NOTE: This is a re-run from almost exactly two years ago. The election circus drowns out much of real news in the world. Like the continued ongoing extermination of the Palestinian people.
Khalil, 10 years old, resident of a refugee camp, committed the crime of throwing a stone at an armored vehicle. He paid for his crime almost immediately. His judge, jury and executioner, an IDF soldier who had been in the vehicle, shot him in the back before he got 50 meters away. For those of you not familiar with weapons, 50 meters is as good as point-blank range for a military rifle. The soldier wasn’t trying to warn, scare or stop him. It was premeditated murder of a 10 year-old who dared throw a stone at an armored vehicle of the occupying forces.
The bestiality of this killing was so obvious, that the IDF claimed to regret the death.
Regret the death! I regret breaking a cup, or forgetting a birthday, or believing the promises of a politician, so let’s be deadly honest, the IDF doesn’t regret the death (murder/killing/execution) of a Palestinian of any age or gender. The real regret concerns exposing the savage nature of the IDF. We didn’t hear of regrets when IDF snipers snuffed out the lives of children recently. So much killing, bombing and destruction was going on at the time that hardly anyone outside of Gaza noticed. No notice, no regrets.
Perception management is the name of the game. The unseen rulers determine what we look at and what we see. Public perception is managed to stare in horror at the beheading of a journalist. Beheading—guillotine raw—kills quickly and relatively painlessly, like hanging, lethal injection, electrocution and other forms legalised murder. Real horror is when a father tries to stop the life from bleeding out of a bullets hole in the back of his ten-year-old son on the way to a hospital in a private car because no ambulances are available to refugee camp inhabitants, and the car is so shaky, his tears so heavy and his hopes so desperate that he keeps seeing signs of life in the lifeless body before they arrive at the hospital.
Rest in peace, Khalil. I’m so sorry your stone didn’t have more effect. But how could it? The real Goliath was far away. Let’s hope your friends improve their perception.
