MOST COMMENTED

"There was a power cut in Khan Yunis, so a lot of people came here where there's a generator and a screen."

-- Mohammed al-Aqad, who was at the Fun Time Beach cafe in the southern Gaza Strip, where residents gathered to watch the Argentina-Netherlands semifinal in the early hours of Thursday, when an Israeli missile struck, killing nine people and wounding 15. (AFP)

    How about an article about celebrations at the Fun Time Beach cafe a couple of weeks earlier to celebrate the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli boys who were looking forward to watching the World Cup?

    Boko Haram bombing and killing Nigerians gathered to watch the world cup is a terrorist act, but Israel bombing and killing Palestinians gathered to watch the world cup is OK with you, David?

    Any time people are killed for religion it is an offense against all. To try to white wash it in any way demeans you David. And if there was celebrations over the kidnapping and murder then those who celebrated also demeaned themselves in doing so. My sympathy goes to BOTH the young boys and the innocent people watching a soccer match and dying as a result of an Israeli missile. Both are acts of terrorism.

    Please stick to soccer and leave the politics alone. The quote you use is biased and unfounded.

    The only demeaning thing here is showing your ignorance of facts and history and the nature of the conflict in the Middle East. Israel has been on the receiving end of non-stop terrorist and missile attacks for years and has every right to defend itself. Any civilian casualties resulting from this is the responsibility of those who start the fire and then use women and children as human shields (something that is currently advertised as the preferred method for the population of Gaza on the Hamas website). I wonder what you would say if missiles were falling on New York City and Washington and Boston from, let's say, Mexico or Canada, and you would have to be running for bomb shelters multiple times a day. Would you expect your government to sit idly by? Shame on you for not willing to look behind the headlines for the facts.

    There is no justification whatsoever for the killing of innocent people. It's a terrorist act no matter who has done it.
