JOHN A QUESTION FOR YOU (.. and perhaps for others):
When I see your input, I will often dwell on what you write – it is thoughtful, well composed (if long at times) and your irony does not descend to the sardonic. So a question from this newbie.
After a while it becomes such a blur (perhaps the effect of ‘hasbara culture’), …. and yes, it does seem so ordinary and banal that these “terrortists” are ever present (on the high seas or in a Jericho alleyway) and are ever ready to attack and therefore must be suppressed – preemptively it seems. Or, as the video suggest, wantonly and cruelly. What is it – thoughtless to think so?; or, thoughtless to think otherwise? or, thoughtless to even raise the question? Death wishes seem so abundant under the occupation … and death providers ever so willing. Yet, it does seem odd that someone would initiate an attack agains the unseen and the so numerous and well armed force ( such odds, such an unwieldy ‘club’). Was this a planned ambush? Was there incitement? Was it suicide by IDF? So many questions suggested by that B’Tselem video.
OK – here’s the question:
It seems that the degree of incitement and provocation from the IDF is on the increase. Or is this simply my imagination?. Is there an itemized list (date / what / who etc) somewhere showing the number of incidents being actively investigated by one authority or another?
