Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Ten people are confirmed dead. The Jewish Telegraph Agency reports that most were children. The IDF launched separate attacks on the Shifa Hospital, the main hospital in Gaza City, as well as a park next to the Hospital. Witnesses report that an Israeli drone hit the Outpatient Clinic for the Hospital

The IDF claimed that it was not responsible for the attack on the Hospital unsurprisingly blaming it on Hamas.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Who targets a hospital and a park? Why? How can these be construed as legitimate targets?

I know the Israelis are denying any involvement, but I find that hard to believe. As soon as the IDF announces that it will investigate the incident, you know the cover-up is being executed.

Has the IDF ever found themselves culpable after one of these investigations? I think not. They just stonewall until the press loses interest - which is always too goddamn quick. The American press has the attention span of a two year old. The Israelis are masters at providing shiny objects to distract them.

Here is some great video of Hamas missiles being intercepted. That's a much better visual than some rubble around a Hospital and some bloody craters in a public park. What were those children doing in that park anyway? Were Hamas operatives hiding under the monkey bars, or the teeter-totter?

I guess the lesson is that parks and hospitals are dangerous places to be Palestinian, just like every other place in Gaza. I'm sick of this slaughter or innocents. I go back to the question I started with; "Who targets a hospital and a park?" What kind of person does this?

I know someone will argue that Hamas launches random missiles into Israel which might harm Israeli children, but in this case, and so many others, someone in an IDF uniform deliberately targeted a hospital and a park, for god;s sake!

How can they justify that? It is beyond my understanding
