian areas. Late Saturday, thousands of Gazans received Arabic-language cell-phone messages from the Israeli military, urging them to leave homes where militants might have stashed weapons.

If I was an Israeli Sir Arthur Harris, I would have given no warning. The enemy deserves his fate and must be pitilessly wiped out and all who belong to him must be proscribed. Its also a biblical teaching by the way. The words the Prophet Samuel said to King Saul are particularly instructive in this regard.
