Plus: more crimes against humanity, paid for by my tax dollars - maybe I'll just stop making money for a while, until I get drafted to help out more directly:
United Nations officials estimate that the armoured bulldozers of Israel have flattened more than 80 buildings in the Rafah refugee camp in the past days, leaving about 1,100 Palestinians homeless. ...
Israel's top general, Moshe Yaalon, has told the Israeli cabinet that "hundreds of houses have been marked for destruction."
These hundreds will add to the estimated 1,218 Palestinian homes which have been crushed along the Gaza-Egypt border since the start of the Palestinian uprising in September 2000. For operational reasons.
Since this time, some 257 Palestinians are thought to have been killed in the area. This number includes women, children and teenagers. Some simply crushed in their homes when the bulldozers come. But this is a trouble hotspot – after all, the Israeli army says that 10 soldiers have been killed here over the same period.
As if Gaza wasn't enough of a living hell to begin with. For operational reasons.
Also, a friend of mine was in the West Bank recently, showing up on the day Yassin was assassinated. Turns out it was a fine time for an atheist American Jew to go sight seeing. He met some of God's chosen people and some rather more secular sorts, but not one was humane enough to give him a haircut.
