Zenit: Immoral Idiots


Not all Palestinians are suicide terrorists, and not all Israelis are prepared to kill a Palestinian because he is Palestinian.

Strictly speaking, that's true I suppose. A bit more Arab spontaneous combustion in the privacy of their own homes, of course, would save a lot of problems. That said, it's just that most of the Judea / Samaria / Gaza Arabs do want to destroy Israel one way or another:

Fifty-nine percent of Palestinians believe that Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad should continue their armed struggle against Israel even if Israel leaves all of the West Bank and Gaza, including East Jerusalem, and a Palestinian state is created, a new survey shows.

Similarly, 80 percent of Palestinians say that, under those circumstances, the Palestinians should not give up the "right of return."

So the vast majority of Yesha Arabs remain committed to the destruction of the world's only Jewish State, either demographically or explosively. Great.

Until Zenit can produce evidence that a similar proportion of Israelis wants to go around indiscriminately killing Arabs, just for being Arabs, they stand accused of Jew-hatred.

On the other hand:

Purity of Arms - טוהר הנשק - "The IDF servicemen and women will use their weapons and force only for the purpose of their mission, only to the necessary extent and will maintain their humanity even during combat. IDF soldiers will not use their weapons and force to harm human beings who are not combatants or prisoners of war, and will do all in their power to avoid causing harm to their lives, bodies, dignity and property".

And:

Recently, a team of professors, commanders and former judges, led by Tel Aviv University head of Ethics cathedra, Professor Assa Kasher, developed a code of conduct which emphasizes the right behavior in low intensity warfare against terrorists, where soldiers must operate within a civilian population. Reserve units and regular units alike are taught the following eleven rules of conduct, which are an addition to the more general IDF Spirit:

Military action can only be taken against military targets.

The use of force must be proportional.

Soldiers may only use weaponry they were issued by the IDF.

Anyone who surrenders cannot be attacked.

Only those who are properly trained can interrogate prisoners.

Soldiers must accord dignity and respect to the Palestinian population and those arrested.

Soldiers must give appropriate medical care, when conditions allow, to oneself and one's enemy.

Pillaging is absolutely and totally illegal.

Soldiers must show proper respect for religious and cultural sites and artifacts.

Soldiers must protect international aid workers, including their property and vehicles.

Soldiers must report all violations of this code.

That's from this site.

"...not all Israelis are prepared to kill a Palestinian because he is Palestinian". Of course not. Obviously not. If they were, "Palestine" would have been de-populated of Arabs by about, say September 1967. Zenit is propagating Jew-hating lies. How else can this fairly be read?

But of course, the poor oppressed "stateless" (if you don't count Jordan, of course) Palestinians just want a State to call thier own. Herr Shickelgruber used to say something similar.

Not smoking, brushing and flossing regularly seems a good risk-free place to start if you ask me :)
