The most humane army in the world, the Israeli Defense Forces, actually warns people where upcoming attacks will occur, thereby losing the element of surprise and giving civilians (and terrorists) time to flee or prepare for attacks.
What response follows from this humanitarian gesture? Outrage. Here you have it from the Los Angeles Times. The Palestinians and their enablers in the world media consider everything the Israelis do as evil. When the world labels you the perpetual victim and you are taught to consider yourself a victim nothing will ever be good enough from your imagined oppressor. This ideology is not the best way to improve one's lot in life.
