JNS.org – The Israel Defense Forces carried out Operation Protective Edge in compliance with ethical requirements, according to Israel Prize laureate Professor Asa Kasher, who helped formulate the military’s Code of Ethics.

“We are fulfilling the ethical requirements,” he said, according toIsrael Hayom. “Every battalion commander has an officer in charge of locating civilians, and everything is overseen by too many lawyers, who help direct the operation on the ground. The number of casualties is irrelevant—it does not speak of omissions or any wrongdoing on the part of the IDF.”

Kasher said Israel’s operation is facing a torrent of aggressive criticism because “there are people whose perspective is very shallow.”

“[Critics] are shown photographs of a destroyed house and a doll’s severed leg, photographs that are sometimes even from Syria, and they cry out,” he said. “They do not understand anything and they feel the need to express a shallow sort of good-heartedness that has them momentarily identifying with the underdog.”
