    the ideals of the idf are the defence of the state of israel. the use of the army as an add on to the police may well be regretable but a ncessary evil. with regards to the targeting killings - we live in a new era of warfare where the day of huge set piece battles is possibly fading very fast with the advent of urban warfare and lets look at gaza and iraq as examples we and the usa are not fighting regular troops who can be readily identified - we are fighting armed militias who find it easier not to be recognised. The idf has the advantage the americans lack and that is we know our enemy well - the americans are fighting blind we (and i agree with the tactics) pick of the leadership and disrupt all the time their ability to roam at will with regards to the morality issues that urban warfare is bringing this is for the future as this new dawn brigns with it a radical new thinking how to create within your enemy a fear - the same fear that a regular infantry man feels when he is under attack. finally i read my history and wonder how you can lecture us - the dutch worked well with the nazis and colonised many areas of this little earth my ancestors having been evicted from spain went to holland seeking sanctuary and where then evicted again we jews are cursed by having people from other lands who like the camel in the desert fail to see their hump. dont strain your neck bm
