Children are being slaughtered while we silently observe

Another day passes by, I wake up, drink my cup of coffee, have my shower, get dressed, go to work.
In another continent; another country, somewhere far away from home, scores of people are being killed. Children are assassinated in cold blood and there is nothing for someone so powerless like me to do.
In the past few days over a 100 people in Gaza have been killed by Israeli forces. Israel is defending itself, they tell me. But can someone explain to me how a 12 years old girl could have threatened the life of Israelis? Or was it Salsabeel Abu Jalhoum, the 21 months infant, that was the threat?
