A couple of days ago, Israeli helicopters fired missiles in a plazza in the Gaza Strip killing it's intended target, but 14 civilians as well. Every country, including the U.S., has condemned this strike, but Sharon praised this attack and says there will be more.

This thug is the greatest risk to global peace - bar none. If the Americans are serious about wanting to create stability in the region, they should look at taking him out before they turn their attention to Saddam.

If both Arabs and Jews want peace they will get rid of Arafat and Sharon. Both are bloody killers. And this guy here is praising the murder of 14 innocent people, and over 100 injured. Will he be praising when Hamas kills innocent people in Israel? Because he approved of this operation knowing full well of the result, I sure hope he does.

David, the U.S. has been actively criticizing Sharon. They're not exactly fans of him either (Clinton wanted Barak elected). I thought the picture was funny though. LOL

The IDF believe most of the killed were armed terrorists.

But, I'm shocked he would praise an attack that killed 14 people include some innocent civilians.

Thats disgusting.

He likes to praise. Apparently killing civilians in a military operation don't count.

Another article on the IDF attack on Palestinian civilians ... http://www.thescotsman.co.uk/international.cfm?id=1114062002

Some exerpts:

ISRAELI tanks and helicopters struck at the southern Gaza Strip town of Khan Yunis yesterday, killing 14 Palestinians and wounding about 80 others in what the army said was a raid against Hamas, the Islamic Resistance Movement.

Troops also fired on the hospital where wounded were being treated, killing one person and wounding three. Army officials said later that mortar rounds had been fired from a school near the hospital against a Jewish settlement and that the hospital was not the target of the return fire.

There were immediate vows that revenge would be exacted and leaders in Yasser Arafat’s Fatah movement predicted that the Israeli raid would undermine recent calls in Fatah for a cessation of attacks against Israeli civilians. "Killing of civilians must be punished by killing of civilians," said Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar.

The dead ranged in age from 14 to 52 and doctors said that the lives of 20 of the wounded were "in danger".

The wounded included young children. Palestinian officials said all of the dead were civilians, while Israeli officials disputed this. Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian minister of local government who exaggerated the fatalities during last spring’s army incursion into Jenin, charged Israel with committing "a massacre and war crime".

Wissam Abdeen, 29, told reporters that as troops withdrew, residents emerged from their homes to check on the fate of neighbours. "We heard the sound of helicopters," said Mr Abdeen, who was hit by shrapnel in the arm. "Two minutes later I heard the sound of something coming from the air and I saw the flames. Then a big explosion lifted me and blew me ten yards away."

Troops used machine guns and assault rifles at a hospital where most of the wounded were taken, killing one man and injuring three, witnesses said.

"The army is foiling any effort at de-escalation," said Menachem Klein, a
political scientist at Bar Ilan University near Tel Aviv. "A complete re-occupation of the Gaza Strip is what is on the army’s agenda, and unless stopped, this is exactly what will happen. The handwriting is on the wall."
