Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
"All I ever challenged you on was that Israel did not use chemical weapons."
Er no, you suggested there were two types and that the Israelis were using the safe ones; you also said that you got your information from a press report "like everybody else" - want me to drag it down for you or can you find it yourself?
"Jim was wrong again."
"On March 25, 2009, USA Based Human Rights Organization Human Rights Watch published a 71 page report titled Rain of Fire, Israel's Unlawful Use of White Phosphorus in Gaza and said that Israel's usage of the weapon was illegal."
Amazing stuff this phophorus - in Gaza it is a smoke bomb - in Fallujah, it is a weapon, but it is ok to use it as was a battle situation - in the hands of Saddam Hussain it was a war crime serious enough to be one of the reasons for invading Iraq.
Can you buy it at Woolworths?
Whatever it is it maims and burns and is capable of killing, which makes Israelis' use of it on civilians a war crime.
Doesn't the use of this shit on civilians bother you at all or have you got your head shoved so far up Israel's arse that it doesn't effect you?
