  1. The training area simulates an Arab town.??!!

    but if they only enter in palestine with tanks and helicopter…

    IDF= cowards, children killers

    dicen los muy cínicos, comentando la foto en la que se ven estos asesinos de embarazadas y niños apostados tras muros: “The training area simulates an Arab town”

    y digo yo: ¿cuándo se ha visto un soldado israelí avanzando a pie? así correría el riesgo de morir… para qué tienen si no helicópteros, tanques y lanza cohetes y bombas de racimo… ¿cómo han podido en su última masacre, avanzando a pie, matar a 1400 palestinos, entre ellos, a 400 niños??
