Very dramatic sarcasm, very well practice. The fact is that something like this happens on pretty much a weekly basis with the IDF.
And you of course have proof to back up this claim, right?
If not, whats the basis of the claim? This is how rational people think. If you're talking with rational people, you need evidence to support your
claim. And dependable evidence too. Not a mere word-of-mouth rumor, since conspiracy theories abound in the Muslim world like no place else (eliciting
a book from daniel pipes on this subject).
If they are pumping out this many problematic members than it is a problem with the IDF and it is systemic.
Funny how people like you jump from A to B with such alacrity. But where's the evidence for this?
Why don't we widen our scope to get a bigger picture, and possibly a plausible explanation for why you have this perception of the IDF being an
inveterate breaker of international law.
First, who controls the worlds oil? Mostly Arab Muslim countries. Do you know what kind of pressure OPEC and the Arab League put upon governments to
have them take a position on the Palestinian question? You're naive and live in a fantasy land if you think this is not how international politics
works. Nations pursue their own interests: oil is in their interest. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Kuwait, UAE, Libya, Nigeria, etc, all Arab countries, have
vast supplies of oil. In order to maintain contracts with these countries, there is a great deal of arm pulling.
So that explains the absolutely inordinate amount of attention Israel gets verses much greater human rights issues in Tibet (which plagues a
population many times larger than the Palestinians) - and why don't we here about it? Again, we see the power of economics on politics. China is too
big to be criticized; Israel is too weak, both politically and economically to offset the economic powers of OPEC and the Arab League. And Sudan? The
450,000 people murdered in that country over the last 10 or so years outnumbers the casualties of the Israel Palestinian conflict by a factor of 240.
Point being, it's politics, it's tripe, it's nonsense which isn't based in fact or reason, but pure and utter fanaticism, coming mostly from two
sides with political interests: Islamists and Arabists who refuse to tolerate the existence of a sovereign Jewish state in Dar Al Islam; and Leftists,
who would very much like to see the symbolic collapse of a country which symbolizes for them the Judeo-Christian world order.
