For those who think I single out Israel for criticism...

...some equal time for another wholesale butcher of civilians:
A human rights group says foreign troops stationed in Afghanistan are responsible for more than a quarter of the civilian deaths in 2008.

The Kabul-based Afghanistan Rights Monitor (ARM) said Wednesday that out of a total of 4,000 civilians killed in the conflict last year, 1,100 were killed by US and NATO troops or operations.
I hasten to add that, just as in Gaza, all the deaths are unacceptable crimes, not just those of "civilians," because they are all the result of occupations. The occupied have a right to resist by any means necessary, and the occupiers have no rights whatsoever.
