As the world watched in shock and horror at the Gaza holocaust, those in Israel's Alternate Universe say the response to the small periodic homemade rockets was "necessary and proportionate". So, using White phosphorus, DIME missiles, unmanned drones and tanks to wipe out hospitals, schools, mosques, 1400 civilians and 400 children, was "necessary and proportionate".
An Israeli government report has said that the Israeli military campaign in Gaza earlier this year was "necessary and proportionate".
According to the United Nations, the Israeli military campaign left more than 50,000 homes, 800 industrial properties and 200 schools damaged or destroyed, as well as 39 mosques and two churches.
The UN Human Rights Council has appointed former South African judge Richard Goldstone to investigate whether war crimes were committed during the conflict.
Israel has declined to co-operate, accusing the UN Human Rights Council of bias against it.
Allegations persist against the Israeli military about killings of unarmed civilians, the use of civilians as human shields and indiscriminate destruction of property. source
