The Israeli military is investigating racist, war-mongering graffiti left by soldiers in Gaza, near the scene of alleged atrocities carried out by its troops.
A series of disturbing slogans were daubed on the walls of a house occupied during Operation Cast Lead by soldiers in the town of Zeitoun.
One reads “Arabs need 2 die”, another says “make war not peace”.

Elsewhere a soldier appears to crow about killing a Palestinian, writing in bad English: “1 is down, 999,999 to go.”
On another wall in Hebrew, is written: “The Only Good Arab is a Dead Arab.”
Others are too offensive to be reprinted here.
The graffiti is all the more disturbing because of what is alleged to have happened during the offensive in Zeitoun.
The UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs quotes eye witnesses as saying a hundred Palestinians were rounded up and moved to a house which was repeatedly shelled 24 hours later.
Around thirty people are thought to have died…
Oh, welcome to the “only'” democracy in M.E.
