The thing is mate it's all very well you banging on about Sri Lanka and Lebanon and all the rest. Certainly war crimes were committed there. Israel's trouble, I suspect, is not so much what it does, but why it does it. Israel is basically fighting to maintain a status quo in which for over 40 years it has been stealing Palestinian land while keeping the Pals as 7th class citizens without any vote or influence over the Israelis who control so much of their lives. It's like if a kidnapper uses the same violence as a policeman, the kidnapper is committing a crime, while the cop isn't. Now I know Hamas aren't nice people and suicide bombings were horrific crimes, but because of the occupation Israel will always ultimately be in the wrong in the eyes of much of the world. Free the Pals and then Israel will get treated like everyone else.
