And Now Some 'Humor' From The World's Top Terrorist Nation

This just turns my stomach... no, worse than that, but I can't quite describe it. I'm mad as hell.

It shows exactly what these people are made of.

In the Middle Ages in Britain, tight-fitting metal cages were welded around the victim's bodies. Although that application severely grossed me out, maybe these guys should experience that, along with the dancing, cheering cameramen from 9/11 who were there to "record the event" and all those who direct them. I'm not usually given to such feelings, but killing women and babies with phosphorus, tanks and UZIs makes them much, much worse than anyone they claim is hurting them... now or whenever.

Israeli Army T-Shirts Mock Gaza Killings

The Israeli army is at the centre of a second controversy over the moral conduct of its soldiers in as many days.

The revelations centre on t-shirt designs made for soldiers that make light of shooting pregnant Palestinian mothers and children and include images of dead babies and destroyed mosques.

The t-shirts were printed for Israeli soldiers at the end of periods of deployment or training courses and were discovered by Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

One, printed for a platoon of Israeli snipers depicts an armed Palestinian pregnant women caught in the crosshairs of a rifle, with the disturbing caption in English: "1 shot 2 kills".

Another depicts a child carrying a gun also in the centre of a target.

"The smaller, the harder," read the words on the t-shirt.

According to a soldier interviewed by the newspaper, the message has a double meaning: "It's a kid, so you've got a little more of a problem, morally and also the target is smaller."

Another shows an Israeli soldier blowing up a mosque and reads "Only God forgives".

Above a ninja figure, yet another shirt bears the slogan "Won't chill until I confirm a kill".

The revelations, coming so soon after Israel's offensive in Gaza in which hundreds of civilians were killed - many of them women and children - are causing outrage.

Perhaps the most shocking design shows a Palestinian mother weeping next to her dead baby's grave, also in the crosshairs of a rifle.

It suggests it would have been better if the child had never been born, with the slogan "Better use Durex".

The controversy follows more revelations by other soldiers about abuses and the shooting of civilians during Israel's offensive during the Gaza offensive.

Ex-soldier and campaigner with Breaking The Silence, Michael Maniken, told Sky News Online this week's revelations suggest a pattern of immoral conduct in the army.

"The army keeps on saying we're talking about a few rotten apples but it seems the army doesn't understand there's a norm in this kind of action," he explained.

"We're hearing about this time and time again and the army seems disconnected from reality."

A spokesman for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) told Sky News Online, the t-shirts were printed on the private initiative of the soldiers and their designs "are not in accordance with IDF values and are simply tasteless. This type of humour is unacceptable and should be condemned".

It sure didn't take much to change the way I think about the Israeli's. I hope this is just a small rogue group within their military and not their thoughts as a whole.

I would like to call it blatant stupidity but I'm afraid there is certainly more to it than just that. If this is really the way that country thinks then they may as well join the ranks with people such as Bin Laden, Hitler and Saddam Hussein because they're not human, they're animal. In our country, we euthanize animals such as those.

Yeah... it's way beyond creepy.

This sort of thing has been going on for 60 years. The apartheid there seems to dwarf that of South Africa's past. Long ago I watched a film where one of their tanks ran over a little girl. On purpose.

Then there's the attack on the USS Liberty. And as mentioned the Mossad agents arrested in NY on 9/11 who later told a home tv audience that "they were just there to record the event."

And these people have nukes.
