Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

The difference between "targetted assassination" and "indiscriminate slaughter of civilians" is such a fine line.

This story demonstrates a couple of things very well.

Firstly, that despite the attempts of some people to demonise the entire nation, there are plenty of decent, humane Israelis about whose compassion extends to Palestinian children.

Secondly, that they don't work in the Israeli Defence Ministry (whose negligent disregard of civilian casualties is what led to Maria's injuries and the murder of most of her family in the first place).
