There is such thing as aiding someone by doing next to nothing to prevent them doing harm.

    He's like Gerry Adams to me. He's suffered quite a bit already so I don't think there' any more to say except RIP.

    Yes it is much simpler to be able to recognize right from wrong. All though Chomsky is careful enough to not make overt slurs, and slams against Jewish people, he certainly supports all the right causes, and people that do.

    The phalanges were to enter the camps and clean them from combatants, not clean them from women and children.
    If doing nothing counts as aiding then the Palestinian civilians who do nothing when terrorists launch rockets from their backyards and schools are aiding terror.

    There is one hell of a difference than one heavily armed force not doing anything to stop another armed force (supplied and backed by the first armed force) for carrying out war crimes, than unarmed civilians stopping heavily armed terrorists from operating among them. If you cant see that, then frankly the debate is over.

    If you are in a store where some one is robbing it at gun point.. are you a criminal for not stopping the robber? Of course not.

    Now are you the one supplying the gun that the robber was using and you knew that this was what he was going to use it for.. then yes you are a criminal.

    Hmmm. Me thinks you take this place too seriously. In any case you don't know me, and if you don't care to it really is no skin off my nose.

    Thats exactly the point, the IDF didn't know, and thats exactly the problem with the IDF command and Israeli government, they didn't stop to think.
    If we take your analogy, it will be like selling a gun to someone without doing a background check. Are you aiding him in his robbery? No. Are you to blame for the robbery? No. Are you an idiot because you didn't do a background check and found out that he is a lunatic? Yes. Should you be banned from selling guns ever again? Yes.
