  •  Targeting children is inexcusable. (8+ / 0-)

    This is disgusting. It isn't self defense, it's targeting the most vulnerable parts of an occupied people. Each and every official responsible for the decision to do this should be tried in an international court, along with every single IDF soldier that participated.

    •  ALL of our Congress before the Hague? (2+ / 0-)

      I'd like to see that, but they're more than just responsible for this - they're rich, too.

      Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?

    •  In some sense, I suppose this is self-defense. (0+ / 0-)

      This is the mindset, the approach, and the actions that grow up when you as a nation are pushing an indefensible, unsustainable course of action that gradually paints yourself into a corner.

      Israel is infinitely superior in terms of physical power to the Palestinians, but it's stuff like this that leaves them at such a moral deficit that all that will in the end be cancelled out.

      I think that there are a number of Israeli politicians and soldiers who know this, and who (tragically) become even more outlandishly violent as the tipping point is approached.
