But the Government of Israel and the IDF have gone a giant step beyond that g’morah. They take pride in their religious fulfillment of the mitzvah of honoring your enemy, honoring the rocket launchers who bombs your women and children, honoring the thug who lurks in the dark, ambushing your unsuspecting motorists, honoring the gangs who drag dead bodies of supposed “collaborators” tied to their motorcycles, honoring the suicide bomber who floods your streets with rivers of blood.
