Of all the revelations that have rocked the Israeli army over the past week, perhaps none disturbed the public so much as the video footage of soldiers forcing a Palestinian man to play his violin.
The incident was not as shocking as the recording of an Israeli officer pumping the body of a 13-year-old girl full of bullets and then saying he would have shot her even if she had been three years old.
Apparently, the Israelis are upset because the first little bit actually recreates a scene from their holocaust. Can't have any competition for the sympathy vote, can we.
But it is the second scenario that truly reflects the level to which Mr. Sharon and his accomplices have descended. Dante did not make a place in Hell low enough for monsters like these.
(thank you TBogg for the heads up.)
