As you read through this document you will note that there are many statements example, “they did use Palestinians as Human Shield’s”, something the Leaders of Israel denied was happening. Apparently it was a pretty standard procedure.
There are many things that happened, that were denied by their leaders.
Seems the Leaders of the Israel were not honest with the public or the world. This in my opinion create much mistrust in anything they say.
So we should believe what they say “Because”?
As you read it you find there were little guidelines for soldiers to follow. There was little clarity of what to do or what not to. The statement “I don’t know” is very prevalent.
The one thing a few noted was the massive destruction and deaths, which in their opinion was not nessesary.
One was to skill anyone who was suspitious. If you bent down, or had a cell phone, are two examples. Just walking around could get you shot.
If you didn’t like the look of a home just destroy it.
One soldier said he just want to forget it all. Assuming everything will be fine now they are out of there. Nightmares of course will occur, memories cannot be erased. The after math will unfold in time as all who were there will experience.
Many were confused. They just didn’t know. Seems to me these soldiers were left in the dark about many things.
“You feel like an infantile little kid with a magnifying glass looking at ants, burning them.”
Fifty-four testimonies of Israeli combat soldiers who participated in Operation Cast Lead reveal gaps between the reports given by the army following January’s events; the needless destruction of houses; firing phosphorous in populated areas and an atmosphere that encouraged shooting anywhere.
One hears about Antisemite all the time, but in actual fact, if you look in a dictionary just about anywhere the actual meaning is far greater then what most realize.
A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East and Northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians, Ethiopians, Hebrews, Phoenicians, Jews or a Bible descendant of Shem.
The Jewish people are among the above group, but all of the above are Semite.
So to all who have use “antisemitism“, in any form have been terribly misguided.
