    Let's examine: He lauds 'Soldiers Speak Out' for their brave defense of IDF actions in Cast Lead for which they will be warmly thanked by one and all especially those who command them and serve with them in the IDF. Whilst he condemns those souls from `Breaking the Silence` who have yet to ruin their lives and careers and the lives of their families by revealing their identities for daring to speak out against IDF actions in Cast Lead [and the OT's more generally]. He ignores the fact that the group has stated that witnesses will indeed reveal their identities if and only if an independent inquiry is undertaken and not an IDF whitewashing witch hunt.Never mind the details though, eh Peter? Is PSM credulous or just inept. I wonder.

It gives a whole new meaning to 'finding the feminine side' in the Israeli zoo that is the occupation: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3841480,00.html
