moral degradation happens when the side knows its doing wrong yet continues to keep doing it.
Its the 'fear of the Pharoh.' A tyrant is always worried of a backlash and by its behaviour which is influenced by that worry, it actually makes it
Someone like you gives me hope that there are people in Israel who still have morals.
Trust me on this one there are.
Unfortunately they are not the ones calling the shots.
The guys in charge have some kind of God complex at the moment
I realise you are trying to speak out against the brutality against children by Israeli authorities, so i hope this doesn't sound too harsh, it is
becoming increasingly prevalent among Israeli soldiers, probably influenced by propaganda from higher ups, to consider Palestinians as something less
than Human. Animals or sub-Humans would be a fair assesment of opinions i've noticed on video clips of Israeli soldiers i've seen.
Although, i hope you meant it as a simple idiom, but your phrase could be interpreted as evidence of similar lingering opinions, either conscious or
unconsious in yourself when you said;
A cornered animal is a dangerous animal. What can I say ? Where the hell did it all go wrong ?
I'd argue that reducing Children or anyone else to the status of below that of a Human being, even when making analogies etc. might be a contributary
factor in the de-humanising of Palestinian kids.
Jews know the wisdom of this better than many, or they should.
