Since they appear to have deliberately escalated their retaliation, to sabotage the potential for a permanent cease fire and to cynically use their military as part of an election campaign, Israel is guilty of crimes against humanity. By supporting the Israeli operation, foreign leaders have made themselves accessories to these crimes. There is no justification, moral political or otherwise, for walking away from the chance of peace in order to pursue the consolidation of political power.
