A good character is one that reaches its desired effect.
If that effect is to draw in a deep hatred from the audience, so be it. There have been multiple times where I have hated a character so much that I’ve wanted to reach into the medium and strangle them with my own hands.

Israel Strikes Fuel Tanks at Gaza's Only Power Plant - NBC News -
The fuel tanks at Gaza’s only power plant came under attack early Tuesday, threatening to deepen an already dire humanitarian situation.
The attack came hours after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned in a televised speech of a “prolonged” campaign in Gaza against Hamas. Israel carried out more than 70 strikes overnight - one of the biggest bombardments in the nearly month-long campaign. A Palestinian health official told The Associated Press that at least 100 Palestinians were killed in Israeli airstrikes and tank shelling on Tuesday.

"Stop pretending the US is an uninvolved, helpless party in the Israeli assault on Gaza. The Obama administration’s unstinting financial, military and diplomatic support for Israel is a key enabling force in the conflict." .. (from this article)
In recent weeks I was on the border of Gaza and getting reports from soldiers in the Gaza Strip who leak information out to me. I am in the process of publication of two big stories in major U.S. newspapers, but there are some things I can share with you right now: Soldiers in two different units inside Gaza leaked information about the murdering of Palestinians by sniper fire in Shuja’iyya neighborhood as punishment for the death of soldiers in their units. After the shooting on the Israeli armored personnel carriers, which killed seven soldiers of the Golani Brigade, the Israeli army carried out a massacre in Shuja’iyya neighborhood. A day after the massacre, many Palestinians came to search for their relatives and their families in the rubble. In one of the videos uploaded to YouTube, a young Palestinian man calls the names of his family and looking for them between the ruins when he is suddenly shot at in his chest and falls down. A few seconds after that, there are two additional shootings from snipers into his body, killing him instantly. Since the video was released, there was no official response from the IDF spokesperson. Today I can report that the official command that was handed down to the soldiers in Shujaiyya was to capture Palestinian homes as outposts. From these posts, the soldiers drew an imaginary red line, and amongst themselves decided to shoot to death anyone who crosses it. Anyone crossing the line was defined as a threat to their outposts, and was thus deemed a legitimate target. This was the official reasoning inside the units. I was told that the unofficial reason was to enable the soldiers to take out their frustrations and pain at losing their fellow soldiers (something that for years the IDF has not faced during its operations in Gaza and the West Bank), out on the Palestinian refugees in the neighborhood. Under the pretext of the so-called “security threat” soldiers were directed to carry out a pre-planned attack of revenge on Palestinian civilians. These stories join many other similar ones that Amira Hass and I investigated in Operation Cast Lead. The death toll that continues to rise is steadily reaching the numbers of the massacre of 2009.
More than 1,100 have been killed in Gaza, at least 80 percent of them civilians. Today it is cleared for publication that at least 4 soldiers were killed by a rocket in a gathering area outside of Gaza, and another soldier was killed in Gaza. They join 43 soldiers that have already been killed. We know that more acts of revenge will come soon and it is important that we not stay silent. This is the time to take to the streets and to social media. Demand from your representative wherever you are to stop supporting this massacre and to immediately boycott the state of Israel until the occupation ends, the blockade is lifted and Palestinians will be free. We all want to be in the right place at the right time when history knocks on our door, and history is knocking in Gaza right now. You need to decide on which side you want to go down in history. — Eran Efrati (via momo33me)
10 children killed as bombs hit Gaza playground, hospital -
Israeli forces on Monday bombed al-Shifa hospital and a park near the beach in Gaza City, killing at least 10 children on the first day of the Eid al-Fitr holiday, medics said.
The strike on al-Shifa Hospital, which is the main hospital in the besieged coastal enclave, hit the outpatient clinic, while the targeted park was located beside the al-Shati refugee camp.
Director of reception at al-Shifa Hospital Ayman al-Sahbani said that a total of 10 children’s bodies had arrived at the hospital as a result of the two strikes.
The Israeli army, however, said that the deaths were a result of “failed rocket attacks” launched by Gaza-based militant groups.
Thousands of Palestinians have taken refuge in the al-Shifa Hospital, as 130,000 have fled their homes as Israeli authorities declared more than 43 percent of the Gaza Strip off-limits to civilians and destroyed more than 2,000 homes in recent weeks.
Initial reports suggested that three of the dead came from a drone strike on the clinic, while seven were killed in the attack on the park. Dozens more were injured.
Israeli shelling killed two Palestinians in Jabaliya earlier on Monday amid a relative lull in fighting compared to previous days.
Another Palestinian, meanwhile, succumbed to his wounds, while seven bodies were recovered in Khuzaa in the eastern Gaza Strip as medical teams took advantage of the calm to retrieve bodies from the rubble of the heavily bombarded neighborhood.
The attacks came a day after Palestinian militants announced a 24-hour ceasefire beginning Sunday at 2 p.m. Israel refused to officially accept the ceasefire, but officials said they would restrain attacks to “retaliation” to Palestinian attacks.
Several rockets were fired on Monday into Israel, causing no damage or injuries.
Monday’s attacks brought the total Palestinian death toll to 1,055, with more than 6,200 injured.
The Israeli army says at least 43 Israeli soldiers have been killed in clashes with Palestinian militants in the same time, while three civilians have died in rocket attacks on Israel.

Israel Creates ‘No Man’s Land’ in Gaza, Shrinking Strip by 40 Percent - The Daily Beast -
BEIT HANOUN, Gaza — This narrow strip of land that used to be called “the Gaza Strip,” already one of the more densely populated places on earth, is growing dramatically smaller. The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the three-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.
