15-Nov-12: Getting the message out to the innocent victims

As massive as the fighting is, the count of dead on the Palestinian Arab side has three, perhaps two, civilians. Let's hope the effectiveness of the Israeli fighters continues at that exemplary level. Let's also hope some of the irresponsible reporting emanating from such luminaries as Wyre Davies of the BBC who tweeted this a little earlier this morning
@WyreDavies: In this "limited operation" at least 13 #Palestinians and 3 #Israelishave been killed - nearly all civilians. #Gaza
In reality, as distinct from the ideology-driven distortions of reporters like Davies, most of the Gazan dead (seven at least, out of a total of eleven dead which is the media figure now being quoted everywhere) are acknowledged terrorists. Perhaps the confusion comes from the way the BBC normally calls them militants; in Gaza, they are all martyrs. But terror is what they do, and terror is what brought their lives to an untimely end.

The fresh screen shot image from our computer (below) shows an Israeli aircraft dropping leaflets over Gaza this morning.

This illustrates what we wrote in an earlier post [here] this morning. 
The IDF via its air force has been distributing Arabic-language leaflets over Gaza this morning warning residents to keep far away from terrorist bases and weapons depots (the locals know exactly where they are). The message which is echoed by ordinary Israelis is that Palestinian Arab civilians, even those who hate us, are not the targets of the Israeli actions.
