PIN POINT ACCURACY July 26, 2006

The Israeli spin machine was weaving the line about attacking with “pin point accuracy”. Now there are, among others reports of an attack on an ambulance and a UN border post. The BBC reports in relation to the UN post says that:

UN peacekeepers in south Lebanon contacted Israeli troops 10 times before an Israeli bomb killed four of them, an initial UN report says. The post was hit by a precision-guided missile after six hours of shelling nearby, diplomats familiar with the initial probe into the deaths say.. . The four unarmed UN observers from Austria, Canada, China and Finland, died after their UN post was hit by an Israeli air strike on Tuesday. The UN report says each time the UN contacted Israeli forces, they were assured the firing would stop.

Israel according to the same report rejected the Secretary General’s comment that the targeting was “apparently deliberate”.

Pin point one moment, errant the next. Perhaps, like the outdated Soviet-sourced kaytusha rockets, this weapon doubtless supplied by the Americans was not a “precision-guided missile” after all.

Hizbullah is routinely characterized as a “terrorist organization”, but the evidence from the two week bombing campaign of Lebanon is that Israel can accurately be described as terrorist state, that is, in accordance with a strict definition it is seeking to achieve political objectives by using military terror against civilian populations. Of course, it is possible to add the behavior in Gaza and the West Bank as further evidence.

I do not understand why the Israeli war crimes go unreported in the mainstream media that I hear and see.
