    Wow. That is a colossally bad "debate" with the host constantly talking over his guest and throwing wild accusations around, like kite bombs, bullying his opponent and silencing him.

    There was an egregious example of twisting law and legal concepts in such a way as to make Israeli actions "illegal" where that law would not be applied in that way to any other country.

    Ms. Buttu claims, "...the only time a soldier can shoot is if that soldier himself or herself is under immanent threat."

    That is simply factually incorrect. Under international law, during conflict, soldiers can engage using force, including lethal force, for a wide variety of reasons: to achieve a military objective, to address enemy combatants, to protect citizens, to protect the lives of comrades. The claim that a solider's only purpose is to prevent his own death is patently ridiculous.
