The Shit hits the Walls

Amira Hass has written a disturbing piece in Haaretz. None of the 'news' in it is of course, new. I recall seeing a similar scene in John Pilger's Palestine is Still the Issue, where he is visiting a recently attacked cultural building in Palestine, where Israeli troops had smeared shit everywhere.

Aside from the horror of being bombed into oblivion, watching as family members are shot, dismembered and torn to pieces, this may seem small, yet it adds another dimension to some of the depravity rampant within the troops (can we call them that?) of the Israeli Defence Forces.

Pots of urine, feces on the Walls, how IDF troops vandalised Gaza Homes

In the midst of all of this were plastic bottles of urine and many closed bags - in some houses, olive-colored ones - of excrement. People assumed that the commanders stayed there. There are houses where excrement was smeared on the walls, or where dry piles of it were found in corners. In many cases, the smells indicated that soldiers had urinated on piles of clothing or inside a washing machine. In all the houses the toilets were overflowing and clogged, and there was filth all around. When the Abu Eidas returned to house No. 5 in Jabalya, they discovered pots of urine and excrement in the refrigerator.

There is something wrong with anyone who would do this. Seriously mentally wrong. Of course we are talking about the 'most moral army in the world' whatever that means, so I guess it can all be forgiven. And of course - this is NOT reported here in North America, as spinning this would be just too much work. Reading the comments section on this story opens eyes even further, as I find reading comments on most news sites does. How anyone could defend such disgusting practice is beyond me. The soldiers themselves should be forced back and made to clean it up, without gloves and using their own toothbrushes.

And one other thing - what it is with the fascination with feces? Really?


Edited to add: I had a chat with my dear old Dad on this. He fought in the second World War, he saw many horrid things. I asked him whether or not when they took over areas of Germany, he saw any soldiers doing these sorts of things in the homes of these peoples, or whether he heard of anything of the sort. His emphatic answer was no. For some idea of what my father felt of allied behaviour, he has always condemned the Brits and the Americans for wanton bombing runs serving no purpose other than to terrorise the local populace. He has no problem being critical of the actions of the allies, and he was a career military man.

So where does this sort of behaviour come from?

Oh yeah, the mad bent Israelis have for shitting on things. Weird isn't it? Have you been reading about the teenage Israeli tour groups that go to Poland for the Holocaust tours? They seem to have a thing about shitting everywhere too. It seems that nearly all the hotels in Poland have banned them now. You'd really have to wonder at people who choose to shit in a bed rather than in a toilet. Weird.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
