I was going to make a quick note to the order of the definition of genocide. Torin defined the term and in relation to his definition he is correct mostly. The term was coined in the fifties and though there exists an official definition, posited by the UN, it is hardly satisfactory. For one, it excludes the possibility for discrimination against political alignment... The point of all of this is that definitions are flexible, not concrete, and Torin did provide a definition for the term that is acceptable within the context of the discussion. I don't see any reason to attack him for that...he didn't call an apple a goat or anything.
As for the topic, Israel is in the wrong. I can elaborate later but I gotta cop out for the moment.
