it seems perhaps that you know the not-so-esteemed ben jabo has been idf and proud israeli so full of hate that he cannot see... your analysis of the idf is keen the destruction and death it wreaks an entity to itself that pays no heed to humanitarian law and basic decency ben is so entangled in zionist views that he's unable to see the truth instead he blames it all on the news and claims that the world is anti-jew... funny thing is though... there are many jews...both in israel and the world at large...and even within the idf...who see the things he cannot see...and decry the deeds he calls "needs"...and who speak out against the idf's oppressive treatment and unfettered killing of palestinians which he calls "self defense". but ben will never fathom the difference...nor will his bloodlust be quenched...until his mind opens to the truth that in fact exists. so the atrocities you mention in these posts; he'll call "self defense".
