    Khalid, you repeat the ridiculous charges of genocide with regard to Gaza when nothing of the kind, even remotely occured. Even taking Palestinians at their casualty count, the total deaths in several weeks of fighting is less than a few hours of real genocide in Sudan or Bosnia or any of the places where an actual war against civilians took place. In fact, any other army defending its people in such a situation would have inflicted a far greater civilian toll. Look at the US in Iraq (in the early days) or Russia in Chechnya and you will see what a real disregard for civilians looks like. You mock and diminish the real victims of genocide when you throw the term at every fight between Israel and Palestinians. Of course, the supporters of the Goldstone report understand that it could make any attempt by Israel to fight back into a war crime. How convenient, eh? This can only encourage more terror.
