Mike Rappaport

On Fox News, Charles Krauthammer stated (from memory, not an exact quote):

"Hezbollah attempts to maximize the number of civilian casualties in Israel and in Lebanon; Israel attempts to minimize the number of civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon." 

While the reporting on this war has actually been better than in the past (which is not saying much), still does the press or electronic media make this clear?  Does anyone doubt it is true?  Given that Hezbollah started the war, does that much more need to be said?

That and much more needs to be said. There is a sizable contingent in the West that goes even further than the mere 'moral equivilence error, they adopt something akin to the bigotry of low expectations concept and crucify Israel for being anything sort of perfect while granting a free pass, if not support, to its opponents for acts of utter depravity.

Israel has amazingly high standards of conduct, but such a society does not always have the luxury of operating to much higher standards than its opponents.
