Quotable: "... inflicting Nuremberg crimes on the Palestinians"

I spoke with the head military lawyer for the IDF, Joel Singer, and I said, "You know, I've spent two weeks here. It's clear you people are inflicting Nuremberg crimes on the Palestinians, exactly what the Nazis did to the Jews. What's your explanation?" He said, "Military necessity." Notice, he didn't disagree with me. I said, "That argument was rejected at Nuremberg when the lawyers for the Nazis made it." So then he said, "Well, we have public relations people in the United States, and they handle these matters for us."
