    Heaven forbid the Obama administration show any backbone or leadership when it comes to accountability for the actions of Israel. No, the report couldn't have been proportional, even if Israel killed 100 times more palestinians, and destroyed 20 000 buildings. The more Israel hides behind the curtain of US stonewalling (based on corrupt backroom dealings of AIPAC and others), the less legitimacy it has in the world. If you're going to launch an aggresive, spiteful, vendictive war of collective punishment against a captive population, at least have the courage and decensy to admit it. But those are two words that are lost in the current language of Israeli war mongers.
