is a defined situation regulated by international law. It takes place between enemies, who are obliged to observe basic rules.
But the Israeli government asserts that it is facing not an enemy with rights, but "terrorists", "criminals" and "gangs". And those, of course, have no rights.
In a war, there are "prisoners-of-war". That applies to Corporal Gilad Shalit, who was taken prisoner in a military action. But Israel defines captured soldiers as "kidnapped" and the Arab prisoners it captures as criminals.
____Blaming the victim
It is never Israel's fault.
This Israeli ambassador had the audacity to demand Lebanon halt hostilities toward Israel (as Israel destroys civilian infrastructure, bridges, roads, blocks Lebanon's borders, and blockades Lebanon's sea ports):
"The surprises that I have promised you will start now. Now in the middle of the sea, facing Beirut, the Israeli warship that has attacked the infrastructure, people's homes and civilians — look at it burning."
"Our homes will not be the only ones to be destroyed, our children will not be the only ones to die. ... Those days are over, I promise you."
