For one side Death and Destruction, for the other - Entertainment

This article in the Wall Street Journal, which was published last week but came to my attention only now, could be the ultimate proof of the monstrosity of this war.

Headline: "Israelis Watch the Fighting in Gaza From a Hilly Vantage Point."

Excerpt: "Moti Danino sat Monday in a canvas lawn chair on a sandy hilltop on Gaza's border, peering through a pair of binoculars at distant plumes of smoke rising from the besieged territory. An unemployed factory worker, he comes here each morning to watch Israel's assault on Hamas from what has become the war's peanut gallery -- a string of dusty hilltops close to the border that offer panoramic views across northern Gaza."

"/---/ Over the weekend, four teenagers sat on a hill near Mr. Danino's, oohing and aahing at the airstrikes."

"/---/ "Look at that," she shouts, clapping her hands as four artillery rounds pound the territory in quick succession. "Bravo! Bravo!"

Note that it is the territory that is being pounded by artillery, in case anyone thought Gaza was populated by humans!

Read it all. It's truly disturbing.
