Israel’s historical use of violence
By Jonathan Cook
07/20/06 "Information Clearing House" -- - The general surprise that Lebanese civilians are taking the brunt of Israel’s onslaught -- and the unwillingness in some quarters of the media to report the fact -- reflects a poor understanding of Israel’s historical use of violence. Since its birth six decades ago, Israel has always been officially “going after the terrorists”, but its actions have invariably harmed civilians in an indiscriminate manner.
The roll call of dishonour is long indeed, but its highlights include: the massacre of some 200 civilians in Tantura, as well as large-scale massacres in at least a dozen other Palestinian villages, during the 1948 war that established Israel; Ariel Sharon’s attack on the village of Qibya in 1953 that killed 70 innocent Palestinians; the Kfar Qassem massacre inside Israel when 49 farm workers were gunned down at an improvised army checkpoint; a massacre in the same year in the refugee camp of Khan Yunis, in Gaza, in which more than 250 civilians were killed; attacks on dozens of Palestinian, Egytian and Syrian villages during the 1967 war; the killing of six unarmed Arab citizens of Israel in 1976; the massacre of hundreds of Palestinian civilians in the Lebanese refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla in 1982; the unremitting use of lethal force by the army against unarmed Palestinians, often women and children, during the first intifada of 1987-93; the aerial bombardment of Qana in south Lebanon in 1996 that killed more than 100 civilians; and the endless “collateral damage” of Palestinian civilians during the second intifada, including a half-ton bomb that killed a husband and wide and their seven children a week ago.

Re: *Israel*'s historical use of violence?
Este mai degraba interesant (si graitor) ca masacrul dela Sabra si Chattila este pus pe seama Israelului, in conditiile in care ce s-a intimplat acolo a fost ca arabi crestini au masacrat arabi musulmani, dupa multe ocazii in care arabi musulmani au masacrat arabi crestini.
Pentru buna masura (si pentru contextualizarea statisticilor oferite), de ce sa nu oferim si istoria agresiunilor ai caror autori sint musulmani. (Fac mentiunea ca majoritatea victimelor acestora sunt musulmane ele insele... comparate cu "productivitatea fratricida" de care vorbim, actiunile Israelului produc un rau incomparabil mai mic.)
