Serial Killers, Serial Liars

Gaza's Great March of Return began on March 30 this year. Israeli snipers shot 773 Palestinians with live fire that day. On March 31, the Israeli army boasted in a tweet:

"Yesterday we saw 30,000 people; we arrived prepared and with precise reinforcements. Nothing was carried out uncontrolled; everything was accurate and measured, and we know where every bullet landed."

That tweet was soon deleted, but not before Israeli human rights organisation Btselem captured it.

Now, it seems, the army that knows where every bullet landed is at a complete loss to account for the bullet that took the life of Razan an-Najjar:

"While the investigation into the killing of 21-year-old Palestinian nurse Razan Najjar by Israeli troops last week continues, the military has already offered a brief preliminary statement Tuesday, saying that no shots were 'deliberately or directly aimed towards her.' Yet the 21-year-old volunteer medic was shot in the back while trying to reach wounded protesters."  (Israeli army claims slain Gaza medic wasn't shot deliberately, Jason Ditz,, 5/6/18)

Beautiful picture of her on

under piece by F B Ali. Let's make sure it is echoed round the world. The "most moral army in the world" snuffed out this beautiful "candle in the wind". Sick!

And another beautiful life snuffed out by the "most moral army in the world"

Unarmed and 50m from the soldiers - this time on the West Bank. And our country voted with Israel on the WHO Gaza resolution. Not in my name!

focusing on the Israeli apologists for the "most moral army in the word". They are truly beyond contempt.
