'... the Gaza war was a disproportionate contest, with a vastly disproportionate outcome. It would be irresposible of the UN to abandon it unresolved, with or without the Goldstone report.' 'Disproportionality' between adversaries isn't a valid reason for a UN enquiry, Esther. There was no UN enquiry on the Six Day war. Pray tell, how should a sovereign nation react when its citizens are under constant rocket bombardment, when it has already warned its adversary to cease fire, when it has even warned the civilians living under the adversary's thumb? And tell me, too, why the UN is so fixated upon investigating Israel's war conduct, when the root cause of the conflict patently did not lay with Israel? These are the questions, which, if the UN were as responsible as you claim it to be, would lay at the very heart of its enquiries!
