Electrical Charges

The Los Angeles Times' favorite Op-Ed writer Saree Makdisi is back, this time slamming Israel's decision to declare the Gaza Strip "hostile territory" as a "war on Gaza's children." He is countered by Benny Morris, who defends the Israeli policy.

But, for a stronger rebuttal, see blogger Carlos' "Collective Hypocrisy: Justifying Gaza's Rocket War."

Also, Marty Peretz addresses the charge that Israel's move is a violation of international law:

Immediately comes Ban Ki-moon, the secretary general of the United Nations, saying that this would violate international law. What international law? He didn't specify. Because there isn't any that prohibits such action in these circumstances. When does a designated enemy which is attacked daily supply enemy territory and an enemy population with provisions necessary to carry out aggressive action?
