A Question


This morning I was watching Apocalypse: Second World War on the Smithsonian channel.  I happened to be watching Part 2 of 6 parts which covered the German conquest of western Europe including the fall of France.  All of the footage is new to me, and I have studied more than a little about the second world war.

Anyway, they showed refugees streaming south out of Paris, some walking and some on bicycle, heading away from the German line of attack.  And they showed German Stukas (dive bombers), bombing the roads that had these civilians on them.  And it showed civilians taking cover in the ditches along the side of the road.

I got to wondering, is there any difference between the German actions in killing fleeing civilians and Israel’s actions in killing Palestinian’s who had surrendered and were carrying a white flag, according to the Goldstone report.
