A brilliant get out

This measure is clearly designed to formalise the status of Israeli soldiers as trigger-happy while formally freeing them from fears of punishment or even investigation:
The Israeli military yesterday began obliging foreigners entering the Gaza Strip to sign waivers absolving the army from responsibility if it shoots them. Visitors must also declare that they are not peace activists.
