21. I'd also urge everyone to read the entire article and not just the selective snippets in the OP...
I knew even before I clicked on the link that it wouldn't contain the 'oh, but the brigade I'm in even did the housework and folded the laundry of the house we were invited to stay in by the grateful Gazans we were rescuing' sort of stuff. The title 'shooting and crying' pretty much was a huge hint in that regard...
