Good Going Jan

He may have a girl's name, and he may work for the UN, but Jan Egeland knows the score (as reported by the pro-Israel New York Times:)
A day after criticizing Israel for “disproportionate*” strikes against civilians, Mr. Egeland accused Hezbollah of “cowardly blending” among women and children.

“I heard they were proud because they lost very few fighters and that it was the civilians bearing the brunt of this,” he said. “I don’t think anyone should be proud of having many more children and women dead than armed men

*Dispoportionate? Look, everyone knows Israel's strikes have been out of proportion to Hezbollah's original provocation. What is is dispute is whether or not this disproportionate response is justified. Fair minded people can disagree.

Later today, I'll tell you what the very brilliant Michael Walzer had to say on the subject.
