Israeli girls writing messages on shells.

This, I think, is just as shocking a picture as any of injured people we keep seeing on TV:

Israeli girls write messages on shells ready to be fired towards Hezbollah targets in southern Lebanon. Photo(s) taken by Sebastian Scheiner near Kiryat Shmona, in northern Israel, next to the Lebanese border, on Monday, July 17, 2006 for Associated Press (AP)

NOTE; Unfortunately, this very sad picture has apparently also been used on anti-semitic websites. That's too bad. But it does not mean it should not be posted... As a teacher, I am particularly bothered by this.

I saw the second picture in this week's _Nouvel Observateur_ and I was horriied. The first one is worse still: one can read "(from N)azrala with love".
It is so ironic it hurts.
