Nearly 2,000 Palestinians have died in the recent Israeli offensive against Gaza, including many civilian women and children – innocents blasted apart by the modern weaponry of the IDF.
Still, why not celebrate the campaign, an operation UN humanitarian chief Navi Pillay said likely included “war crimes”, by wearing a t-shirt decorated with the words “DEPLOYED, DESTROYED, ENJOYED, GAZA 2014”?
The man, whose picture was taken by an AP photographer in a pub in Jerusalem on Wednesday morning, is reported to be an Israeli army reservist, yet this remains unconfirmed.
The picture was posted on the same day the 72-hour cease-fire was scheduled to end, with little sign that negotiations in Cairo would yield a more permanent peace.
Palestinian negotiators were looking at a fresh Egyptian proposal, in which the blockade of Gaza would be eased, though a breakthrough seems unlikely before the deadline.
Sixty-seven Israelis have died since the start of the month-long hostilities, with more than a thousands rockets fired from Hamas militants into the Israeli heartland. Hours before the end of the cease-fire, rocket sirens were reportedly heard in Israel, with police reporting a missile had landed in Israel.
