The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.08:52 31.08.15 | 1 comments
Picture this; ' People, obviously civilians because of their lack of weapons and worried appearance, approach soldiers in a war zone. They are allowed to pass because, hey, they're unarmed. As soon as they get close, one of them detonates a vest and BOOM!' The result being that a couple of youngsters just out of their teens on their first tour of duty, get sent home with missing limbs or worse. Its a scenario that has happened several times and now fear & suspicion have set in and the IDF commanders instruct their subordinates accordingly. I'm not trying to debate the morality of the Israeli / Palestinian situation. Just trying to show how civilians that dont obey orders given by an armed soldier to halt, can get themselves killed. Hell, I would have stopped if that M16 were pointed at me. And you ?
