What Israel Is Doing to Gaza Is a Choice

• Ron Paul Institute - Connor O'Keeffe

Sometimes you'll hear that the Israel Defense Force (IDF) is doing everything in its power—more than any other military in history—to avoid hurting civilians and that Hamas is responsible for any innocents who get killed because they are using them as human shields.
