West Bank atrocity

A small bedouin village is being given its marching orders so an Israeli settlement can expand. When that is done then the two–state solution is history. And over 30 Palestinian kids have been killed in protests in the Gaza strip. Aren’t the Israelies so liberal and enlightened and all that shit FD gushes on with.

I can't see how any thinking person can defend Israel.

FD clearly doesn’t think. Neither does Hicks.

Israel Has No Right to Self-Defense Against Gaza

A UN General Assembly resolution “deplore[d] the use of any excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force by the Israeli forces against Palestinian civilians,” while the UN Human Rights Council denounced Israel’s “disproportionate and indiscriminate use of force.” After Israeli snipers killed Razan al-Najjar, a twenty-one-year-old unarmed Palestinian paramedic, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process warned Israel that it “needs to calibrate its use of force.” In a devastating report, Human Rights Watch concluded that “Israeli forces’ repeated use of lethal force in the Gaza Strip … against demonstrators who posed no imminent threat to life may amount to war crimes.”

Welcome as these condemnations are, the question nonetheless remains whether they go far enough. Simply put, does Israel have the right to use any force under any circumstances against the people of Gaza?
