Bad day?

At least you didn't get run over by one of your own tanks:

Two soldiers from the Golani Brigade were killed in an accident that occured when an IDF tank accidentally ran them over in the village of Shakif-al-Amal in the East. Two other soldiers were wounded in the accident, one seriously and the other lightly.

24 Israeli terrorists killed yesterday. Were there any Americans among them?

It's difficult to figure out the culpability of soldiers in the terrorism. Of course they're terrorists, but how much did they know? As Israelis, they have to serve. Even American soldiers don't have to serve. That said, these two soldiers who got rolled by one of their own tanks probably never dreamt - nor did their families - that they'd be meeting the same fate as American Rachel Corrie.

I think there is a lot of pressure on people to 'do their duty' in Israel, so I'm not necessarily going to condemn every soldier as a terrorist - but there is a growing movement of those who refuse to serve and these people are real heroes...
