77. More words for you to learn the definition of - *ad hominem and rational*
Disagreeing with you isn't personally attacking you. You do really need to get a sense of perspective when it comes to the fact that yr opinions aren't facts...

1. I'm not at all sure what yr point is. There's no *official* HRW glossary, and one investigator not using the exact same definition as another in another country is not double-standards at all. Anyway, yr argument seems to be that you want to blame Hamas for basically all civilian deaths. That doesn't make sense seeing as how the IDF used Palestinian civilians as human shields. How does one lot apparently significantly contribute to deaths while the other lot doesn't?

2. No, what the Hamas official said doesn't make the police combatants. Please read the ICRC definition again and what the Hamas official said again, and you'll notice that according to the ICRC definition they weren't combatants at the time they were attacked....
