The left-wing Haaretz reports that one of the excuses Hamas had for firing form civilian areas was that it was "a narrow and tightly spaced urban area."When Hamas was confronted with that fact, they said that mistakes were made and lied that they tried to keep people out of the fighting. Is that why they wanted people to stay when Israel sent leaflets and telephone calls? As for the Gaza is "narrow and tightly spaced" excuse, here is one solution for Hamas: Don't fire rockets at Israel. But I will discuss Hamas's lame excuses and lies, even as the world is slowly, but surely, discovering what Hamas is all about.
