IDF in Gaza: You are the law. You are God.

A quote by an IDF soldier that gives a clear picture of the Israeli forces’ illegal actions in Gaza and the state of mind that drives them.

“The best thing is that you’re not obliged to follow any laws or rules. You feel like you are the law. You are the law. You decide. It’s as if the moment you leave Israel and pass through the Erez Checkpoint into the Gaza Strip, you are the law. You are God.”

— Comment by one of the IDF soldiers interviewed by Israeli psychologist Nofer Ishai-Karen.
