One shot two kills



That drawing is really disturbing: an armed Palestinian pregnant women caught in the crosshairs of a rifle, with both Hebrew and English caption meaning «One shot, two kills». A T-shirt for infantry snipers bears the inscription «Better use Durex» next to a picture of a dead Palestinian baby, with his weeping mother and a teddy bear beside him. The Lavi battalion produced a shirt featuring a drawing of a soldier next to a young woman with bruises and the slogan «Bet you got raped!» Just few examples of the T-shirt designs made for Israeli soldiers by Adiv, a small T-shirt shop in South Tel-Aviv. Children, dead babies, destroyed mosques, are few other drawings printed on those shameful pieces of clothes.

A spokesman for the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) explained that the T-shirts were printed on the private initiative of the soldiers and that their designs «are not in accordance with IDF values and are simply tasteless. This type of humour is unacceptable and should be condemned».

It is really difficult to understand how people who experienced the horrors of holocaust might accept such an immoral conduct in their army. But what is really hard to accept is the fact that only few blogs and sites published the report by Haaretz, a Israeli daily newspaper. Most of western media simply ignored that piece of news. Why?

I wrote to few of them, either in Europe and USA, sending them the link to this article. I am waiting for an answer.
