Men of war

Rime Allaf is a writer and commentator on the Middle East and is based in London.

As Israel prepares to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin, Allaf writes:

"For many Palestinians, Yitzhak Rabin is not remembered as a man of peace, but as the breaker of children's bones, amongst other equally correct terms."

In light of Israel's supposed overtures to peace, Haaretz discovers (with English translation):

"Fifteen of the 49 Palestinians killed by the IDF in the past three months have been unarmed civilians (a third of these have been youths.)"

Ant, have you come across the "Soldier Testimonies" section at the Alternative Information Center? If not, here is the link.

Thanks, hadn't seen that.
Similar to the Breaking the Silence testimony. More and more Israeli soldiers are speaking out. May the floodgates open.

Wonder when the Arabs will speak out. No need you say? Because they freely admit to the savagery they commit?

Or, Glenn, simply someone who wishes to introduce the topic of race to steer the discussion elsewhere.

Hardly. The discussion has always been the magnitude of the barbaric Arab attacks vs the precission of the IDF.

The only reason that tens of thousands of Israeli are not murdered every year is the ability of the IDF and Isralei police to stop Arab Terror attacks.

The reason for so many Arab civillian casualties is the use of human shields by those same Arab terrorists.
