    Obviously this is in light of the Israeli soldier found guilty of doing exactly that.

    Elor Azaria, 19 at the time, shot Abdul Fatah al-Sharif, 21, in the head while he was lying immobile on a road.

    A military court convicted the soldier after dismissing his assertion that the Palestinian still posed a danger.


    The IDF has issued a statement agreeing with the sentencing, because the behaviour doesn't (in their eyes) reflect the values of the IDF ("mhmmmmm...." is all I have to say to that).

    This is what Netanyahoo has to say about it:
    "This is a difficult and painful day for all of us - and first and foremost for Elor and his family, soldiers and for the parents of our soldiers, and me among them."

    Yeah... not painful for the dead Palestinian and his family...
    So, no real empathy from Netanyahoo who posted this on his FACEBOOK page (just as bad as bloody twitter) in favour of giving the soldier a pardon.

    So, not only pissing over the Geneva convention, but also digging the dirty fingers of politics into the judicial system.

    I wonder if Nentanyahoo would feel the same sentiments if it was an injured IDF sergeant who'd been shot whilst he was down and out.
    Would he have felt such sadness for the Palestinian's family that their soldier son was convicted of murder?

    Thankfully there are a growing number of Israeli citizens who are tired of Netanyahu's heavy handed treatment of the Palestinian people. I just wish they would vote this guy out of office.

    Shouldn't the logical conclusion be that the fact that Netanyahu remains Israel's Prime Minister
    shows that most Israeli citizens (particularly the Jews) approve of oppressing the Palestinians?

    You use the term "oppress" as though you know what it means.

    Must be all those years exposed, as you were, to white man rape stuff.

    You question the term oppress as if you've never heard it before.

    Can't you just stick to the topic instead of derailing every single thread?
