Rice: "It's Hard for Israel to Spare Civilians"

The Age, January 10, 2009 - US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says "it's hard" for Israeli troops to shield civilians in Gaza because the area is so densely populated and Hamas uses people as human shields....

Rice repeated the reasons for the US abstention at the United Nations on Thursday.

"The US abstention was principally because we believe it would have been useful to have a little bit more time for the Mubarak initiative to mature," she said.
