Whenever the American army has gone to war, whether in Germany, Japan, Iraq, or Afghanistan, they go to great pains and expense to do good deeds for the victimized civilian population. The Americans repair the infrastructure, build schools, provide medical attention, etc. This doesn't make the Americans popular with everybody, but it tempers the hatred. Israel has their own variation on this procedure. Whenever Israel goes to war they rob their victims,as well. In the best orwellian fashion, Israel calls their army the "most moral army in the world". You don't often hear this claim outside of Israel these days because of the resulting catcalls, but Israelis still repeat this claim to themselves. Legal claims against Israel? There is certainly enough probable cause.
