Re: “Israeli strike leaves 11 dead” (TNT, 11-19).

Hamas’ tactics are brutal and criminal, yet The News Tribune chose to use this headline.

These terrorists use heavily populated areas like neighborhoods, schools and hospitals, then they themselves hide in bunkers underneath these areas to launch their missiles at populated areas in Israel. Hamas intentionally offers its own people as sacrifices so that when Israel retaliates, inept reporters and media like this newspaper print misleading headlines.

Hamas uses this tactic to gain sympathy. Congratulations, if that’s what you call it; you fell right in to the terrorists’ plots.
