As the US (the great protector of Israel) continues its decline, so will the influence it can bring to bear against other nations. In the 'old days' the US would have ensured this all went away quitely. Things are now different. Like every other nation, Israel should and must be bound by international laws. This is a clear message to Israel that they can no longer hide behind the US and that the ways of the past will no longer be tolerated by the rest of the world. Before I recieve 'flames' in response to this I would like to say that I support Israels right to exist and wish them no harm - however we are all bound by the same international (and moral) obligations - to have exceptions, however well intentioned, is to invite anarchy........
