AUB panel split over UN bond to international law

Via AngryArab, in the DailyStar, here
"...Makdisi said the UN had lost legitimacy in Palestine and Lebanon, noting that the "UN itself breached its most basic principles that prohibit the use of force except in cases of self-defense, by first allowing an Israeli war to continue for over a month in Lebanon, at huge expense, and then essentially rewarding it with UN Resolution 1701 ... which allowed Israel an extra 48 hours, after the resolution was negotiated, to continue its attacks in Lebanon ... That's when Israel dropped 1 million cluster bombs in Southern Lebanon and people are still suffering from that."
