I recently read a similar article in gush-shalom "It's ok to eat belgian chocolate" explaining why a Belgian court decided that Ariel Sharon can be sued for alleged war crimes:

Fabien, thanks for the link.

You might be interested in a post I made a week or so ago about a new biography of Philip Habib the U.S. mediator during the beirut-israeli conflict in 1982.

I have read some of the reports made by the Israeli court that investigated the incident. The horrific details of that three day massacre as reported by traumatized Israeli soldiers (much less the palestinian refugee victims of the Phalange) still haunt my thoughts.

We are dealing here with people who are very self-contradictory, for Jews are among the brightest people of the world, yet they are stuck in the myth of the Promised Land -so either they do things because God tells them to do it, or they do things by mistake, as it is purported that this attack was made. Not all Jews are Zionists, I must declare, and I hope that the people of Israel may eventually understand that we no longer live in Old Testament times, that we have international laws nowadays, and that ruthlessly attacking others will never afford them any peace.
