If Israel is (G-d forbid it!) is accused of war crimes and crimes against the humanity, what of the US, NATO, EU, etc troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq? That leaves a legal precedent for any idiot to bring up war crimes charges whenever a dirty terrorist uses a human shield and once again - G-d forbid - that poor civilian is killed. Think about who the civilized world is fighting. We are fighting an enemy that has no laws, no morals, and no sense of right or wrong. Driven simply by the hatred of Jews.
