    "If you can show me just instance of an Israeli child or woman wearing a bomb belt and blowing themselves up I would like to know about it---Don`t forget, just one ISRAELI human bomb to satisfy my curiousity---Not military, just civilians" I know very well that no Israeli civilian has been a suicide bomber. I also know that this is a Muslim idea...even the IRA never did that while bombing London. But I don't think that gives an army from a civilized democracy the right to do likewise. The IDF did use this "neighbor policy" until the Israeli High Court banned it in 2005. If it is acceptable to Israel to use it, why did the Israeli High Court ban it? This officer being censured would be receiving a courtmartial and jail time if he committed a similar offense in the American army, I'm quite sure.
