    I find posts like yours increasingly surreal. International humanitarian law has suffered from "highly selective enforcement," to put it mildly (Habermas, Divided West, 2006, p. 28). In fact, there has been an almost complete "failure of implementation" at all levels, primarily because sovereign nations simply don't want it enforced against them and the UN ogbliges them (Robertson, Crimes Against Humanity, 2006, p. 41). That you and so many here should invoke international law every two seconds and act as if it does not matter if application is impartial and biased is ludicrous; both modern international and national law derive their very legitimacy from the norm of impartiality (Eisenberg, Nature of Common Law, 1988, pp. 8-9). Furthermore, the fact that "Israel has been more often condemned by the United Nations and other international organizations than all other nations taken together" casts doubt on the report, etc. (Laqueur, Oxford U. Press, 2006, p. 8).
