God’s Chosen Psychopaths–Israeli soldier posts photo of child in crosshairs of his rifle


electronicintifada.net

This disturbing image shows the back of the head of a child or young man as seen in the crosshairs of a rifle. The photo was posted on the personal Instagram account of Mor Ostrovski, a 20-year old Israeli soldier in a sniper unit.

The context – particularly the character of the buildings seen in the background of the image – strongly suggests the child could be Palestinian.

There are no other images to suggest that the photographer actually fired at the person in the image in this case. The image is simply tasteless and dehumanizing. It embodies the idea that Palestinian children are targets.

It reminded me of a chilling account another Israeli soldier gave to the group Breaking the Silence about how Israeli soldiers in Nablus in 2006-2007 would deliberately fire at children, sometimes using live ammunition and sometimes rubber-coated steel bullets:

Where do you aim? Do you choose some kid at random?
Yes. Choose someone, aim at his body.
Body?
Center of mass.
10 meters’ range at the center of mass?
I remember one time we put a kid down. We didn’t kill him but someone hit the kid in the chest and he fell and probably lost consciousness, or at least, it was pretty close. About 10 meters.

Recently, Benjamin Doherty pointed out how the Israeli army has wittingly and unwittingly used Instagram and other social media to promote itself. These images, which Doherty calls “war sporno” use “male and female bodies to eroticize the military, to displace violence against Palestinians, to encourage Western publics to identify with Israeli soldiers.”

Ostrovski’s account includes other images of himself and his weapons:

    What everyone needs to understand here folks, is that this is normal behavior of the chosenites.
    What is more disturbing, is that over the last 30 years of endless Hollywood movies, jingoistic propaganda, sitcoms, and 911 anti-arab fervor, has had a huge effect on the American sheeples minds. More and more of the American military are doing these same things. You know, same behavior, different uniforms. Just go to YouTube and search. You will find a lot of talk of “how many “dune-coons” or “sand-niggers” were bagged. Or just read the comments of that TARD who got killed by a fellow soldier with PTSD at a gun range. Can’t remember his name. Keith talked about him on his last show, where he had thousands of idiots show up at his funeral in Dallas, TX

    You’re quite right, Tony. The Jews are indeed murderous psychopaths, but we go along with it so that makes us enablers of these monsters.

    Tony; it is “normal behaviour” of them.
    One word came to my mind in reading this; typical.

    I will never forget the conversation i had with an American mercenary for a settler family in occupied Palestine. He was telling me about an incredibly beauty, a green-eyed female and how he’d been watching her. in the end, he told me how badly he wanted to pull the trigger and that he’d been viewing her through a rifle-scope. It turned my stomach as this photo does..

    Wally #2: You go right on and blame yourself for the existence of these mutants of nature if it makes you feel like you have some control over fate..life..whatever you choose to call this state of being we’re in.

    You don’t go along with it Wally, you’re here complaining about their atrocious behavior, you are not enabling these criminals…I’ll bet you don’t even know any single person of interest + influence.

    So please, stop guilting yourself, it makes one appear weak & our adversaries use any weakness against us. We (I include myself) have enough to deal with, without shouldering unearned guilt.

    What human could point a machine gun at an innocent child’s head, take a picture of it, and then proudly post it on the internet?? (I noticed the tough guy removed his Instagram account. Why? You’re a proud jew who has the ability to murder kids and you show it off… stand proud, killer!)

    Only a man completely insane (and were that the case he wouldn’t be in the military) or one Chosen (by Satan).

    ‘Hi were jews. Satan’s chosen! Watch our films and tele programming! See our plays! Read our novels! Elect us to ‘represent’ you in government! Read YOUR history books WE wrote for you! Watch us shoot little boys with our guns manufactured with YOUR tax dollars, you stupid f***ing american s*its!’

    This picture is another one of the hundreds of thousands that should be posted on 4′ 6′ color posters in every supposedly christian and catholic (and every public school and university) in the USA.
