Israelis Calling for War Crimes

A few Israelis are really off the deep end.  Not just sort of wacky, but really off the absolute deep end in their calling for the killing of civilians.  In the past few days:

Interior Minister Eli Yishai said,

The goal of the operation is to send Gaza back to the Middle Ages. Only then will Israel be calm for forty years.”

Ariel Sharon’s son, Gilad Sharon said in a Jerusalem Post op-ed,

There should be no electricity in Gaza, no gasoline or moving vehicles, nothing. Then they’d really call for a ceasefire…We need to flatten entire neighborhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too.”

He added,

To prevent harm to innocent civilians in Gaza will ultimately lead to harming the truly innocent: the residents of southern Israel. The residents of Gaza are not innocent, they elected Hamas. The Gazans aren’t hostages; they chose this freely, and must live with the consequences.”
