What would you prefer instead:
a. IDF makes an incursion into Palestinian territory to arrest / deter rioters before the get to the fence line - much higher casualties likely, although you might like this as there would definitely be some who were IDF..
b. IDF waits until Palestinians cross the border before calling in required firepower (far more than was actually used, as the risk of breakout would be much greater, and they couldn't afford any leak through to civilian settlements).
c. IDF sit back and let the Palestinians through. Massacres of Israeli civilians commence, followed by wipe out of all Palestinians involved.
Now that truly is a selective crop of the situation. Lovely, lovely, lovely. What happened to the section going up the side? What was the view at the bottom of the berm? Where did all the vehicles go? And,oh, bless, it doesn't show the couple of generals they'd have been servicing.
One day, maybe, we'll be able to discuss Israel without somebody harking back to stuff that took place 74 yerars ago.
A Defence Attaché of my acquaint once told me that Israel has the greatest difficulty getting to grips with 'emerging nations' like Nigeria,Botswana, Zuid Efrika etc because they don't respond to the standard emotional blackmail habitually employed around the Shoah.
well I never...every day a school day..... did some reading the Cathars.
"Following their principles, Cathars could deduce that sexual intercourse between man and wife was more culpable than homosexual sex. (Catholic propaganda on this supposed Cathar proclivity gave us the word bugger, from Bougre, one of the many names for medieval Gnostic Dualists)"
The NI legal system is almost identical to England and Wales. The reason for the slightly changed Statute and Regulation titles, and the later implementation dates, is that the NI Civil Service takes a few weeks to biro ‘so it is’ at the end of every paragraph.
