Israelis Order Three-Year-Olds To Be Shot

This is taken from a transcript between and Israeli commander and his troops:

SENTRY: We spotted an Arab female about 100 meters below our emplacement, near the light armored vehicle gate.

HEADQUARTERS: Observation post “Spain,” do you see it?

OBSERVATION POST: Affirmative, it’s a young girl. She’s now running east.

HQ: Are you talking about a girl under ten?

OP: Approximately a ten-year-old girl.

cc [to HQ]: We fired and killed her. She has . . . wearing pants . . . jeans and a vest, shirt. Also she had a kaffiyeh on her head. I also confirmed the kill. Over.

HQ: Roger.

CC [on general communications band]: Any motion, anyone who moves in the zone, even if it’s a three-year-old, should be killed. Over.

What hope have we when we live in a world that produces the above?

There’s nothing more I can say about this.
