Placing a distinctly military base in some proximity to civilians is not the same as using some poor shmoe's house as a weapon storage, and then instructing him and his family at gun point not to leave, even when the IDF is phoning in telling them they are about to bomb it.
Imperialist equivocation. The purpose of a facility can be made as distinct as you want, but then it's "ermagerd they were using human shields!", and you still have mass slaughter of civilians and imperialists washing their hands of it.
So what you have is a distinction without a difference. Israel also distinctly uses their airports for both civilian and military use, but we all know the "T" word would be used to describe any attack on such an airport. It's like "double tap" bombings - it's only terrorism if their guys are doing it.
