Friendly Fire

Israel troops are so trigger happy that they are now shooting hostages!

Just imagine how many innocent Palestinians might have been killed so far !!

Israel’s chief of staff, Gen. Herzi Halevy confirmed that the three were waving a white flag. He said the soldiers’ actions were contrary to the military’s rules of engagement. “It is forbidden to shoot at those who raise a white flag and seek to surrender,” he said.

What he really needs to acknowledge, is that the IDF is loaded up with extremists, who are hell bent on killing as many Palestinians as they can. They used to ply their trade in the West Bank, but they now have a larger theater of operations, and an excuse.

They have never been disciplined, and they never will be.

Hamas is not the only party that's hell bent on indiscriminate killing.

@NorthwestI wouldnt have agreed with you a week ago, but reading about this and the catholic women killed has really set me off.

That’s what happens when you can’t tell who’s who when the enemy wears civilian clothing.

@Puppycat23 Yes,when your enemy is so cowardly and pathetic they dont wear recognisable uniforms,and using civilians as human shields is part of your military tactics,this sad thing will happen.

@wonkywinky the cowardly ones are the ones mistaking guys waiving a white flag as a terrorist and opening fire because they felt “threatened”.
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
@trollslayer I dare say Hamas are using white flags as cover to advance then open fire.
trollslayer · 46-50, M
They need to apologize to all they have called antisemites for suggesting they were shooting indiscriminately. Well, that is definitely true.

@trollslayer I’ve never seen that claim, or made it, and I’m pro-Israel.

Their credibility just went to zero. Netanyahu needs to resign, ASAP.

Are you familiar with the concept of war?
Basically one side will commit an aggressive act against another side.
Usually this elicits a similarly aggressive response from the other side.
This results in armed conflict,both sides attempting to kill as many of the other sideas possible,until one side has had enough and then tries to achieve a peaceful solution,but often one side will reject this solution and decide both sides can no longer co-exist.
In this instance,Hamas killers broke into the state of Israel,and began slaughtering Israeli citizens who were young women,men and even children.
Israel thus decided it cannot co-exist anymore with Hamas...the rest is history.
The moral is:Dont start a war against an enemy who is infinitely more militarily powerful than yourselves.

Theyve a right to protect their country, from foreign and domestic terrorists...
WandererTony · 56-60, M
@Kstrong By killing all and sundry? Wow
JSul3 · 70-79
@Kstrong I strongly suspect that were some of your loved ones killed in this manner, you would have a different opinion.
Kstrong · 56-60, F
@JSul3 no, have not lost anyone in this manner and if i had or do, i suppose i would hold a similar opinion, thanks for causing me to think on this.

It’s war. I think it was inevitable. I don’t see it as karma.
WandererTony · 56-60, M
@Bumbles No it’s not about Karma. Just concerned about how trigger happy they are in their Hamas hunt. The hostage shooting is reported. They cannot hide it. But how many Palestinians are gunned down in the name of suspected militants would go unreported.
Bumbles · 51-55, M
@WandererTony Fair enough…
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
@WandererTony If i was an Israeli soldier i would shoot anyone in my sights.The Palestinians should be keeping off the streets surely?
And their own soldiers too. That's what you get for shooting everything that moves.
wonkywinky · 51-55, M
But imagine how many guilty ones too!
trollslayer · 46-50, M
@wonkywinky let god sort them out

@trollslayer Its time to kick ass and chew bubble gum...
