Israel's defence forces might (like all other armies) have at times done some pretty unpleasant things in defending itself. But it was fighting firstly against murderous and uprovoked attacks by palestinian irregular forces and then against an invasion by 5 arab armies armed, supplied and in part led by officers of the British imperial army (The British Army never did have an investigation into its officers, nominally under the command of Jordan (under 'Jordanian' general Glubb Pasha) firing artillery point blank and indiscriminately into jewish civilian areas from the heights over Jerusalem).Read more ›
