Yield the Shield

It seems to be the case that the only people putting heat on the Israelis for their less than admirable behaviour are ... Israelis:
IDF to probe human shields allegations

DF Judge Advocate General Brig.-Gen. Avichai Madelblit ordered the Military Police Thursday night to launch a criminal investigation into allegations that IDF soldiers used Palestinians as human shields during an operation in Nablus.

Palestinians claimed that civilians were used as human shields when troops raided houses in Nablus two weeks ago during Operation Hot Winter, which was aimed at uncovering terror infrastructure in the city.

The human rights group B'Tselem charged that troops took two minors - a 15-year-old boy and an 11-year old girl - along while they searched houses for gunmen and weapons, forcing them to enter the houses first.

Not quite true and I had a picture.

Of course, I don't really count as "heat".

spiiderweb,

Yes, I saw that on your site. And, no, most of us are not "heat" either.
