"legitimate right to respond to terror has been crushed" This is nonsense. Killing civilians does not reduce terror - it incites it. The IDF committed many war crimes, including white phosphorus as an anti-personnel weapon. This is unlawful even when the targets are soldiers, but the IDF used it against civilians. Yes, there are innocent casualties in every war. But only the IDF is absolutely indifferent to whom they kill. If small arms fire comes from a civilian refuge, decent armies avoid the area - the IDF kills as many innocents taking refuge as it can for the completely avoidable actions of a few. War criminals must be prosecuted, whether American, Israeli, Palestinian or others. Terror does not excuse atrocities. US soldiers have been prosecuted and imprisoned, but the only IDF in prison are those who refused to commit atrocities.
