Define 'pedantic'

Whoa! Hold on a second!

The other day, I quoted the Israeli Ministry of Defense website. Here's the quote again (with my emphasis added):

Israeli Ministry of Defense: Israel's Security Fence
Terrorism has been defined throughout the international community as a crime against humanity. As such, the State of Israel not only has the right but also the obligation to do everything in its power to lessen the impact and scope of terrorism on the citizens of Israel.

Not wishing to be pedantic or anything, but is the Israeli Ministry of Defense seriously claiming that the State of Israel is a crime against humanity? I don't believe that's the official government line.

I'll shut up now.

  1. Whoever we are, wherever we're from, we shoulda noticed by now our behaviour is dumb.
    And if our chances hope to improve, it'll take a lot more than trying to remove the other race or the other whatever from the face of the planet altogether.
    They call it the earth which is a dumb kinda name, but they named it right 'cos we behave the same...WE ARE DUMB ALL OVER.
    (written by a musician, so we probably shouldn't take it too seriously...or should we?)
