Testimonies provided by more than 60 Israeli soldiers who fought in last summer’s war in Gaza have raised serious questions over whether Israel’s tactics breached its obligations under international law to distinguish and protect civilians.

The claims – collected by the human rights group Breaking the Silence – are contained in dozens of interviews with Israeli combatants, as well as with soldiers who served in command centres and attack rooms, a quarter of them officers up to the rank of major.

They include allegations that Israeli ground troops were briefed to regard everything inside Gaza as a “threat” and they should “not spare ammo”, and that tanks fired randomly or for revenge on buildings without knowing whether they were legitimate military targets or contained civilians

No matter what crimes these people commit in the USA, or no matter how much drugs they sell, or whatever country they came from, they will never scratch the surface of crimes committed by the US Government, or the mass murderers dressed up as heroes returning from various invasions and wars in other countries.

This is what Donald Rumsfeld had to say about looting in Iraq a few years ago:

"While no one condones looting, on the other hand, one can understand the pent-up feelings that may result from decades of repression and people who have had members of their family killed by that regime, for them to be taking their feelings out on that regime," he said. "And I don't think there's anyone in any of those pictures ... (who wouldn't) accept it as part of the price of getting from a repressed regime to freedom."

Rumsfeld said in the United States there has been looting and riots and they eventually come under control.

"Think what's happened in our cities when we've had riots and problems and looting. Stuff happens!"

Having lived in the USA for 7 years, and having travelled quite a bit around the world, I can honestly say that Australia and the USA are the 2 most racist countries that I have visited. How the descendants of immigrants treat fresh immigrants is horrible.

As the saying goes, "The cow soon forgot it was a calf"

Michelle playing the sectarian card in the run up to next weeks election....

The old 'early and often' card!!!

It's beyond that at this stage. It's purely sectarian politics, nothing else. 

What Michelle failed to say was that they were running busses from Belfast to the polling stations across Fermanagh South Tyrone.

The Sinn Fein position is no different from the recent Israeli elections when Netanyahu proclaimed that the Arabs were coming
out droves and been bussed in to vote.

“The right-wing government is in danger. Arab voters are going en masse to the polls. Left-wing NGOs are bringing them on buses,”

This was another of their "Vote for us to keep them out" slogans used by both the main parties

Sadly this is the extent of how they want us to vote. Never mind having any policies, just vote for us to keep themuns out.

The sadder thing is people still vote this way.

If only a few mothers of the bankers and Wall Street gangsters had given them a slap.

They have stole and destroyed more than those currently rioting in Baltimore could ever dream off

He was very poor all right. If he was going to go on air championing the living wage, the very least
he could have done was to know exactly how much it was.

But not to worry, if elected, they will help people write off their credit card bills

Jim Wells Rathfriland incident investigated

Police have confirmed they are investigating after an incident during an election canvas in County Down was reported to them.

It is understood it involved the DUP candidate Jim Wells and a lesbian couple.

It is believed the PSNI are trying to establish if an offence has been committed

It follows Mr Wells's remarks at a hustings where he linked same-sex relationships to child abuse.

He later apologised for those comments.

The PSNI said they had received three complaints regarding the conduct of an individual in Rathfriland on Saturday evening.

It is alleged that Jim Wells, who was doing door-to-door canvassing, called at a lesbian couple's house, and during a conversation was critical of their lifestyle.
'Wanted to apologise'

The daughter of one of the women said her mother was upset.

She said Mr Wells had gone back to the house twice saying he wanted to apologise. But the couple would not accept the apology, because, they claimed, Mr Wells said he did not agree with their lifestyle choice.

"Jim Wells was trying to get in, trying to see mum and her partner said 'no she's not coming out to see you, she doesn't want to see you'," the woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, said.

"He really wanted to try and get in to apologise to her, but she didn't want it.

"He kept saying about lifestyle choices and how it was wrong, how his party didn't believe in lifestyle choices.

"My mum's partner actually told him she'd voted DUP all her life and he's now lost her vote."

The PSNI have said they are currently investigating and it would be inappropriate to comment further.

It is understood they are trying to establish if any offence has been committed. The DUP have not yet responded to a request for comment.
