Sorry Wocky. I'd like to believe that, given better weapons, Hamas would just precision target IDF compounds. But I live in the real world, and I know that wouldn't be the case. I would say they're brought up for both reasons. The difference is that I don't think anyone here would dispute that the Western media is biased towards Israel in their coverage. So there's not really a point to bringing up those statistics for that purpose in this discussion. There is, however, a desire on the part of some to paint a lopsided and intellectually dishonest picture of which side has worse tactics.
