War is, and has always been, a filthy business. Nevertheless, it is people like Dichter who ensure some measure of security for the people of Israel. Your high minded rhetoric will never save a single Israeli child. I nevertheless, do share in the sorrow of the deaths of the children in this case. I must add that I cannot agree with your view of public internatonal law, either. It is not acceptable that a single individual can have the right to haul into his domestic courts a foreign citizen for an alleged crime committed outside of the domestic court's jurisdiction. Neither Dichter, nor the event, have any nexus to the UK. It must be understood that a charge like war crime is so serious that it cannot be left to the political inclination of individuals for the commencement of prosecution. It is for this reason that all war crimes trials have been prosecuted by duly constituted international tribunals.
