Israeli Humor?

ISRAELI soldiers have worn T-shirts with a pregnant woman in cross-hairs and the slogan "1 Shot 2 Kills", adding to a growing furore in the country over allegations of misconduct by troops during the Gaza war.

"The smaller they are, the harder it is," declares another T-shirt that shows a child in a rifle sight.

Soldiers wore the shirts to mark the end of basic training and other military courses, and they were first reported by the Haaretz daily. The newspaper reported that the "1 Shot 2 Kills" T-shirt was attributed to members of the Givati infantry brigade, who took part in the Gaza offensive. One soldier from the brigade said T-shirt designs had been approved at the level of platoon sergeant.

  • That is sickening---totally. But how can Americans complain when they support abortion? And many states can not get the (Lacy's Law) laws passed to prosecute a killer for two murders when he kills a pregnant mom?

  • There is no connection between these shirts where they are explicitly targeting and murdering people and abortion.

    This shirts are sick-to be proud to kill someone. Thats sad.

  • That is sick and disturbing. I hope the shirts are meant to serve the purpose of mind phucking the enemy, rather then a practice. The other message could be that they will kill them all and use it to try to discourage the cowards who use women and children as shields and drive home the fact that their shields aren't bullet proof and it won't help to hide behind them.

  • Actually abortion is only legal in Israel under strict circumstances, and each abortion must be approved by a committee.

    Killing unborn Muslim babies is another matter, I guess. Funny stuff.

  • I support Israel as a whole , but this is disgusting. God sees this behavior in His people and I can assure you they will see He is not happy.
