Are there no limits to what radical Zionists won’t do to justify killing Arabs? The National Catholic Reporter explains:
The Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism in the United States and the Institute for Counter Terrorism in Israel are sponsoring a conference Oct. 8 in Washington to argue for changes in international humanitarian law — also called the “laws of war” — that protects civilians in armed conflict.
The conference, titled “New Battlefields, Old Laws,” developed from a meeting between Mitchel Wallerstein, dean of the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University, to which the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism belongs, and Boaz Ganor, director of the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel, home of the Institute for Counter Terrorism, during the Lebanon War between Israel and Hezbollah in summer 2006. What it amounts to is a public diplomacy exercise to conceal war crimes.
Dr. Ganor told The Jerusalem Post, “We talked about the frustration we had over how the world was relating to the war, mainly the claim that Israel wasn’t responding with ‘proportionality.’ ” Dr. Wallerstein told Yediot Ahronot, Israel’s largest-circulation newspaper: “Last summer, the IDF [Israel Defense Force] faced the issue of human shields, and the storing of weapons in civilian areas. We’ve seen this in other places such as Somalia and the Balkans. We are likely to see this again. International law does not adequately deal with this issue.” Dr. Wallerstein also said that Israel had “little alternative than to attack these [Lebanese] villages, both from the air and on the ground.”
