Israel's president on the subject of civilians in Gaza is: "What civilians? I don't see any civilians?"

It's just frustrating that after all the equipment, intel and training we provide for Israel's Defense Forces they still hosed everything up and now Palestinians are the ones paying most of the price.

Sadly this is just how a lot of history works.

For a historical example not tied up in recent history, you can consider Pearl Harbor. US intelligence knew that Japan was preparing for a massive strike against American holdings, and the US military had begun making preparations for such an attack. That the Japanese offensive was coming, was foreseen and acted on in places that the US then deemed likely to be attacked like the Philippines. What was not anticipated was the sheer scale and widely dispersed nature of the offensive, which lead American planners to think they would have more time and resources to react to the attack than they wound up having, and Pearl Harbor itself was thought immune to torpedo bomber attack because of the shallowness of the waters - and the American intelligence did not know that the Japanese had invented a way to get air-dropped torpedoes to work in such shallow waters.

It's not that the Americans didn't know an attack was coming, they did. They just significantly underestimated the scope of the attack and Japan's innovations that let them strike at targets previously thought unassailable.

I wouldn't be surprised if October 7 ends up with a similar sort of analysis.

So who had 'IDF desecrates graveyards where Palestinians are buried, avoiding those where non-Palestinians are buried' on their bingo card?

Meanwhile, in events sure to not bother anyone in Israel, the Israeli government is moving ahead to include a major ultra-orthodox sect into the draft when previously they've been exempt.

UN report has concluded that the Israeli military is consciously employing sexual violence against Palestinian civilians as established procedures.
