Israel troops admit Gaza abuses


news.bbc.co.uk

"[The testimonies] conveyed an atmosphere in which one feels entitled to use unrestricted force against Palestinians," academy director Dany Zamir told public radio.

Heavy civilian casualties during the three-week operation which ended in the blockaded coastal strip on 18 January provoked an international outcry.

Correspondents say the testimonies undermine Israel's claims that troops took care to protect non-combatants and accusations that Hamas militants were responsible for putting civilians into harm's way.

The deliberate targetting of civilians was something that was vehemently denied by both the israeli authorities and their supporters.

However, those denies are hollow in the light of the testimony given by soldiers to an Israeli military college.

Testimony includes soldiers who saw a high number of Rabbi's, both military and non military who were distributing literature calling this a holy war where non gentiles were to be uprooted if they interfered with this "re-conquering the Holy Land."

If ever there was any doubt about the deliberate targetting of civilians, this must surely put that to rest.

It seems clearer than ever that war crimes were committed with the (at least) tacit approval of the Israeli government and religious leaders.

You dang american's sit there and question your leader when he makes a decision. so far the decision to step back from isreal and seek a greater resolution is appearing to be a good one.

but hey you guys can take the ShizzA out of that guy all you want.

More from the article:

In another cited case, a commander ordered troops to kill an elderly woman walking on a road, even though she was easily identifiable and clearly not a threat.

Testimonies, which were given by combat pilots and infantry soldiers, also included allegations of unnecessary destruction of Palestinian property.

One non-commissioned officer related at the seminar that an old woman crossing a main road was shot by soldiers.

"I don't know whether she was suspicious, not suspicious, I don't know her story… I do know that my officer sent people to the roof in order to take her out… It was cold-blooded murder," he said.

Straight from the horses mouth - cold blooded murder.

It's not enough to target & kill innocent women and children, but in the Israel army, you're not considered man enough until you've bragged about it. Sickos!!!
Time for the world to tell the Israeli government where to get off.

Amazingly even in light of so many of these disturbing revelations, the Israel propaganda machine will some how spin this in a way that will appear all to justifiable to all to many people.

The politics of pseudo religion and pseudo democracy seems to discolor human compassion, empathy and reason all too easily.

In a region of the world where the enemy of my enemy is my friend, it’s little wonder Israelis and Jews and Zionists around the world were caught dancing jigs on September 11, 2001.
