Has Israel violated international law again?

International law, including for example the Geneva Conventions, is humanity's way of coming to some form of agreement as to how we treat each other.

Has Israel violated international law again? Well, from the BBC's coverage, we don't know. All we have had this morning is Israeli military spokespersons and foreign office personnel. No representation from the peace protestors or the Palestinian side, which is outrageous. I rang the BBC to ask why they haven't allowed a counter-argument to the Israeli defence which they surely must do according to BBC guidelines but they had no answer. This needs an investigation. The BBC can't continue like this. And at some point if we are to have peace in the Middle East which remains a priority and urgent, then we need the upholding of international law.
