John “I’m with Assad” Wight on Israeli “barbarity”

In a “Letter to an Israeli Soldier” published at RT and Socialist Unity, John Wight presumes to lecture the IDF about their supposed “barbarity” and asks:

[W]hen will your thirst for Palestinian blood be sated?

Jews thirsting for Gentile blood? That sounds vaguely familiar.

This, recall, is the same John Wight who proudly stands with the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad– who, unlike the IDF, deliberately targets, terrorizes and starves civilians (including of course Palestinians).

Can anyone imagine Assad’s army doing this?

Hard as it may be for you to believe, John, Israelis (including soldiers) take no pleasure from dead and wounded Palestinian children and other non-combatants. Unfortunately their efforts to avoid civilian casualties are not foolproof (especially due to Hamas’s tactic of operating within crowded civilian areas).

If the Israelis wanted to, they could easily kill dozens of times more people than they have– as your man Assad has done and continues to do.
