This editorial in the Israeli daily, “The Haaretz,” is a poignant look at many of the 92 deaths of Palestinian kids killed by the Israeli Defense Forces during 5767 on the Hebrew calendar (Sept. to Sept. 2006-07).
What sort of an alternate reality created by the mind control police does it take for us not to be able to see who the bad guy is when 92 children are killed on one side and zero are killed on the other? Or when 457 total Palestinians are killed to 10 Israelis? Gideon Levy is a brave soul for writing the truth in the midst of a hostile and cowardly croud.
He apparently followed the IDF on every incursion they made into Palestine and wrote about the dead children he found. For example this story:
“The first of them was buried twice. Abdullah al-Zakh identified half of the body of his son Mahmoud, in the morgue refrigerator of Shifa Hospital in Gaza, by the boy’s belt and the socks on his feet. This was shortly before last Rosh Hashanah. The next day, when the Israel Defense Forces “successfully” completed Operation Locked Kindergarten, as it was called, leaving behind 22 dead and a razed neighborhood, and left Sajiyeh in Gaza, the bereaved father found the remaining parts of the body and brought them for a belated burial.”
“Mahmoud was 14 when he died. He was killed three days before the start of the school year. Thus we ushered in Rosh Hashanah 5767. In Shifa we saw children whose legs were amputated, who were paralyzed or on respirators. Families were killed in their sleep, or while riding on donkeys, or working in the fields. Operation Locked Kindergarten and Operation Summer Rains. Remember? Five children were killed in the first operation, with the dreadful name. For a week, the people of Sajiyeh lived in fear the likes of which Sderot residents have never experienced – not to belittle their anxiety, that is.”
