Apologists of course will argue that the essence of their democracy and its values is evidenced by the existence of a court system which deals in such a manner with such cases and to a degree this is true. One key question however is what is the true value of a court system which has become a "sausage factory" for handing out minimal compensation per human life taken and whose decisions in many cases are dragged on for decades or at times, even ignored. For those who don't know, the average compensation of NIS 107,000 equates to USD 28,000. In other words, the cost to wipe out every Palestinian man, woman and child would be a mere USD 84 Billion .... but there would be noone left to pay, would there? Let's not even deal with the issue of Israeli Supreme Court jurisdiction in the occupied territories and the illegal imposition of laws in territories not legally annexed by Israeli government Ministers (unlike the case when both Egypt and Jordan legally were entrusted under international law as caretakers of various parts of Palestine).
