The master teaches well

Zionists claim that Israel is a moral state, an inspiration to the world – let’s put aside for a moment the call, made yesterday by Housing and Construction Minister Ze’ev Boim, to assassinate Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh; the actions of a rogue state. The utter destruction in Gaza shows, according to a writer from the Institute for National Security Studies, the ethical standards of the Jewish state:

Of course it must be regretted that women and children were killed. Nor am I glad about the killing of Hamas people – on such things the Holy One, blessed be He, has already said: “The work of my hands is drowning in the sea and you are chanting a song before me?” But the responsibility for all the killing and suffering is solely that of the aggressor, Hamas. No civilian who was harmed – even if because of a mistake – is weighing on the Israeli conscience. This is the truth that lets us walk with our heads high. There is no need to be alarmed by people for whom hypocrisy and mendacity are lights unto their feet. Their moral level is very far from ours.

The only people who may believe this are the Sri Lankan government, currently massacring Tamils in the country’s north-east, and claiming no civilians have been killed.

Israel must be so proud of its protege.
