The UN reports:
"serious violations of international human rights and humanitarian law were committed by Israel during the Gaza conflict, and that Israel committed actions amounting to war crimes, and possibly crimes against humanity."
Will 'liberal interventionists' and neocons be calling for the arrest and prosecution of Israel's leaders for war crimes, as they called for the arrest and prosecution of Slobodan Milosevic and other leading Yugoslav figures in the 1990s?
Don't hold your breath.
UPDATE: A propos of the UN report, the website Aaronovitch Watch provides us with a timely reminder of the 'Euston Manifesto', bible of the pro-war faux-left.
We hold the fundamental human rights codified in the Universal Declaration to be precisely universal, and binding on all states and political movements, indeed on everyone. Violations of these rights are equally to be condemned whoever is responsible for them and regardless of cultural context.
They forgot to add 'except if these rights are violated by Israel'.
