The IDF appears to be completley out of control. We can only pray for the safety of the people at their mercy, and anyone who comes into range of their guns.

Israelis fire on parents of injured British peace activist

The parents of a British peace activist who was shot in the head by Israeli troops came under fire themselves as they travelled to the spot where their son was critically injured.

Anthony and Jocelyn Hurndall were in a British diplomatic convoy entering the town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip when Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint fired a shot, which passed narrowly over the top of their vehicles.

It is understood that an Israeli Army captain at the checkpoint later told members of the convoy that the shot had been fired because the vehicles had not stopped. There was no order to do so.

Maybe the IDF should invest in some megaphones...

The 21-year-old student, who was studying photography at Manchester Metropolitan University, was hit by a high-velocity bullet fired by an Israeli sniper as he moved towards two frightened Palestinian children in daylight.
It's all an outrage, but this bothered me more than anything. What kind of sociopathic fuck kills (or tries to kill) someone for attempting to protect frightened children?

He would have been protecting future terrorists, don't you know?
