Israel: Beyond Good and Evil?
Ehud Olmert's Nietzschean foreign policy

The viciousness of the Israeli assault on Lebanon is underscored by the IDF's use of cluster bombs against civilian targets. As Jan Egeland, who heads up humanitarian operations for the United Nations, put it:
"What's shocking and I would say to me completely immoral is that 90% of the cluster bomb strikes occurred in the last 72 hours of the conflict, when we knew there would be a resolution. Every day people are maimed, wounded, and are killed by these ordnance."
As close to a million refugees return to their homes, 100,000 unexploded cluster bombs most of them dropped by the Israelis in the closing hours of the war lie in wait for them and their children.
