    If Israel claims to be a western style democracies, they should look to other western style democracies for clues to how to behave. Instead, Israel is constantly looking for the worst examples imaginable and using them as their standard of behavior. In spite of what other nations and groups do, I am a little surprised that Israel would choose to deal in dead bodies. On second thought, I don't think that it is possible to underestimate the moral behavior of Israel.
