Central to the charge that Israel’s conduct warrants an investigation by an “independent” commission to investigate whether it committed war crimes is the premise that Israel, in defending itself against rockets launched by Hamas into its territory, caused a disproportionate number of civilian deaths.

In case you missed it, I went off on a bit of a rant about comedy in the age of Obama at my site American Glob this week.
