The right target

Guess which citizens of a supposedly enlightened nation are demanding the murder of democratically elected leaders of another nation:

The vast majority of Israelis believe the Jewish state should assassinate leaders of the governing Palestinian movement Hamas in response to the crisis in Gaza, a newspaper poll published on Friday showed.The survey in the Maariv daily showed 82 percent of Israelis favoured killing leaders of the Islamic militant group, whom Israel holds responsible for the abduction of a soldier on June 25 in a cross-border raid from Gaza and recent rocket attacks. Respondents were questioned on Wednesday, the day before Israeli tanks and troops pushed into northern Gaza, taking over areas Israel abandoned last year after 38 years of occupation.

Meanwhile, corporate interests are fuelling the occupation. Such institutions should be named and shamed in public.
