"This is going to burn down the entire warehouse … thousands and thousands of tonnes of food, medical supplies and other emergency assistance is there
So, do you think lighting up the UN Refugee Agency's warehouses with white phosphorus shells will be the straw that breaks the international community's back? I suspect it might be. Olmert's saying the IDF was fired on from the building, but that turned out to be IDF bullshit in the case of the school that was hit so you can figure how much cred they've got with this one. It looks like a deliberate torching of the warehouses to increase Palestinian civilian suffering - the only real question is whether it was individuals behind it, or policy. If I was Olmert, Barak or Livni I'd be starting an intensive arse-covering programme right about now.
