As usual Israel's biggest enemyis itslef. Why is it investigating this now? Why does the Supreme Court think it has a right to rule on a military matter? Why does this "peace" group have standing to file a court caase about this? INternational law (Geneva convention on civilians in war) says that you can attack a military target placed in a civilian area if you believe that the benefit from the destruction of the target outweighs the harm to civilians. The atacking country makes the determination within reaason. But first you need to determine if international law applies. The Palestinians are not signatories to the Geneva Convention - and I do not hear them clamoring to sign. Even if they did sign, they do not follow it. They target civilans specifically for example. Therefore, there is no reaason why international law would apply to protect people who do not themselves folloiw international law. It is hard to feel sorry for the PR morass Israel always finds itself in.
