No, of course the IDF did not shoot Shireen Abu Akleh "by mistake". But it would not normally have owned up even to that.
The Israelis are rattled. Like the crew of the USS Liberty, Abu Akleh was an American citizen. Think on.
Political prisoner, activist, journalist, hymn-writer, emerging think tanker, aspiring novelist, "tribal elder", parliamentary candidate for North West Durham, Shadow Leader of the Opposition, "Speedboat", "The Cockroach", banned from Twitter so officially more dangerous than the Taliban, eagerly awaiting the second (or possibly third) attempt to murder me.
One day, the Israelis will go too far with the Americans.ReplyDelete
