Ok, so the latest tactic in the Palestinian territories is for terrorist groups to issue calls for "human shields" to come and protect their "warriors" in their residences, after Israel announces an imminent attack on the militant's home. As a result, you get shots like this:
Here's something interesting about this photo: Mohammed Salem feels so secure in knowing that Israel will not
attack a group of civilians, that he's placed himself on the roof with them
in the line of fire.
Ok, there are two things to take away from this scenario: First, the "militant" being targeted by Israel is, I guarantee
, nowhere near his house when these "human shields" come to defend him. Why risk his life, when he can risk the lives of dozens of civilians? And second, if Israel has the chance to strike dozens
of Palestinians, but chooses
not to, wouldn't that imply that they are not
a "murderous regime?"
Don't expect the press to pick up on that
storyline anytime soon. They're bound to continue representing the story in the same idiotic
"David vs. Goliath" manner as they have in the past, to nobody's
advantage. They'll never come around to speaking the truth
, which is that the "brave" Palestinian militants need to cower in fear behind Civilians
in order to survive.
Israel probably ought to change tactics, and stop pre-announcing attacks on militant residences. The population there has more than
proven its affinity for terrorism
. Why not let them actually experience
the fruits of their terror-loving lifestyle? It's a good start that they've finally planned to start striking the political leaders
that enable these terrorist scum, though. We'll see if the first few high-level Hamas leaders to get knocked off make a difference.
