Attacks in southern Israel payback for aggression

we hate to read about violent attacks against civilians, but it happens regularly eenough if you get into the way of israeli expansionism. hence, you have this:

Attacks in southern Israel leave at least 5 dead - Reporting from Jerusalem— Gunmen near the southern Israeli resort town of Eilat launched a coordinated attack Thursday against three civilian and military targets, killing at least five people and wounding 20 more, Israeli military officials said.

The attacks shattered a period of relative calm along Israel's border with Egypt and heightened concerns about growing instability and lawlessness in the Sinai desert region.

it would be nice if we could all just get along, but obviously we can't. i read snippets here and there about the IDF killing and wounding -- but it's so routine it hardly merits a second glance.

this, however, is different. when oppressed people strike back against a much more powerful oppressor, it makes for screaming headlines -- the enormity!

a bit like 9-11: how many millions of muslims do we kill before someone works up the nerve to strike back?

oh, well, common people don't matter. this is a game between elites, and we're just collateral damage.
