The most racist regime in the world has recently whitewashed its soldiers' horrific conduct, clearing them from their abhorrent war crimes in Gaza, where those neo-Nazis deliberately murdered unarmed civilians and dropped horrendous flesh-burning phosphorous bombs on civilian centres.
And the irony of it has been that those crimes were admitted by its own soldiers, and not reported by any Arab or pro Palestinian groups or individuals.
A BBC report showed that the war was (my words) Taliban-ised – hardly surprising when the Judeans (ancestors of the Israelis) were the original Talibans. It reported:
The soldiers' testimonies also reportedly told of an unusually high intervention by military and non-military rabbis, who circulated pamphlets describing the war in religious terminology.
"All the articles had one clear message," one soldier said. "We are the people of Israel, we arrived in the country almost by miracle, now we need to fight to uproot the gentiles who interfere with re-conquering the Holy Land."
"Many soldiers' feelings were that this was a war of religion," he added.

Even as new PM Netanyahu pledged to resume peace talks with the oppressed Palestinians (of course mainly for the consumption and peace of mind of his naïve American benefactors) his government has blockaded aid to rebuild a Gaza demolished by the military of the racist regime, aid such as cement and building material.
The Israeli racist objective of making the lives of Palestinians as miserable as possible continues, with the covert aim of making the Palestinians leave the land the Israelis lusted.
ABC reported that:
Little has changed in Gaza since the war in January, with thousands of families still living in tents and homes and schools still just rubble and ruins.
But life for many children has never been the same since Israel launched its offensive three months ago.
In January, Israeli bombs flattened the main building of this school in northern Gaza, destroying eight of the school's 20 classrooms. [...]
Twelve-year-old Omsyat Awaja faces a tougher ordeal than many; days before the school was hit, her family home was bombed. Through a translator, she says her nine-year-old brother was shot dead by Israeli soldiers. Her parents too were shot and injured and now they live in a tent in a nearby camp.
"When my brother was between the hands of my father, and they executed him on purpose; they meant to kill, to shoot him," she said. "I remember also when my parents got wounded and they were bleeding for five days. I hope that in the future there will be opening of border crossings, so the construction material will come in so I will have my house again. But the future will never bring me back my brother."
Israel's military has repeatedly described its armed forces as the "most moral in the world", saying they take care not to kill civilians. It has justified the bombing campaign as retaliation for ongoing rocket fire into Israel by Hamas militants.
But Omsyat Awaja's father, Kamal, questions why his son had to die.
"The Israelis claimed through the whole war that they are democratic, they are civilised society," he said through a translator. "But why did they execute my son? So all those, all the people, all the army, who's doing that, is not [civilised]."
For the Palestinians, there can be no peace while Gaza remains cut off from the outside world - a two-year blockade has kept Palestinians effective prisoners, and stopped essential supplies from reaching them.
A couple of years back, Naftali Tamir, the Israeli ambassador to Australia in an interview with Ha’aretz, a leading Israeli newspaper, that “... the two countries [Israel and Australia] are white sisters amid the yellow race of Asia.”
He said: "Israel and Australia are like sisters in Asia. We are in Asia without the characteristics of Asians. We don't have yellow skin and slanted eyes. Asia is basically the yellow race. Australia and Israel are not - we are basically the white race."
As expected the Israeli Foreign Ministry initially feigned horror but in a subsequent ‘INTERNAL’ investigation cleared its ambassador from those racist comments. However, his tenure as ambassador was cut short.
Ha’aretz is not exactly a sensationalising newspaper in Israel, but the Israeli Foreign Ministry couldn’t afford to acknowledge the truth of that racist comments (and by its so-called ambassador) for fear of offending China and Japan, with disastrous trade and even diplomatic implications.
So it whitewashed its racist ambassador as it had just whitewashed its soldiers from their religious-racist behaviour.
