    1. @ Ariel: Al Mazan counted the deaths meticulously and since it is an independent Palestinian human rights NGO whose credibility is impeccable (except in Tel Aviv), I’ll trust their numbers rather than any you offer to counter. The UN has accepted Al Mazan’s figures as well.

      Besides, this topic is OFF-TOPIC.

    1. Why would Hamas use their tunnels to attack civilians when they were already attacking Israeli civilians with their rockets.

      1. This continuous refrain of Hamas targeting civilians, the main propaganda weapon left to the hasbarists, never ceases to amaze me. Doesn’t it stand to reason that Hamas would very much prefer to hit where it hurts? Say the IDF-headquarters or the Shin Bet torture center? Or even Netanyahu’s private residence? Hamas doesn’t target civilians. The simple truth is that Hamas can’t target anything – yet.

        The IDF, by contrast, boasts of having precision weapons and with these, surprise surprise, manages to kill mainly civilians and pulverise civilian structures. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation” said Kerry when he thought he was not being recorded.

      2. @ Vita: Those rockets killed 2 Israeli civilians (mortars killed another). Compared to the 1,800 Gaza civilians murdered.

        I strongly disapprove of hasbara snark. If you think you’re a wit, think again. Save it for your pals at whatever the hasbra watering holes you frequent.

  1. In all fairness, we’ve not seen the unedited interviews. I read that the news station had edited out some very complimentary comments Shin Bet had made about the IDF’s performance during Protective Edge.

    1. @ Vita: Yes, I’m sure Benny Gantz is heartened by the fact that Shin Bet may’ve said things that didn’t end up in the program. I’m sure Shabak can access those unedited interviews and offer them for viewing. Why don’t you check with your supervisor & let us view them?

      1. The sad truth, for Richard, is that I’m not a trained, supervised hasbarist shilling for Mossad.
        I’m just a poor schnook with too much time on his hands.

  2. How could Hamas attempt ‘ ..to conquer Israeli territory..’??
    … when the entire territory is Palestine; the Zionist/British imperial cuckoo being the invading dispossesser.
    Unless you surrender to the Machiavellian morality of might is right, which is gangster ethics.
    Peace can only come when the imperial powers admit their historic criminality and make restitution.
    Breath-holding inadvisable.

  3. Well in this internecine struggle between two Israeli heavyweights some heads may roll but institutionalised Israeli “intelligence” and its horrendous practices, sanctioned by the highest judicial body of the state, won’t disappear of course.

    One of Israel’s most famous public intellectuals, the late Professor Yeshayahu Leibovitz, here speaks his mind about this like one of the Hebrew prophets of old:


    He doesn’t shy away from the N-word here as neither did Sir Gerald Kaufmann in the British House of Commons.

    I don’t know whether they have been targeted by the Simon Wiesenthal Center for this. Max Blumenthal was when he merely quoted Leibovitz.
