Weekly Report Feb 14-27: 20 Palestinians, including 3 children, were killed by IOF in the Gaza Strip.
The daily presser from EI this morning says the number is 25.

Two paragraphs from two posts: an update of yesterday's post and from the 23rd
-Those who see everything in terms of inflexible rules are also often the most willing to trust themselves as arbiters of those rules, even to the point of having the right to break them in the interest of a higher morality.Chris Bertram defends the NATO attacks as just, and defends Israel's rights, as a state, over those of the stateless.

-I can understand arguments about Cuba, I can’t even comprehend any more the arguments by people who refuse to understand the ad hoc nature of politics and life in the world, who argue against context and for rules over responsibilities as if there were never a tension between them. Without that tension there are no responsibilities at all.
