The Tragedy of War on Video

CBC reports on a case of Israeli military killing of a civilian with Israeli army footage that an Israeli television channel leaked. The video shows the death of a mother of two as Israeli soldiers ransack a Gazan home in the vain search for weapons. As the Israeli soldiers tear the house a part they appear to have delayed an ambulance from coming in time to save her.

One of the Israeli soldiers says "I don't know what we are doing here. Purification maybe. It's dirty here. I don't know why a good Hebrew boy should be here so far from his home."

This is why the Israeli's don't want foriegn journalists in Gaza. This is why it was a disgusting travesty that the U.S. Congress passed that terrible resolution this week supporting all Israeli actions.
