Crooks dressed in uniform

While countless international and Israeli human rights group discuss ways to pursue war crimes charges against the Jewish state (and Hamas), one reserve soldier has written to the people of Gaza with a heart-warming tale of love and care:

I spent many days in your home. You and your family’s presence was felt in every corner. I saw your family portraits on the wall, and I thought of my family. I saw your wife’s perfume bottles on the bureau, and I thought of my wife. I saw your children’s toys and their English language schoolbooks. I saw your personal computer and how you set up the modem and wireless phone next to the screen, just as I do.

I wanted you to know that despite the immense disorder you found in your house that was created during a search for explosives and tunnels (which were indeed found in other homes), we did our best to treat your possessions with respect.

This would be funny if it wasn’t so disgusting. Countless tales have emerged of Israeli soldiers causing carnage in Palestinian homes and writing offensive graffiti across walls.

The IDF isn’t an army; it’s a criminal rabble.
