Israeli soldiers attest to the war crimes committed in Gaza

the ugly truth is coming out quite a bit faster than it has in the past...
Israel's army is accused of war crimes after more than 1,300 Palestinians were killed in the war on Gaza.

In interviews published by a leading Israeli newspaper, Israeli soldiers say killing Palestinian civilians and destroying their homes was allowed in Israels rules of engagement during the war.

here's a mind-twister... this story was broken by an israeli newspaper and then was picked up by al jazeera... imho, that's a pretty decent way for a major story to break...

i also have to say that, the more i watch al jazeera, the more impressed i am with their journalism... given the propaganda we are routinely fed via u.s. news media outlets, i find it a breath of fresh air to watch al jazeera make a valiant effort to present all sides of a story in an in-depth manner, rather than the diet of neo-con sound bites we are accustomed to on the likes of cnn...
