Tough time believing Israeli missiles could go astray

Dear editor,

While I have never condoned the indiscriminate launching of missiles from Palestine into Israel, I must say that I consider the deliberate targeting of hospitals within Gaza by Israel to be a crime against humanity and in definite breach of all the Geneva Conventions and the Red Cross Conventions.

I have heard that Israel says they were targeting something nearby the hospital but I believe this to be utter B.S.

Their technology is so sophisticated that they can hit the eye of a needle from a helicopter three kilometres in the sky.

The disproportionate application of arms where one side has stones and a few missiles that shoot who knows where, and the other has nuclear weapons at their disposal is totally unjustified.

If Israel ever wants peace, it needs to treat the Palestinians as people and stop maintaining Gaza as a huge prison cell.  Only by fairness can the fighting which was started back in the 1920s be stopped.
