Israel’s brutality

The following message by Israeli peace group Gush Shalom appears in tomorrow’s Haaretz:

When the Israeli settlers were removed from the Gaza Strip, the soldiers behaved with “sensitivity and determination”. They wept and embraced, and did not hurt even those who poured acid on them from the roof of Kfar Darom.

This week, when Palestinian youngsters and children threw stones at a tank, it opened fire with live ammunition, killing another victim on the blood-soaked soil of Gaza, just a moment before the final evacuation.

Israel is disengaging from the occupation regime in Gaza. But we have not even begun to disengage ourselves from the mentality of the occupier, who is trampling on the occupied.
