Haaretz - Israel News - Applying the Geneva Convention

Haaretz - Israel News - Applying the Geneva Convention

A wonderful quote from the article, maybe the beginning of Israels redemption:

"We used to think that the Western world, obsessed with guilt over the Holocaust, would never dare treat Israel like the whites of South Africa. We believed that Israel, as the classic victim, could always demand special treatment and its own set of norms and moral behavior. It turns out that this immunity has evaporated. The international community is tired of being preached to, of the outcry of the victim, and charges of anti-Semitism."

Too bad they couldn't come to this conclusion on their own, not have been forced by the threat of sanctions.

Tony Greenstein said exactly the same back in (I think) 1990.
