Tonight I identified two more Hamas policemen, identified by the PCHR as "civilian," as being members of the Al Qassam Brigades (Hamas' "military wing." )
This brings the total number of Gaza policemen killed in Cast Lead who were also terrorists to 189.
The PCHR identified a total of 282 policemen in their English list of the dead, so this means that we have now proven that over two thirds of the Gaza policemen killed by Israel were terrorists.
The PCHR considers these people to be "civilian," and argued that very point to the UN fact-finding mission recently. But the fact that an overwhelming majority of them are admitted by Hamas to be members of the Al Qassam Brigades proves that, in Gaza, there is zero distinction between the police and the "militants."
The only conclusion you can come up with is that the entire Gaza police force is simply a front for the Hamas al-Qassam Brigades. As such, they are a legitimate military target.
Counting all the police, the other "civilians" killed who were members of terror groups and the "militants" that the PCHR counted, we have now identified, by name, that 647 of the people killed in Cast Lead were legitimate targets.
