Israel is also in violation of international law and has been for many years. Once in a while the UN will mention this but Israel condemns the UN's position and the rest of the world carefully pretends not to notice the whole affair. The UN also mentions "indiscriminate fire" from the Palestinians. This "indiscriminate fire" takes place simply because the Palestinians have no laser guided bombs and missiles with which to defend themselves. If they are provided the necessary hardware then their indiscriminate fire will be replaces with very accurate and aimed fire. If the UN et all are not willing to provide the harware, please stop complaining about indiscriminate fire as this is all the Palestinians have. When you are being assaulted you use the weapons at hand to defend yourself. This is an important and universally accepted fact.
