Israel asks Europe: What would you do?

The Israeli military has tweeted a picture of the UK's Houses of Parliament, which appear to be under attack from a stream of rockets.
The post seems to be in response to those who have criticised Israel's military assault on the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
The photo-shopped image, published today on the official Twitter feed of the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF), asks: “What if they were attacking your home?”
Israeli leaders say their current ground operation is designed to stop Hamas rocket fire from the territory, but there have been accusations that its military chiefs are using disproportionate levels of force.
The death toll in the two-week conflict today reached over 500.
The vast majority of the casualties have been Palestinians, while scores of children have also been killed.
Israeli officials say 18 soldiers have been killed along with two civilians.
