Torture? Here? Huh?

An Israeli firm ran out of the UK last week, faster than Sharon fleeing Gaza. They had a stand at the annual Defence Systems and Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition, held in the UK last week. Apparently, they were showing off electronic zappers and leg-irons, which are considered illegal torture devices in the UK.

While I don't have an opinion on these particular devices, I found it very indicative of Israel in general. What? A torture device? We don't torture anyone here. What's the big deal...If we can throw teenage girls into jail for weeks for the crime of passive civil disobedience, then who the heck cares if we zap 'em also.
