Not content with their raid on the
Makassed  hospital last week, when tear
gas and  sound grenades were used, undercover
Israeli soldiers have now raided Hebron hospital, killing the cousin of a
patient whom they detained.
The phrase ‘the most moral army’ in the world
is taking on a very sick flavour.
Naturally this is a war crime but not one that
the BBC will see fit to publicise nor the American President to condemn.
