Palestinian Gunman Kills 8 Students

When the entire world (except for the US) has already publicly stated that Israel's disproportionate killing of the Palestinians in Gaza is immoral, excessive, and deplorable, acts in retaliation by this gunman really make one aggressively question the politics of killing civilians deliberately. There can be no excuse for that, these students do not deserve to die because their government is immoral and cannot follow international laws.

Acts like this also force disinterested 3rd parties to re-think their moral support for the Palestinians, even if it is the act of one crazed gunman versus the orchestrated acts of an entire military via their government-directed policies.

If one has a problem with the military occupation, which is certainly understandable, then take the fight to the military that occupies, but don't target civilians. Killing civilians deliberately transforms a justifiable resistance movement into an ugly terrorist tactic.
