I can live with your definition on Cast Lead. I think it was wrong in the way it was done, but I have a lot of sympathy for the people of Sderot. I also suspect that the planners of the NATO blitz on Serbia and of Shock and Awe in Iraq bear a lot responsibility for Israel's actions in Lebanon 2 and Cast Lead. How about the occuoation? I can accept Israel's invasion of the west Bank in 1967 as a defensive measure. I can't accept Israel's still there 43 years later allowing the Pals little freedom of movement and no real democratic rights and basically organising much of the Pals' lives to suit the settlers in Jews-only settlements, not the Pals. Is that legitimate criticism?
