Israel Defense Force soul searching about Gaza

A squad leader said in the Haaretz investigation

You do not get the impression from the officers that there is any logic to it, but they won’t say anything. To write ‘death to the Arabs’ on the walls, to take family pictures and spit on them, just because you can. I think this is the main thing: To understand how much the IDF has fallen in the realm of ethics, really. It’s what I’ll remember the most.

These are horrors. Their unveiling cannot undo the slaughter of children or other crimes. Yet display on a stage of national conscience, and all that can follow from that, may yet be redemptive.

  1. Are you referring to the slaughter of children by the indiscriminent firing of rockets into Israel or the children who are forced to surround the evil in GAZA to keep them from being killed.

    WAR is hell!
