"We still have a choice today; non-violent co-existence or violent co-annihilation. We must move past indecision to action. If we do not act, we shall surely be dragged down the long, dark, and shameful corridors of time reserved for those who possess power without compassion, might without morality, and strength without sight." MLKING

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lighly upon you, and posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams, speech at the Philadelphia State House, August 1, 1776.

Fourteen die after Israelis launch missile into crowd
By Justin Huggler in Khan Younis, Gaza Strip
08 October 2002
Fourteen Palestinians were killed yesterday on a day when an Israeli helicopter fired a rocket into a crowd in Khan Younis that included women and children. As the wounded were arriving in hospital, Israeli guns opened up on the hospital, killing one man and wounding three others.

An IDF investigation committee, headed by Major General Yitzhak Harel, absolved the IDF this week of any responsibility for the death of innocents in the last three incidents, in which altogether 13 Palestinians were killed, including six children and a mother. The incident in Bani Naim was also included in the investigation. The central conclusion of the committee is that "that there were no defects in the procedures for opening fire." a flechette tank round killed a woman, her 2 young sons and a neighbor. they were outside in plain view.

In fact, the IDF doesn't need additional criteria. As Operation Defensive Shield progresses and completes its "pinpoint" missions by assassinating the political, operational and organizational leadership of the Palestinian struggle, the IDF is increasingly positioned in a frontal war against civilians. "The absence of a security record doesn't interest us," said the officer. "Too many terrorists today have no security history." kill strugglers? pinpoint? see above

"The Warsaw Ghetto uprising remains an immensely important example of heroic Jewish resistance against overwhelming odds."
"Despite insurmountable odds, Jews nevertheless revolted in ghettos"

Kiddush ha-Hayyim
For centuries, many Jews responded to religious persecution with acts of martyrdom, choosing death rather than renouncing their faith through forced conversion. For centuries, Jews sacrificed their lives for their religion in an act of devotion know as Kiddush ha-Shem (Sanctification of the Name of God).  http://www.holocaustchronicle.org "suicide bombers"
