I know this picture has done the rounds on the internet over the last few years, but it seems particularly appropriate at present in light of current events. The question here is why are so many Palestinian children dying in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict while so few Israelis are dying? Doesn’t that show that Israel is over-reacting and using inappropriately disproportionate force? The answer, as explained in my recent post on the subject (“My thoughts on Israel and the Gaza Strip Invasion”) is succinctly summed up as follows (for those who don’t know, the Israeli flag is the blue and white one).
- Questions about Gaza
- Lies, lies, and Lebanese lies. The Camera does lie.
- Independence Day – Whiteheart
- Miriam, granddaughter of Caiaphas
- The How and the Why of it: Why language actually matters
