Apparently Missing Biblical Irony, Nuclear Power Israel Complains about Slingshot Attacks

As Siun reported earlier, last night some Israeli commandos attacked some humanitarian ships bringing supplies to Gaza. A number of civilians were killed.

Since then, the IDF has released a series of videos, captioned in English, apparently attempting to spin their own raid as an attack on the poor defenseless Israelis. I found this one–in which a latter-day Israeli Goliath complains about the slingshots civilians used to defend themselves–particularly ironic.
