A body is carried away from the Shifaa hospital morgue in Gaza City.
From Criminal Jury Instructions For the District of Columbia (2009):
Join the Gang. According to Hitler, Jewish people were not white people- they were an inferior race, an alien threat to racial (white) purity and community. In Nazi Germany (1933-1945}, a genocidal imperative was declared when the Semite and gypsy populations were classified as non-white and therefore were deemed worthy of destruction. (The word Semite is from the Latin prefix, semi meaning “half’ – half Black and half white, and that means mulatto (non-white).[MORE] Nevertheless, today Israeli Jews seem willing to do anything to become full fledged honorary members of the ‘white family’ and to demonstrate their commitment to white supremacy/racism.
In their relationship with Non-white people, Whites are psychopaths and their behavior reflects an underlying biologically transmitted proclivity with roots deep in their evolutionary history. The psychopath is an individual who is constantly in conflict with other persons or groups. He is unable to experience guilt, is completely selfish and callous, and has a total disregard for the rights of others. This premise is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence.
Behavioral scientists generally agree that the outstanding characteristics of the psychopathic personality are the almost complete absence of ethical or moral development and an almost total disregard for appropriate patterns of behavior. This characteristic has led to a misunderstanding of the psychopath as someone who does not know the difference between right and wrong. This belief is not true; psychopaths simply ignore the concept of right and wrong.
Unlike other extreme pathological syndromes, only a very small percentage of psychopaths are committed to mental hospitals with another small percentage ending up in penal institutions. The majority of psychopaths function very well in society. [MORE]
Every person has the right to use a reasonable amount of force in self-defense if (1) s/he actually believes s/he is in imminent danger of bodily harm and if (2) s/he has reasonable grounds for that belief. The question is not whether looking back on the incident you believe that the use of force was necessary. The question is whether [name of defendant], under the circumstances as they appeared to him/her at the time of the incident, actually believed s/he was in imminent danger of bodily harm, and could reasonably hold that belief.
A. NONDEADLY FORCE A person may use a reasonable amount of force in self-defense. A person may use an amount of force which, at the time of the incident, s/he actually and reasonably believes is necessary to protect himself/herself from imminent bodily harm.
B.–DEADLY FORCE A person may use a reasonable amount of force in self-defense, including, in some circumstances, deadly force. “Deadly force” is force that is likely to cause death or serious bodily harm. A person may use deadly force in self-defense if s/he actually and reasonably believes at the time of the incident that s/he is in imminent danger of death or serious bodily harm from which s/he can save himself/herself only by using deadly force against his/her assailant.
C.– EXCESSIVE FORCE (TO BE USED WITH EITHER DEADLY OR NONDEADLY FORCE) Even if the other person is the aggressor and [name of defendant] is justified in using force in self-defense, s/he may not use any greater force than s/he actually and reasonably believes to be necessary under the circumstances [to prevent the harm s/he reasonably believes is intended] [to save his/her life or avoid serious bodily harm]. In deciding whether [name of defendant] used excessive force in defending himself/herself, you may consider all the circumstances under which s/he acted. A person acting in the heat of passion caused by an assault does not necessarily lose his/her claim of self-defense by using greater force than would seem necessary to a calm mind. In the heat of passion, a person may actually and reasonably believe something that seems unreasonable to a calm mind.
