Get ready for 'a thousand eyes for an eye'
Forget the one-to-one ratio you learned in Sunday school, that's for non-Israelis.
Israelis have a free pass to kill as many Palestinians as they like in retaliation for the mere threat of violence.
An average of eight Palestinians, mostly children, is killed daily in Israeli ground and air strikes on Gaza Strip.But, now that one of their soldiers is actually dead, you can expect thousands of Palestinians to pay with their lives.
Hundreds are maimed, seriously injured or paralyzed, according to Green Left Weekly.
Last week, Israeli strikes killed another three citizens of Gaza and wounded an entire family in Beit Hanoun
Palestinian gunmen killed an Israeli soldier in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, the army said, announcing its first fatality in the territory since renewing ground operations three months ago.210 Palestinians dead because ONE soldier was kidnapped. Now, you can expect that ratio to skyrocket.* * *
"I can confirm that an Israel Defense Forces non-commissioned officer was killed by gunfire," an army spokesman said. "(Soldiers) were fired upon in central Gaza ... during an operation to eliminate terrorist infrastructure."* * *
Earlier, an Israeli air strike destroyed the two-storey central Gaza home of a senior security official in the Interior Ministry, witnesses said. No one was wounded.* * *
More than 210 Palestinians, about half of them civilians, have been killed in Israeli operations against militants [since the army launched a ground offensive in the area after Palestinian gunmen seized a soldier in a cross-border raid on June 25.]
The clash came one day after Palestinian factions agreed to form a unity government to try to end Western sanctions imposed on the Hamas-led administration for refusing to recognize Israel and renounce violence.Coincidence? I don't think so.
Prepare for a VERY bloody reprisal against the civilian population of Gaza by Israel.
