    Very distasteful. Suicide attacks that target civilians are far different than Israeli military strikes that result in collateral civilian casualties.

    Like the Israeli military strikes that used illegal chemical weaponry that "accidentally" hit civilians?

    This is also an article written by an Israeli Jewish man who is a professor of History:

    On 28 December 2006, the Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem published its annual report about the Israeli atrocities in the occupied territories. Israeli forces killed this last year six hundred and sixty citizens. The number of Palestinians killed by Israel last year tripled in comparison to the previous year (around two hundred). According to B'Tselem, the Israelis killed one hundred and forty one children in the last year. Most of the dead are from the Gaza Strip, where the Israeli forces demolished almost 300 houses and slew entire families. This means that since 2000, Israeli forces killed almost four thousand Palestinians, half of them children; more than twenty thousand were wounded.

    "The Israeli army made use of phosphorus shells during the war against Hezbollah in attacks against military targets in open ground," he said.
    A couple points:
    -many major military powers (including the US) have not signed the protocol banning White Phosphorous
    -Notice Israel said they used it on military targets in "open ground".
    -The GC protocol does not prohibit its use on military targets away from civilian populations.
    -The conflict has been highly politicized with Hezbollah deliberately risking Lebanese civilian casualties to bring global sympathy.

    Yet most have, which would indicate that there are serious problems with it.

    -Notice Israel said they used it on military targets in "open ground".
    If it were "open ground", why would there be civilians coming into hospitals with phosphorous burns?

    -The GC protocol does not prohibit its use on military targets away from civilian populations.
    Right. Yet, civilians were injured, indicating that it was not used away from civilian populations, as the Israeli government claimed.

    -The conflict has been highly politicized with Hezbollah deliberately risking Lebanese civilian casualties to bring global sympathy.
    Which, I agree, is distasteful.

    Most disagree with war in general and use the GC merely as a form a protest. Does it really matter if someone is killed by flying shrapnel or white phosphorous (which has the added benefit of destroying munitions, weapons and petroleum)

    If it were "open ground", why would there be civilians coming into hospitals with phosphorous burns?
    The article did not specify civilians. Given the circumstances it would surprise me if injured Hezbollah militants did not use the country's hospitals.

    Right. Yet, civilians were injured, indicating that it was not used away from civilian populations, as the Israeli government claimed.

    A wide variety of armaments were used, you need a lot more evidence to claim that Israel is maliciously using chemical weapons on citizens. Suicide bombs on the other hand, require minimal evidence to show their malicious nature.
