Proportionality is a Dirty Word
Now, I am not going to tell you what these photos represent.
Can anyone guess?
I'll give you a hint - they are from the Gaza 'situation'
One of them shows an attack on Israel.
Two of them show an attack on Gaza.
Can you tell which is which?
If you can't, all I can say is you must have the Moral Compass of MTFC.
I was pointed in the direction of these photos by FreemanMoxy on a CiF blog about GIYUS and the Israeli spin machine.

Oh what a suprise, the mods have removed the link.
The author Ken MacLeod is not as gutless. Visit his blog, The Early Days of a Better Nation.'
The first time I visited Auschwitz I took photos and posted them back home.
My father gave them to a friend who had lived there for 3 years and never been back to Poland since then.
He cried at the memory.
I had been reticent about taking these photos in the first place but felt that The Whole World should see them.
The photos of Gaza are the same - and these ones show things from both sides.
Look - if you dare!
Update : If you want to see how much hardware is going into Israel for the expansion of the war on Iran, look no further.
And in case you repeat the mantra 'They were only defending themselves' then do listen to Mark Regev admitting that no Hamas rockets fell during the ceasefire.
Gerald Kaufmann MP said it very well when he said 'My grandmother did not die to provide cover for Israeli soldiers murdering Palestinian grandmothers in Gaza. The present Israeli government ruthlessly and cynically exploits the continuing guilt from gentiles over the slaughter of Jews in the Holocaust as justification for their murder of Palestinians.'
