Financial Times: All Israelis Are SoldiersDecember 20, 2011 10:39 by Simon Plosker
Hamas isn’t too bothered whether the Israelis it has killed are women, children, babies, soldiers, left-wing or right-wing. To Hamas, the only good Israeli is a dead Israeli and it’s the body count that matters.
Hence the celebratory announcement of some statistics to mark the terror group’s 24th anniversary where Hamas claimed to have killed 1365 Israelis over that time period.
Just as Hamas claims every Israeli to be a potential soldier and therefore a legitimate target, so the Financial Times commits the same error:
Maybe a small typo but, despite causing an equal amount of pain to Israelis who also don’t discriminate between their soldiers and civilians, stating that Hamas has killed only soldiers whitewashes the indiscriminate murderous agenda of the organization and is, of course, an inaccurate report of what Hamas really stated.
