 IDF - Israeli Defense Fantasy

The Israeli "Defense" Force
has not had to defend itself
against another army
since the early seventies.
The fourth largest military on earth,
with the most up-to-the-minute
lethal, means of destruction,
turns it on women and children,

the elderly, their homes, hospitals and schools,
making sure they've no clean drinking water,
electricity and, increasingly, food.

IDF uses white phosphorous
to incinerate them to charcoal briquettes,
DIMES and GBU-39s to surgically slice off
their legs, their arms and their heads.

IDF force is used essentially
against those without any hope of defense.
It's an army of cowards wading in the blood
of people with no means to threaten them.

The Israeli Occupation Force has never
met an enemy tank or enemy pilots in combat.
Its tanks crush taxis and other civilian vehicles.
Residential neighborhoods are all that's bombed by its pilots.

"That's what was so nice about Gaza,"
an IDF soldier said.
"You see a person on the road
...and you can just shoot him."  Dead.

These "soldiers"/serial killers wear T-shirts
proclaiming "One shot, two kills"
with targets superimposed on the abdomens
of pregnant Palestinian women.

This "ethical" fighting force is trained
to conduct grotesque spectacles of blood-thirsty killing
of dirty, subhuman terrorists, in other words,
innocent Palestinian civilians.

These are not "a few bad apples", but an orchard,
the fruit of the poisonous, apartheid tree.
Since Zionism demanded a land without people,
Palestine was cleansed ethnically

for a group of dominionist criminals,
a racist people who are not a race,
united by hatred for anyone ineligible
for their manufactured Jews-only nation.

Their IDF specializes in fighting
wars that are not really wars,
but a deliberate, wanton assembly line
of war crimes and blood-soaked mass murders.

The "most moral soldier of the face of the earth"
writes "Death to Arabs" in the homes he invades so casually,
spits on family photos, smears his sh*t over the walls,
then destroys everything that means anything to the family.

Just because he can.  Mmmmmmm...  What a man!

Gaza is proof of how much importance
the IDF places on ethics.
Any show of concern, or promise to investigate
is an elaborate charade for the public

because "for the IDF, justice
is a dead Palestinian and a live Israeli.
Anything else is meaningless." *
