18/02/09 ~~Déjà Vu~~Israel Does It Again

What does 2006 and 2009 have in common? Well if we are talking about Israel and its murdering ways, the two years have very much in common.

The one thing you can always count on with Israel is their view of Palestinians is nothing more than sheer hatred. The right wing Zionists would like nothing better than to ethnically cleanse those pesky Palestinians from their midst.

The striking fact that Israel shows no differentiation between combatants, civilian men, women and children should make those of us around the world with compassion and moralality speak out!

What I have seen around the blogosphere and in print in many pro-Israeli papers and blogs, is the hasbara, where they claim the IDF do not target innocent people and if they are killed it’s just a sad mistake. Which, I for one, would actually find quite amusing, if not for the sheer number of innocent dead, that is. So, what is it then? Either the IDF are the most inept army in the world, bumbling fools incapable of correctly identifying a legitimate target and then striking that legitimate target, or conversely, they are wilfully targeting innocent women and children. You can’t have it both ways.

You only need to look at the sheer numbers in order to find the answer to this question. Since the year 2000 there have been 123 Israeli children killed in the conflict, as opposed to 1487 Palestinian children killed by Israel. I want to CLEARLY point out to you that those aforementioned numbers DO NOT include the close to 400 children they just killed in under two months time!!

But again, this is not new for the IDF. You see, back in 2006 Israel was at it again, killing innocent women and children as the hid in the basement of their apartment complex in Lebanon.

So how many did they kill in 2006 during the Lebanon invasion??

Palestinian children killed=139
Israeli children killed=2

And here is one more to see. An Israeli tank targets children who were waving their hands at it.

Yeah, they are not targeting Children. Now, I have some lovely swap land to sell you………………..
