Yes, they shot James Miller in the neck even though he had a cameraman with him and a white flag... and the Israelis (by definition) were using high definition night-scopes. And of course, like the lady who got bulldozed in a Palenstinian house a couple years back, no one will ever answer for it.
The soldiers who run the tanks and bulldozers and APCs through Gaza and other occupied territories, can do whatever the hell they want, and they do, and they will never answer for it because the Israeli government just doesn't give a shit. And this started long before there were Palestinians blowing up Israeli cafes (which for the record, I also find to be hateful and despicable).
But what they're doing, if you look at the maps as they get revised over time, and if you watch that documentary, is depressingly obvious. They're slowly, but systematically eliminating the Palestinian neighborhoods in the areas they want to occupy (or make inhabitable to anyone), leaving scores of people homeless (and of course, ready to die). They destroy what little these people have to live for (a home, a family, a place to call "their neighborhood"). Hell if some goverment did that to my family's home (or killed my neighbors or whatever), I'd want to lash out, too.
There is of course the Palestinian side of the problem, with the paramilitaries brain-washing the little kids into thinking it's good to die, etc. And we didn't get to see the Israeli deaths (because the Israelis have open season in Gaza and shot Miller in the neck before he ever did that part of the documentary), but the point is the same as it always was: tanks and choppers and jets and gigantic bulldozers against people with a few guns and home-made explosives. If all the isolated Palestinian neighborhoods become "security zones", pretty soon there won't be any Palestinian neighborhoods.
They move through Gaza, just indescriminately destroying new pieces of property each day. Someone's house here, someone's yard there, leveling "new security zones" (and its so obvious the bulldozings have no effect on "security"; the whole damn place is like one giant rubble-pile, so the motives are clearly not security-related).
It's really pathetic. And almost worse than anything the Israelis do, is that our government knows they've been doing this crap (hell they supply the tanks and choppers and jets), and they don't say squat about it. No reprimands, no economic sanctions, no stringent policies, nothing. Because God forbid we ever criticize the Israeli government; that would be anti-semitic, right? They are above criticism, because anything they do *must* be self-defense.
Watch this documentary and you'll see what "self defense" the Israeli way means.
