Let's make them bomb the schools next!

Hamas has a history of putting bunkers in places where the repercussions for bombing are so great, any group with a conscience hesitates to take action.  So it should be unsurprising that their latest setup is to dig tunnels near and underneath UN buildings, including a UN school right on the Gaza-Israel border that was damaged when a tunnel collapsed underneath it.

A couple of thoughts...

When is the UN going to start acknowledging that Hamas is responsible for injuries and deaths resulting from putting women and children in the way?

Human casualties aside*, would it really be that awful if a bunch of UN buildings went away?

*Given that Hamas views human casualties as a wash at best and a bonus at worst (in normal moral terms, anyway - I think they would call the bonus a good thing), I think it's perfectly rational to have this discussion.
