The differentiation between Hamas and the IDF is leagues apart. The empathy the IDF shows for Palestinian civilians, whom Hamas completely ignores and even kills for simply taking aid meant for them, should be enough.

But the IDF does countless things to ensure innocents do not become a part of Hamas’s terror. The evacuation routes, constant flow of aid, personal texts, and phone calls announcing military moves are just the surface of the IDF’s preventive actions.

The IDF, of course, has never murdered, raped, mutilated, or kidnapped civilians, but we’re not mentioning that.
