ISRAELI soldiers sometimes fire live ammunition at Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip because of a shortage of non-lethal weapons, the state comptroller wrote in a report released today.

Imagine an Israeli report justifiably critisizing the IDF . But no it cant be, not according to many here. Israe;l is never self-critical naaa it must be made up.

Ahhh, nothing like a slipping definition of a key term (e.g. 'Israel') to fuel a poor rhetorical argument....

Mishei, sometimes you are so dogmatically reactionary that you expose yourself routinely to all sorts of parody and ridicule. Work with us here, mmkay?

And "Budget restrictions" my left foot. I mooted on the Israeli Budgeting thread that Israel had, as of about 4 months ago, come in under projections for "Social Spending" and just about on the nose for "Defence Spending".

I will be updating that thread shortly in light of the quarterly update and the facile excuse of "budgetary limits".

Yeah, unlike good ol' Mish, few people tape a "Kick Me" sign onto their own backs before stepping outside.
