"We'll Keep Killing" - Ehud Olmert, Israeli Prime Minister

I admit it, I'm parphrasing. Although I'm not off by much. Israel keeps killing Palestinians in Gaza. Eighteen women and children were killed by IDF shells yesterday. Olmert can call their deaths a "technical error" if he wants, but that isn't how the rest of the world sees it.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed two Palestinian women last week. The women were part of group acting as human shields. They were helping men holed up in a mosque escape from the soldiers. The men had guns and they were shooting, but they didn't kill any Israelis. The women, the ones who got shot, were unarmed.

By the way, every shot fired, every shell that falls, has Uncle Sam's name on it. Israel insists on putting a bulls eye on every American's back.
