www.972mag.com ‘I’m bored, so I shoot’: The Israeli army’s approval of free-for-all violence in Gaza

Israeli soldiers describe the near-total absence of firing regulations in the Gaza war, with troops shooting as they please.

‘I’m bored, so I shoot’: The Israeli army’s approval of free-for-all violence in Gaza

The six sources — all except one of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity — recounted how Israeli soldiers routinely executed Palestinian civilians simply because they entered an area that the military defined as a “no-go zone.” The testimonies paint a picture of a landscape littered with civilian corpses, which are left to rot or be eaten by stray animals; the army only hides them from view ahead of the arrival of international aid convoys, so that “images of people in advanced stages of decay don’t come out.” Two of the soldiers also testified to a systematic policy of setting Palestinian homes on fire after occupying them.

Biden tells Netanyahu: It's "time to close" Gaza hostage-ceasefire deal
  • I think there is little to no trust between the parties. I imagine that even with a ceasefire there is a real risk that as long as Netanyahu and his right wing government are in power. They will break it whenever they please. They will make up some reason. Maybe a three-year-old gave them a nasty look or picked up a rock. There will need to be neutral observers allowed in and journalists, to create transparency and trust. I can't see it holding unless both parties are made to follow international law and participate in reconciliation, like they did in Rwanda.

  • That is a creative way of diplomacy, but it won't progress your cause very much.

  • You kinda have to believe in real magic to study science in-depth
  • Oh, magic is real, alright. I love science, but am also not very smart. I left school at 16. But despite that I have continued to follow and learn to the best of my abilities. And there have been so many things over the last 40 years but anything with the word quantum in it looks like black magic to me.

  • ‘Exterminate the beasts’: How Israeli settlers took revenge for a murder in the West Bank
  • Yeah, I just finished reading and I don't understand why the world is not acting. Why can Israel act with impunity. The Western nations have clearly shown that the rules are different for non-white people and that their lives are not as valuable. The hypocrisy is shameful. These are people with dreams and hopes just like us. The language used by the government, describing Palestinians as vermin and animals emboldens the settlers. There seem to be few repercussions for killing a Palestinian, if any. Israel keeps saying ups this was a mistake and ups we bulldozed entire villages and ups, a mass grave. They say they will investigate but when they do, they find no wrong doing or just a misdemeanour or an error. The whole situation is a clusterfuck, any other country would be sanctioned at the least, and ostracised. And why are the other Arab nations not helping Palestine more? I understand the situation is complicated, but there are many diplomatic measures to put pressure on Israel without getting involved in the fighting.

  • Does VPNs even work against Big Brother apps? Using one really protects our privacy? (masking our location)
  • You can hide and have privacy to a certain extent, but you need to lock down your browser as well as using the VPN. But as someone else said,it won't protect you if they really want you. You can use TOR browser or the Mullvad browser for a little extra, but nothing is perfect. A lot also depends on the user > you. If you want to learn, there are plenty of YouTube videos and other sources out there.

  • We are so fucked unless we force "all" the big corporations to pay for the pollution they caused while making trillions in profit over the decades they polluted and hid the scientific knowledge showing climate change. And even then,if we stop polluting right now, we still might not Make it as a civilisation.
