Ethnic cleansing claim is not rooted in reality

In the letter, “U.S. should be outraged over Israeli self-defense,” the writer falsely accuses Israel of “outright ethnic cleansing.” If his claims are true, then all of the talk about Israel having a superior military force must therefore be false.

Almost 2,000 rockets have hit buildings in Gaza. If about 200 people have been killed, the genocide attempt is truly inept. Perhaps the Israeli military should be told that warning civilians to leave buildings before targets are hit is not an effective way to wipe out a people. If only Hamas could be as considerate.
