The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) on Sunday released the pictures of some of Hamas’ most wanted “terrorists” it said it has killed since the start of the Israeli onslaught in the Gaza Strip more two weeks ago.
An Israeli spokesman told foreign reporters in Jerusalem that the world community, especially Americans and Europeans, shouldn’t be deceived by the ostensibly young age of the killed terrorists.
“They may look young to you and me. But these people are terrorists at heart. Don’t look at their deceptively innocent faces, try to think of the demons inside each of them.”
The spokesman, Nachman Abramovic, said he was “absolutely certain” that these people would grow to be “evil terrorists if we allowed them to grow.”
“If you were in our shoes, would you allow them to grow to kill your children or finish them off right now”?
Asked if he was worried about possible criticisms from the international community, Abramovic said he was not worried a bit because “We are only defending ourselves.”
“Would you apologize for defending yourself if another person attacked you without any provocation,” the Israeli spokesman asked an American reporter.
Impressed by the answer, the American reporter said “You are right, Sir, absolutely.”
The IDF spokesman added that Israel didn’t really target civilians in Gaza and that the world should fall into trap of Hamas's propaganda.
“I challenge serious news media to prove that we have killed a single innocent civilian in Gaza.
“Don’t tell me Aljazeera said this or CNN said that. You know all these people are anti-Semites and can’t be relied upon to tell the truth.”
He added that in any case, honest and moral people ought to differentiate between “true human beings” and “human animals.”
“We do kill human animals, and we do so unapologetically. Besides who in the West is in a position to lecture us on killing human animals. After all, whose hands are cleaned?”
Another Israeli spokesman, Tzipora Menache, said she was not immensely worried about negative ramifications that Operation Cast Lead might have on the way the Obama administration would view Israel.
“You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House.”
“You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable.”
Asked if he was not worried that her remarks would cause a public relations disaster, Menache said “what can they do to us. We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, we control everything in America.
“In America you can criticize G-d, but you can’t criticize Israel.” (end)
Now, after this imaginary but very realistic introduction, we shall view the pictures of these “evil terrorists.”
