Boy in the Crosshairs

There's been considerable uproar after an Israeli soldier and sniper randomly posted a photo online showing a Palestinian boy in the crosshairs of a rifle. The IDF calls it "a severe incident which doesn't accord with the IDF's spirit and values." On the contrary: Breaking the Silence and other activists call it dehumanizing business as usual for an Occupation that routinely teaches soldiers to view Palestinian children as targets. The posting is the latest in a grotesque trend that's been dubbed "war sporno."
