The lawyers have a term for it, of course. A situation where certain facts don't make their client look so good, even though their client is innocent and righteous. They're called "dirty facts." The Middle East is hardly a courtroom, yet I think the term applies. I'm thinking of things like Israelis bulldozing homes with people inside them. Like sharp-shooting soldiers taking out old women in the street. Like denying food, water and medical care to those who are injured and dying. Get the picture?
