    Sabra, Many of your points to me are simply formulated having a wrong premise in head, and thus, to some another person who might accept it because of intellectual or political convenience. This premise is constructing all the arguments along the opposition of a 'good guy' and a 'baddie'. It belongs to the idiolects like Hasbara or Hamas PR. The GC & HR define and delimits the objective, setting the opposition both parts (and apparently, you too) choose to ignore: either you are within the rules or outside (before you question those, I can stop you by reminding that invalidating them you morally invalidate any claim of similar harm done to you e.g genocide etc.). This opposition by no means implies that the conformity with these rules tantamount to a 'lil clean war'. About half of IDF casualties were hit by the friendly fire. The rules imply that you cannot raze down people with white flag. Effective or neutralized, Goldstone report is a litmus test of abiding to law.
