From the “You’re Kidding, Right?” Department

From Haaretz On-Line

War crimes charges brought abroad against Israeli soldiers and officers involved in Operation Cast Lead are nothing but “legal terrorism,” Col. Liron Liebman, who heads the military prosecution’s international law department, said Wednesday. Liebman, who recently replaced Col. Pnina Sharvit-Baruch, was speaking at the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in Jerusalem about the role of the law in fighting terror!!!!!!!! [yes, those are my exclamation points and I’m not sure I used enough.]

This fanciful characterization of use of the rule of law by Palestinians certainly suggests some potent applications in other areas. A Palestinian peace overture? Diplomatic terrorism. Palestinian medical response to Israeli bombings? Health terrorism. Falafel? Fast Food Terrorism!
