well you see human nature is a funny thing especially during a war time. According to Sigmund Freud, man becomes a savage. so in the same analogy, when they are told that Arabs are just bunch of animals and deserve no respect,they have no compassion for them anymore. That's what happens when you completely dehumanize a group of people. So alive or death, they have no value to their eyes...it's a very sad thing because this is not the first time a group of people was discriminated in human history but i guess we human being don't learn from our mistakes. We can be incredibly intelligent yet unbelievably ignorant..."Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself."
