Moral selectivity and business as usual yet again as Israel’s shelling of a residential area elicits nothing more than the usual slap on the wrist from the
useless buggers international community.
An IDF officer claimed that the deaths of some 18 people had been caused by an “error in the aiming devices” – Perhaps the same technical ‘glitch’ which manifested itself during Israel’s peregrination in Lebanon this summer. The glitch which mysteriously causes Israeli heavy artillery to be aimed at Arabs, usually of the civilian, female, and child variety.
It is crap like this which devalues the laws of armed conflict, and makes people want to punch me in the face when I insist that even in the face of such brutality there is still a place for human rights norms. So up yours Peretz, IDF and Olmert.
