The 'logic' of Israel-apologists

Israel-apologists say that Israel is not at fault for any of the civilian deaths it has caused when it bombs residential areas.

They say that it is Hezbollah's fault for 'hiding among civilians'.

This is their 'logic'.

Let's use their 'logic' and apply it to the other side of the equation, as appalling as that may be.

How many Israelis are in the IDF? What percentage of the population? Israelis are conscripted into the army, in other words, drafted. So, 1/3 of the population is in the IDF.

Do those IDF ALWAYS wear their uniform? Of course not.

So, this 'citizen army' mingles with the civilians, yes?

When Hezbollah fires rockets into Israel and kills Israeli civilians, then according to the 'logic' of Israel-supporters, it's the IDF's fault for 'hiding amongst the civilians'.

To even suggest such a thing would have the Israel-apologists all up in arms, yet, they use this same 'logic' to excuse Israel of its killing of civilians.
