Excessive force? That term is used when Western governments and organizations basically call on Israel to use force against Palestinians but moderately

"The Amnesty International 2012 annual report was released on Wednesday, detailing the violation of human rights worldwide.  The report is highly critical of Israeli policies toward the Palestinians, charging that the Israel Defense Forces frequently uses excessive, sometimes lethal, force against demonstrators in the West Bank and civilians in Gaza. The IDF this year has killed 55 civilians in the West Bank and Gaza, including 11 children, the report said."
