Col. Richard Kemp, former commander of British forces in Afghanistan and an expert on warfare, said the IDF in Gaza "did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare," so there is more than one view of what occurred. At any rate, as the passionate advocate of international law that you are, you are strangely silent about or even hostile to discussing what Habermas calls "the highly selective enforcement of the UN's human rights policy." The problem is that the very LEGITIMACY of modern law, national or international, rests on its being impartially applied to all under its jurisdiction (Eisenberg, Harvard University Press, 1988, p. 9).
