Israel Admits Abuses

A transcript of speeches given by soldiers that saw combat in the recent war in Gaza reveals shocking abuses that contradict Israel's statements throughout the conflict. Soldiers described wanton destruction of Palestinian's homes, the murder of women, children and the elderly clearly not involved in the conflict and a general disregard for the value of Palestinian life. Testimonies also told of an almost messianic ambiance encouraged by military and non-military rabbis, who told soldiers they were doing God's work by storming Gaza. Israel has consistently claimed to have "a moral army" that strictly follows rules of engagement.
