JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's military said on Wednesday it had banned soldiers from making and wearing t-shirts encouraging violence against Palestinians.
One of the t-shirts has a rifle sight aimed at a pregnant Palestinian with the slogan "1 shot, 2 kills," according to a report last month in the Haaretz newspaper.
A spokesman for the military called the shirts "simply tasteless," and said the armed forces' chief educational officer had instructed commanders to ensure soldiers did not create or wear the items and to discipline those who disobeyed.
Haaretz said soldiers graduating from a snipers' course designed the t-shirts with the gun sight on the pregnant woman and printed them privately. The paper described examples of soldiers in other units printing shirts with their own slogans.

“1 shot 2 kills”...I want that shirt!
That’s pretty f-ed up, Moby.
yeah well, war is not pretty and they are the enemy.
You’re the weakest link.
They being women and unborn children? You work for an abortion clinic?
Sounds like an April Fools day joke.
The T-shirt tasteless and immoral....
I’d discipline any soldier under my command that wore it.
Any officer who authorized it would be subject to review.
Yeah, war is hell, but there are still codes of conduct and those who violate them must be disciplined.
If they are raising a firearm against America, Isreal or any of our allies, then yes , I AM the abortion clinic.
The picture clearly shows the enemy with a rifle raised.Im not saying mow down unarmed civies.You do know that they dress suicide zombies dressed as pregnant women against our troops in Iran right?
The shirt effectively strikes a fearful chord and displaying that shirt TO the enemy is perfectly good propoganda.
Not helpful to the cause. This will predictably be blown up and spread around for the next 50 years or so.
Democratunderground and other lefties looking for juicy snippets to paint us all as bloodthirsty fools will have a field day with your posts.
Okay.Fine, its banned, they are not wearing it anymore,I cant buy it, and Im moving on.Alrighty?
Its a bad shirt.Evil shirt.
Not good, not good at all. I would ask the mods to remove that pic. Nothing good can come from that.
Fair enough. But I’ve got to wonder. Top is in yiddish.
Bottom is in english...why would they do that?
A propaganda plant perhaps? Just wondering.
