ISRAEL: BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL? EHUD OLMERT'S NIETZSCHEAN FOREIGN POLICY by Justin Raimondo
"The U.S. is now demanding that sanctions be imposed on Iran for what Tehran might do in the future, for aggression that has not yet been committed, and yet the Israelis are immunized from any penalty for what they have already done."

Israel: Beyond Good and Evil?

Ehud Olmert's Nietzschean foreign policy


by Justin Raimondo


The viciousness of the Israeli assault on Lebanon is underscored by the IDF's use of cluster bombs against civilian targets. As Jan Egeland, who heads up humanitarian operations for the United Nations, put it:


"What's shocking and I would say to me completely immoral is that 90% of the cluster bomb strikes occurred in the last 72 hours of the conflict, when we knew there would be a resolution. Every day people are maimed, wounded, and are killed by these ordnance."


As close to a million refugees return to their homes, 100,000 unexploded cluster bombs most of them dropped by the Israelis in the closing hours of the war lie in wait for them and their children. Kids often pick up such ordnance because of its resemblance to toys. Such is the sickening legacy of the Israeli aggression, which will continue to deal death long after "peace" is declared.

The Israelis, for their part, defend their use of cluster bombs. Israeli government spokeswoman Miri Eisin philosophized that, while war is "regrettable," dropping the widely condemned ordnance on civilian targets in Lebanon was perfectly legal:


"Israel does not break any international laws in the type of armaments it uses. Their use conforms with international standards."
