"Tonight We Kill, To Show How Peaceful We Are"
Benji Netanyahu: "They sanctify death, we sanctify life. They sanctify cruelty, and we mercy and compassion. That is the secret of our strength."

... and that, of course, is why we have to bomb Palestinians into the Stone Age.

This the kind of "logic" you used to see all the time from anti-Muslims in the U.S. "Islam isn't a pacifist religion like Christianity, so we Christians have to send the Air Force to kill the motherfuckers."

Lord knows who's responsible for the murder of Yifrach, Shaar and Frankel; Israel will attack Hamas because it feels like attacking Hamas (and any civilians that happen to be in the way). Then again, I'd say the government of Israel shares responsibility for their deaths, because those teenagers shouldn't have been in the West Bank in the first place. But that point of view isn't considered acceptable anymore.

Punishment of some via collective responsibility is an important step in dehumanising "the enemy".

I couldn't think of a better way to describe kidnapping and murdering 3 civilian teenagers, singing songs while killing them, while the nation celebrates the murder by passing out candy to kids and rioters throw stones at the ambulance retrieving the bodies--because of their government's policies.
