    "And offcourse you have proof that 50000 of the 56000 American servicemen killed in the Vietnam war were killed by friendly fire. PS Pat Tillman was opposed to the war in Iraq" Explain what relevance this has to do with the article we are now discussing? Because you aren't able to. Saying someone else is worse does not excuse Israel. How on earth can you believe it does? It's like saying, "I committed one murder, but he committed two. Punish him and let me go"....
