"Israel's actions are standard tactics of course it was stupid to start a war against a much stronger opponent, however much you are flattered by your fellow Arabs." *sigh* This is an OCCUPATION, jochai. The actions and the justifications put forward by Israel are those of an OCCUPYING POWER, however much its propaganda tools insist that the occupation ended. This entire episode throws Israel into a tantrum precisely because it strips away the pretense i.e. Israel wants to continue to insist that it IS NOT the occupying power even as it want to continue to insist that it IS able to act AS IF it were still the occupying power. Levy nails it in this article, even if that all flies waaaaaay over your head.
