Hamas pigeons and help

Bowen diary: Stranded with dead
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7852218.stm

"Why? I don't know why they kill animals. I don't believe birds can harm
them. My white pigeons were shot. I know that because I found their bodies."
I guess these pigeons were working for Hamas-- or perhaps firing a rocket into Israel, since Israel doesn't kill anyone not associated (there are problems with this thinking, but I have talked about political vs military wings before) with Hamas.

Now if Israel's child soldiers go around killing animals for the fun of it, how much more inclined would they be to kill an innocent person who looked at them funny or made a sudden movement or is Arab, since Arabs are dogs in their opinion? Israel saying it doesn't target civilians is a joke. People believing Israel when it says that is a bigger joke. The question is, is it military code to do so or do the soldiers take it upon themselves to alleviate the so-called "demographic problem"?

In thinking about aid, it's also good to think about ending the cycle of violence and addressing root causes so humanitarian aid is no longer needed to such a degree as it is now...
