Rex Murphy: How the specious concept of ‘proportionality’ became code for Israel-bashing

...Israel, embattled from its birth, facing an implacable enemy (Hamas wants Israel eliminated from tip to toe), surrounded by terrorists who deplore its very existence, is asked to be subtle, to be precise, to hit the terrorists firing missiles from the vestibule of the mosque rather than the congregants who sit huddled 10 feet away.

Which should expose the so-called doctrine of proportionality for what it is: a specious, meretricious conceit designed to tie the hands of armies that strike back against agressors — and, in particular, one army: Israel’s. With this one word, Zionism’s enemies seek to twist its legitimate self-defense into a war crime.
