    Barak gave exactly what I expected. Exactly not one iota of truth. He did not address any of the list of allegations of crimes. I ask Barak: - Why did the IDF destroy 31,000 chickens? - Why did the IDF destroy the only cement factory in Gaza? Both these are war crimes. You may sneer, but destroying the infrastructure of an opponent country with no military reason is against International law. Now we can move onto other crimes. Shelling hospitals. White Phosphorous on civilians. Using human sheilds. Herding civilianss into houses and bombing them. Shoudld I go on. Barak does not see any of these as war crimes. Barak has blood on his hands and is lying to escape prosecution. Do I trust what he has to say after reading his response to the UN report. No. If he has nothing to hide, I invite him to approach the ICC to clear his name. Barak. I dare you. Clear your name at the ICC.
