You are kidding, right? I get a right telling off just for not washing the dishes properly or forgetting to feed the rabbits, God knows what the world
would be like if you had Women in charge of Nations!
(Only kidding Ladies, look at Maggie..she was awesome!)
Anyhoo, as for the topic.
It would seem that a variety of witnesses have confirmed the same basic story, that of a group of Israeli soldiers sitting on a tank eating crisps,
who then turn on this group of women and children when they emerge from the house.
They were apparently no more than 15m away and were under no obvious threat, as demonstrated by their relaxed, crisp eating demeanour.
This, on the face of it, is a hideous murder. However, we all know the IDF child killers, at worst, get a few months in an Israeli prison and are then
sent back to their unit. More often, the incidents are glossed over and no-one is punised.
, I agree with you 100%. The Israelis seem utterly incapable of understanding the concept of a proportional response. Look at the recent
Gaza fighting and the 2006 Lebanon War.
I use it often, but their is a comparison of how this should go down. Look at how the UK behaved with the IRA.
Did we invade Eire with thousands of troops and tanks?
Did we bomb Dublin with aircraft?
Did we bulldoze houses in Cork?
Did we kill 100 Irish for every British citizen killed?
The disparity of forces between Israel and palestine is similiar to that between the UK and Eire. The UK could have obliterated Eire in a couple of
weeks and slaughtered thousands after every bomb that went off, but we didn't.
Quite how Israel thinks it is justified in this wanton destruction for the sake of a few bottle rockets going off, that prior to their incursion had
killed no-one, is beyond me.
