Palestinian public opinion was in an uproar following revelations of possible war crimes committed by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Al Aqsa Martys Brigades and the Hamas.

At a spiritual debriefing retreat for operators of rocket launchers and planners of suicide attacks, terrorists, Militants, resistance fighters revealed that not all targets hit by rocket attacks and suicide bombings involve only death and injury to Israeli military personnel. Furthermore, it was revealed that leaflets distributed by the organizations to their members, and signed by the prominent Imam, Nasrab Dam al Yahoud, did not caution the resistance fighters to take proper Islamic precautions to ensure the safety of women, children and other booty, as is prescribed in the Quran.

One rocket launch operator testified, "I was shocked. I thought that Sderot were Zionist terrorists. Who would have suspected that this evil looking soldier was actually a Zionist civilian?"

"Who could have imagined," exclaimed activist Jihad abu Idbach al Yahoud, "that buildings like the ones below, destroyed by resistance rockets, were not military installations!? They are not marked as civilian homes on the maps of course."

Resistance soldiers also related that they heard rumors that suicide bombing targets such as the Sbarro Pizzeria, the Jerusalem Super Market, and the Dolphinarium Discotheque may not have been frequented only by Zionist soldiers.

The sensational revelations were brought to light by a report of the crusading Palestinian journalist, Amus Arafat, in the newspaper, "Al-Ard" ("the land"). They were leaked to him by Nasr al Zamir, who had previously met with denials and coverup attempts by the heads of resistance organizations.

Said Ahmed ibn Khaybar of the Popular Resistance Committees, "Of course, we are going to investigate these allegations. We had no idea that our boys could commit such atrocities. We are sure that these are only false rumors."

UN Special Raporteur Richard Falk declared, "It is certain that the war criminals of the Hamas and other organizations committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. The war crimes of the Palestinian war criminals are precisely like those of the Nazis in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. I call for an immediate investigation by the UN, the ICC and the World Courts. The guilty must be punished."

A Belgian court issued an arrest warrant for Palestinian officials including Ismail Hanniyeh and Khaled Meshaal. In Teheran, angry members of the Muslims for Peace organization and the Not in My Name organizations demonstrated against government support for Hamas. "Hamas = Nazism" and "Free Gaza" were among the posters carried by demonstrators. Reform presidency candidate Moussavi noted, "It is outrageous that our government provides one-sided support for the Hamas. The rockets and suicide belts were paid for by the Iranian tax payer, and were meant only for defense of the Palestinians. My government will institute a policy of tough love for the Palestinians."

"It is possibly true," admitted moderate Palestinian leader of the moderate Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas, "that there have been deviations from the impeccable moral code of the Palestine resistance. Harming of civilians is a violation of Muslim religious law and must be punished."

A spokesman for the European Union, which provides extensive financing for the Gaza government, refused to comment.

Believe me, I looked carefully at the text and the pictures before commenting. The problem is that this issue is no joke. A frivolous approach to this matter is, in my modest opinion, not appropriate if any of the recent accounts are true. This is not only about the ethical rightness of Zionism, its also about how a new generation of young people emerges from the conflict. One thing is for sure: its nothing about who the other side is. Their moral bankruptcy is one of the reasons they have not achieved self determination and statehood. The ethical foundations of Zionism have led not only to statehood, but define who the citizens of that state are and for many in the Jewish world, the nature of their identity. Errant behavior by soldiers and poor decision-making by commanders undermine those foundations.

Howard, tell me you're kidding, right?

Ami Isseroff, Monday, March 23rd

So nu, is it a spoof as suggested by Ms Rosenfeld, or is this real reporting? I for one am confused.

, Monday, March 23rd

A great spoof, Ami. Too bad it's only a spoof and not really what's being said all over or what seems to be the position of those so anxious to indict Israel for war crimes and totally blind to the crimes committed for years and years by the other side.

How unfortunate that we'll never, ever hear such talk (especially not from people such as a Richard Falk or members of HAMAS terrorist organizations) in "the real world." Only in satire...What a shame...

The Israeli soldiers never committed any atrocity in Gaza.

You can repeat your slanders as much as you want : lies are lies.

Very nice so now its fine for Israeli soldiers to commit atrocities with impunity because Hamas and Jihad are on the other side?
There are two problems with this attempt assuaging the collective conscience which, by the way, is justifiably is outraged by this behavior. One is that by dint of such, Israeli commanders and soldiers can according to this logic, decide at will the life and death of innocent civilians in a war zone without scruples. The other, is that by highlighting how this is perceived by parties outside Israel, the ugly core issues that lie at the source of this behavior are swept under the carpet. We see similar callous brutalized behavior of soldiers represented not only in this instance but on a wider level: http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1072466.html
Most Israelis find this shameful on every level. Just as shameful, is not taking responsibility and pointing to the other side.
The Robert Falks of this world are surely a problem and they have been given a free feeding frenzy - not by good reporting, nor by the right to speak up but through the lack of common-sense judgment by decision makers who should have seen this coming. Those who cast the lead must be wary not to sink under its weight.
