This is what I am forced to read in the American press. I mean, is this journalism or IDF propaganda brochures? What's the difference: ""You're an officer now, so look after your soldiers, and always, always keep your eyes open," said his father, Yossi, who fought alongside two brothers in Israel's wars of 1967 and 1973 and was a 3-year-old child when his own father lost a leg to a land mine while fighting for the fledgling Jewish state in 1948." So do you see the impulse in the US press? They do a great job of humanizing Israeli killers, and a greater job in dehumanizing Arab civilians? I still can't believe that the Israeli government spends millions on propaganda in the US (it does).
