Oh Jennifer this is not old news. Many Israelis have known about these atrocities. Personally I have family members who in the Sinai campaign of 1973 and can confirm these events. Unlike ignoramoses such as yourself, hate blinds you. Do you really think that if Israel exposed these events the world would care. Im sure the world knows, the UN, Red Cross etc.. But I hate to say it, Jews and Arabs are held to a different standard. Its almost an accepted fact the world will accept such Arab behavior. Israel at that time was more concerned about healing her nation rather than launch a fruitless worldwide campaign to expose these atrocities. The allegations against Israeli atrocities should be investigated but for now should be taken with a grain of salt. One could ask the same question? Why now is Egypt launching such allegations. C'mon its been almost 40 yrs!
