Sderot cinema

Sderot cinema is a name given to a picture of gatherings at a hill in the Wikipedia:Israeli village Wikipedia:Sderot, where the locals gathered to watch the bombardment of the Wikipedia:Gaza strip[1] while eating Wikipedia:popcorn[2] and smoking Wikipedia:hookahs and cheering when the bombs struck Gaza.[3][4][5][6] The name was coined by a Danish journalist who snapped a photo of it and posted it on Wikipedia:Twitter.[7][8][9][10] Similar events happened during the 2009 Wikipedia:Operation Cast Lead,[11] which some disapprovers made rename Parash Hill into "Hill of Shame".[12]

Sderot residents have complained about the media portrayal.[13] Missile fire on Sderot began in 2001, and since then over 10,000 rockets have been fired at the city.[14] Marc Goldberg and other apologists would have it that the attacks are directed at Hamas and even their rockets,[15] and and that consequently, the jubilant response to bombing is justified.

Israel criticizes Hamas for using "human shields", in response to criticism of its attacks on civilians. This would be valid, if Israel did not actually attack the humans, both because there is no moral superiority in killing a shield and then blaming the enemy for using it, and because Hamas cannot very well be expected to find an advantage in using humans to hide behind, if Israel is just going to kill them anyway.
