This Week's Palestinian Sacrifice, Delivered by an Israeli Bulldozer

20 31 124

What did people on the right wing feel upon seeing the images of an Israeli army bulldozer burrowing into the ground in Gaza and snatching the body of a man as if it were an animal carcass being removed due to the stench? What were the feelings of the Goldin family, whose soldier son’s body is being held in Gaza, and who are considerably responsible for this spectacle, in the face of this desecration of dead? Did they feel satisfaction? A sense of revenge? Did they think that the return of their son’s body was brought closer even a bit in light of this scene?

And what were the thoughts of Defense Minister Naftali Bennett, who laid out this policy to snatch bodies? Was he proud of the Israeli soldiers who carried out his order? Would he be pleased to have the new doctrine named after himself, a doctrine involving the trafficking in bodies, his sole legacy?

And what do the army chief of staff, the commander of the Southern Command and the unit commander think? Were they also enthusiastic over these scenes? Is that their victory photo? Their combat legacy?

And what about the bulldozer operator? What will he say when he returns to his family? That he abducted a body? That it was his job? What will he tell his children some........
