Try living a decent life after this

I can’t believe that in the beginning of the 21st century, the Israeli military could get away with torture and killings of Palestinians. The Independent today reports some testimonies of Israeli soldiers:

[…] using a 10-year-old child to locate and punish a 15-year-old stone-thrower: ”So we got hold of just some Palestinian kid nearby, we knew that he knew who it had been. Let’s say we beat him a little, to put it mildly, until he told us. You know, the way it goes when your mind’s already screwed up, and you have no more patience for Hebron and Arabs and Jews there. ”The kid was really scared, realising we were on to him. We had a commander with us who was a bit of a fanatic. We gave the boy over to this commander, and he really beat the shit out of him … He showed him all kinds of holes in the ground along the way, asking him: ‘Is it here you want to die? Or here?’ The kid goes, ‘No, no!’

Seriously, how you are able to live your adult life when you start it off doing two or three years in the Israeli army, that beats me. And I’m not saying that this is something ALL soldiers do during their service, but the fact that it happens at all!

As one said: ”We did all kinds of experiments to see who could do the best split in Abu Snena. We would put [Palestinians] against the wall, make like we were checking them, and ask them to spread their legs. Spread, spread, spread, it was a game to see who could do it best. Or we would check who can hold his breath for longest. ”Choke them. One guy would come, make like he was checking them, and suddenly start yelling like they said something and choke them … Block their airways; you have to press the adams apple. It’s not pleasant. Look at the watch as you’re doing it, until he passes out. The one who takes longest to faint wins.”

    Min bror brukar ibland citera president Mauno Koivisto: ”Jag var med i kriget, och det gjorde mig till en sämre människa…”
