Let those without sin...

To those pessimistic, yet justice minded souls who would believe that the government of Israel would purposely target U.N. peacekeepers... From
Israel is a parliamentary democracy and the world's only Jewish state, though its population includes citizens from many different ethnic and religious backgrounds.
According to Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics, as of May 2006, of Israel's 7 million people, 77% were Jews, 18.5% Arabs, and 4.3% "others". Among Jews, 68% were Sabras (Israeli-born), mostly second- or third-generation Israelis, and the rest are olim -- 22% from Europe and the Americas, and 10% from Asia and Africa, including the Arab countries.

I wonder, why be pessimistic and immediately accuse our allies of atrocities? Why not grant the benefit of the doubt to a like minded democracy and people of good faith? And what about these notions which distinguish and elevate the human race: 'innocent until proven guilty,' and 'forgiveness,' especially for accidents. Adopt a good nature, and be not so harsh nor the first to throw the first stone at Israel.'No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle!'
