There's nothing at all surprising about the acquittal of the Israeli captain who murdered a Palestinian child. And there's nothing to raise the eyebrows in his being declared "innocent." He is innocent, in fact, of what must be seen as the worst failing by the military worldwide: shame over killing. If that kind of thing spreads, it could encourage others to examine their murderous ways and ultimately, bring down the empire.
We can only hope.

Confirming the kill, indeed Jonathan. Of course we already know of the brutality of the Israeli which was on full display not so long ago, all done with American weapons and money right down to the phosphorous. Since Israel is in the process of starving the Palestinians imprisoned in Gaza the world’s largest and foremost concentration camp and are guilty of causing the death of Palestinians, many of them children, in the process I’m not a bit surprised by the brutality related in the article about the ten year old girl who was shot in the back nor the lack of any humanity on captain R’s part. Europeans have always, always, always been the most brutal in the depth and breadth of their violence the history books are filled with centuries of it and the Israeli are essentially white Europeans, except for the Arab population of course. And we are essentially the same as the Israeli. American soldiers routinely gutted pregnant Native Americans, scalped them (by the way it was the whites who did the scalping contrary to Hollywood) and in any case murdered them on a wholesale basis including children and babies. In every despicable respect Americans and Israeli are identical.

Hi Mimi n Rob,
You may be already aware of it, but just in case, I note that Chris Floyd discusses the shooting and some related matters in more detail, here[link].
