The app would allow a commander to type details about a target on a small electronic device and then troops would open fire on that target swiftly.
Killing a Palestinian will soon be as easy as ordering a pizza.
That repugnant message – albeit couched in less explicit terms – was delivered through a recent article published by the website IsraelDefense.
It quotes Oren Matzliach, a colonel who is overseeing the use of a new app by the Israeli military. The app would allow a commander to type details about a target on a small electronic device and then troops would open fire on that target swiftly.
Ordering an attack will be “like ordering a book on Amazon or a pizza in a pizzeria using your smartphone,” Matzliach said.
The causal way in which the colonel speaks about remote-control slaughter should outrage everyone.
The Israeli authorities – or high-ranking figures within them – view every Palestinian as a legitimate target.
