    For far too many years, Israel has been able to engage in atrocious conduct with impunity, always shielded by the US Security Council veto. Hopefully, that veto will stay in our pocket this time. It is time that Israel be treated like every other country in the world, subject to scrutiny and international sanction. Israel's denials are pathetic. Everyone who has looked into Cast Lead has come to the same conclusions - except for the IDF, which has to even claim that some of its own soldiers are lying. Many of the atrocities were caught on videotape. There can be no doubt that Israel is guilty of war crimes. IDF traveling abroad should be prosecuted and they should fear to travel. That is the fate of war criminals and so it should be. Israelis have been loudly talking about how little they need the US and that we have no right to influence them. Their tune seems to be changing now that they need US help. That help should not be forthcoming
