"Ahmad asked me for money because he wanted to buy a chocolate bar. I loved him and his brother so much" Dead boys' father

The Israeli army has apologised for causing the deaths of six-year-old Ahmad Abu Aziz and his 13-year-old brother Jamil, but said the tank crew opened fire to deter Palestinians breaking a curfew and approaching them.

However, the footage shows a tank firing the first of two shells, at close range, at a group of civilians who are running away. more

Too bad they didn't blast all the little fuckers.

(By the way, the BBC makes Fox News seem objective.)

You mean, they're more biaised than the thinggie that claimed bush to have won pResidentials 2001 a few minutes before anyone else, when Gore had 600.000 votes more? That's a good one, einstein.

You are a despicable piece of bug vomit.

You will notice that I have posted my email address along with this message. This is because, unlike you, I am not a coward. If you have anything to say to me, get your mommy over to the keybvoard so she can type your message, and let it rip.

You peanut-brained, vile little ball-sucking fuck-knuckle.
