A Quotidian Execution

Words fail in the face of the multifarious horrors and outrages routinely, casually, gleefully perpetrated by uniformed Zionist gangsters on occupied Palestinians, the latest being a bullet to the head of a young Palestinian man lying on his back, motionless, probably barely alive, in a street in occupied Hebron.*

If anyone out there still needs convincing that the murder and mistreatment of Palestinians is, and always has been, core Zionist practice, I urge them to read a copy of Our Harsh Logic: Israeli Soldiers' Testimonies from the Occupied Territories, 2000-2010, compiled by Breaking the Silence, and open their bloody eyes:

"We had a commander in the unit who would just say in these words... 'I want bodies. That's what I want.' [...] From his first speech to us... he said, 'I want bodies full of bullet holes.' [...] Before we went out on an important mission he'd say, 'I want bodies full of bullets.' And if we came back with someone we'd killed, he was happy. That's how it was." (The commander said, 'I want bodies full of bullets', pp 79-80)
