The morality of the war is a matter for everyone in the world, but the responsibility of individual politicians for its result is solely a political matter for Israelis. I see a few posters saying that in every other democracy, the opinions or recommendations of the commission would be followed. Some say also that the government would resign. I know of no country in either of those would happen. Governments used to resign over things like this, but not for 50 years. And in my country the appointment of a commission is a method of burying a problem for an interval. "We can't discuss this until we have heard from the commission", says the government. When the commission reports, the government says "Now we must study the report", and goes quiet. We hear no more about it. Saying that other countries are perfect is an invalid way of trying to make Israel look bad by comparison.
