Interview with Max Blumenthal: 'Israel's 'response' to the Eilat bus shootings'

Max Blumenthal, interviewed by Sternchen Productions, on Israel's failure to distinguish civilians from combatants in Gaza in retaliating for Eilat killings...

"This thin but I think really effective and noble structure of international law is just being eaten away each time Israel practices its tactics of asymmetrical warfare on Gaza. That's what this is about, that's what the siege of Gaza is about. It's about going beyond the threshold of what should be acceptable to human values and to our recipe for surviving as a civilization. It goes beyond.... Was it justified? Who's responsible? It can never be justified because the structure itself affects us all and is damaging to Israelis and Palestinians. I think everyone should have the right to be a civilian and enjoy certain protections."
