Israel's IDF: Living in a parellel universe....and, as is customary, lying

Can anyone forget these graphic photos, believe it or not, back in 2000?  

Apart from the question of why it has taken 13 years to investigate and report on the incident, one really has to wonder at least two things.  What universe does Israel's IDF occupy? - and do they really believe that anyone will believe their tripe and lies?

He writes in a piece "The Slow Death of Palestinian Democracy" on FP:

"Palestinian municipal elections were supposed to be held last week. Instead, they were canceled. A statement released by the Palestinian Authority claimed the cancellation was "in order to pave the way for a successful end to the siege on Gaza and for continued efforts at unity" between Hamas, which governs the Gaza Strip, and the government in the West Bank.

The cancellation of this election was an unjustified, unlawful, and unacceptable act. It damages democratic rights and makes a mockery of the interests of the Palestinian people.

But this is far more than an internal Palestinian issue. The only lasting peace between Isr…
