Palestine in the wrong in the ongoing crisis

A recent writer asserted that the people of Gaza are showing "dignity through resistance" when they launch hundreds of rockets into Israel on a daily basis. Their elected leaders, Hamas, choose to do this from school yards, mosques, day care centers, etc., knowing that the hand wringers in the West will predictably blame Israel for responding. As columnist Charles Krauthammer said, "Israel uses rockets to protect its people while Hamas uses people to protect its rockets." Instead of using the substantial aid they receive to help their people, the Palestinians build tunnels and buy weapons.
