The Syrian army is rapidly closing in on the rebels who are in control of the city, leaving a narrow corridor through which civilians are escaping on foot; Russian and Iranian support are tipping the balance in Assad's favor.01:04 06.02.16 | 1 comments
As a matter of fact, I think you are completely right - the other side should adhere to the norms of international conduct. However, I wonder if you felt the same way about the undergrounds in France and Poland during WWII (or Jewish forces in Palestine before 1948). When fighting against overwhelming force sometimes the choice is either to use such tactics or give up entirely. I have never said Israel should sit back and take it, nor do I believe that to be the case. I do believe that when Israel decided to flout the law it lost the right to complain when others do so also.
