11. My impression is...
that in *this respect* (open celebration of violence) the Israelis are less bad than many countries at war. My lack of knowledge of Hebrew may make me unaware of some such celebrations.

The British and Americans are certainly quite ready to celebrate deaths of their enemies. To give a more recent example than A.P. Herbert - during the Falklands War of 1982, the Sun celebrated the sinking of the 'General Belgrano' with many deaths, with a huge headline 'GOTCHA!'
