Israel's Defense Forces Military Advocate ruled on Tuesday there was no need to open a Military Police investigation into the November 2006 incident in which 21 Palestinians were killed from an errant IDF shell in the town of Beit Hanoun in Gaza.
The Israeli army said in response to the ruling that Kalifi's inquiry leaves no doubt that the incident was unintentional and stemmed from a grave and atypical malfunction in the control mechanism of the artillery machinery being used at the time. The malfunction fed incorrect data into the system used to calculate the trajectory of the shells. SouthEast Asia News.
So MABROUK to all you mourning mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, daughters, sons, relatives, and friends. Granted your loved ones are still dead, and you will never see them again, but you must feel better knowing that they were killed "unintentionally". Moreover, you should be grateful that your loved ones were not put on trial for their poor ducking skills!! And who knows, what long sentences they would have been handed for not showing up in their own trials!!!!
Stop whining and do appreciate Israeli justice.
Between you and I, I am kinda disappointed. I thought Zionists were smarter than that. Even I can come up with a better excuse for this massacre.
p.s. I loved a comment by an Anonymous on the above mentioned site. She (since this is a smart comment, I will safely assume that it was a she) said that (not in so many words) if a malfunction caused this massacre, then a German malfunction must have caused the Holocaust!!!! (and I thought I was THE master of sarcasm!!)
