IDF sweatshirt: ‘We won’t leave Gaza until they are all wiped out’


|Published April 18, 2013

Another hate-mongering IDF shirt hits the social networks.This one says: ‘Citizens of the south – batallion 890 will not leave Gaza UNTIL THEY ARE ALL WIPED OUT.” Sharon Dolev, who took the picture, writes on her Facebook wall: “The most moral army in the world. Yesterday I went to the Interior Ministry in Hadera with my mother and son to get him his first ID card. Yuval was very excited about it. We took pictures of him with his new card, and then we saw this soldier. The excitement turned into nausea. My mother and I decided to approach the soldier and ask him about the shirt. He still serves in the unit and is very proud of their dedication. The shirt was printed by the battalion soldiers and it is their initiative. The funding is apparently from the army. I asked him if this includes children, babies, families… what they were thinking when they printed these shirts… I must say that he said the intention was for those who shoot missiles on us, but anyway, one can not stay silent. Yesterday I put up the pic. Today I’m asking you my Facebook friends to share, send, write something. Thank you.”
