Here, a Harvard Law professor offers a scholarly and sophisticated argument about the Israeli war on Gaza

"Israel’s response—targeting only terrorists and Hamas military leaders – is completely lawful and legitimate.  It constitutes an act of self-defense pursuant to Article 51 of the United Nations Charter and universally accepted principles of international law."  Can you imagine this propagandist in his class? But the article has original insights: he argues that Hamas is not guilty of war crimes; that it is guilty of "double war crimes".
