It's an Onion World

There was the Nobel Peace Prize for the man ordering the killing of innocents in the frontier regions of Pakistan. And now this: (h/t Finkelstein)
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed his government on Tuesday to draw up proposals to amend the international laws of war after a damning UN report on its war in Gaza.
But thankfully some options are off the table
The security cabinet did not, however, discuss calls made by ministers for an internal investigation into the 22-day offensive at the turn of the year that killed some 1,400 Palestinians and 13 Israelis
The little general also got into the act:
"It is in the interest of anyone fighting terrorism. We must give the IDF (Israeli army) the full backing to have the freedom of action," Barak said.
It would be positively terroristic to restrict the freedom to slaughter caged civilians. Give the man a prize.
