Many mistake the Israeli army to be one that defends Israel from invasions and attacks when in essence they instigate invasions themselves and launch attacks on unsuspecting victims. The IDF has been implicated in many massacres over the years. Most of which have not made it to mainstream news outlets because of Pro-Israel lobby groups (see AIPAC).
The IDF gets most of its funding from the United States. U.S. tax payers often, unknowingly, fund this immoral and inhumane war machine, one of the region's most ruthless armies.
The Israeli army bombed a house killing most of its young occupants; some were children less than 5 years old.
