OPINION: Our hearts go out to all involved in the current Israeli-Gazan crisis, it is heart breaking.

Our thoughts are especially for the Palestinian children cynically being used with their families as humans shields and physiologically abused by Hamas whose charter does not allow for any negotiated settlement with the Israelis, but rather calls for the total destruction of the Jewish state.

To poison the minds of innocent children as Hamas does and as occurred during the Nazi regime is a crime against humanity.

This is an appropriate time to remember what Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said: ''We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.''
