Skip to comments.Israeli soldiers' T-shirts depict shooting Arabs
Posted on 03/24/2009 4:17:58 PM PDT by KingofZion
Israel's military condemned soldiers for wearing T-shirts of a pregnant woman in a rifle's cross-hairs with the slogan "1 Shot 2 Kills," and another of a gun-toting child with the words, "The smaller they are, the harder it is."
The T-shirts were worn by some Israeli Defense Force soldiers to mark the end of basic training and other military courses, the newspaper Haaretz said.
*** The army said it would not tolerate the T-shirts and would take disciplinary action against the soldiers involved, although it was not clear how many wore the shirts or how widely they were distributed.
The military sought to portray the T-shirts as "tasteless" humor and condemned the soldiers involved, saying in a statement that the shirts "are not in accordance with IDF values."
They were not manufactured or sanctioned by the military.
The shirts' existence was first reported Friday by Haaretz and later on broadcasts by Israeli radio and television.
Haaretz showed pictures of five shirts and said they were made at the unit level indicating that they were made for small numbers of troops, perhaps several dozen at a time. It said they were worn by an unknown number of enlisted men in different units. The Tel Aviv factory that made many of the shirts, Adiv, refused to comment.
*** Hamas-controlled media consistently glorify attacks on Israelis, and cartoons in Palestinian newspapers frequently use anti-Semitic images of Jews as hook-nosed, black-hatted characters.
Hamas also mocked Israeli suffering, staging a play about its capture of an Israeli soldier in which it makes fun of the serviceman crying for his mother and father.***

I like clarity and honesty.
Wear the T shirts. Military is supposed to motivated to kill the enemy. This PC crap for the US and Israel is going to get a good many of us killed.
Hey Clymers at the SF Comical, try a story on the wonderful Palestinian children’s shows—while you still have a job. *snicker*
Sign me up for a dozen shirts. I want to wear something nice in Dearborn, MI.
“...it was not clear how many wore the shirts or how widely they were distributed.”
did they say “Made in Iran” on the tag?
Umm.....and the issue is?
You mean you don’t know? That AP took the time to write about a t-shirt worn by an Israeli as a moral equivalent to the hate that spews forth from the Arabs that live in Palestine. This AP story is propaganda - not news.
Barack Obama would only count that as 1 kill.
You can probably get them in "The Sick A$$40le Outlet."
Then, if you're not done stinking up the place, you can bring them back here to show off to everyone.
Do you really want to send this message?
Yeah, but he would also count it as a "hate crime".
Hate crimes only work one way, you know.
And exactly how do we know this is not a propaganda piece thought up by Palestinians and accepted as “fact” by the MSM?
Admittedly, that's a tough one to defend. In all honesty, though, I'm surprised there hasn't been more of this sort of stuff out of Israel. When you're completely surrounded by people who fervently wish to see you dead (and the entire history of your existence as a people erased from the face of the planet), it's only natural to return those feelings.
Yeah, I really do.
Yes you do. Why? She is armed with a rifle and a grenade. IF she stays home she lives.
This T-shirt is really disgusting. Israeli soldiers shouldn’t stoop to the same level as death cult they’re fighting against.
It’s not disgusting when the woman targeted is armed...
It’s perfectly normal for Israelis to hate the enemy.
Well, I prefer 1 shot, 1 kill, but I like it. Yes.
