The IDF did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

I don't believe that.

The evidence is overwhelming that it's true. Seriously.
Not that they didn't kill any innocents; not that things happened that shouldn't have, even war crimes; just that they did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

To prove that, you'd have to examine every other conflict in history. Otherwise a single counterexample would invalidate it. It seems rather a comprehensive statement to make.

Personally, the white phosphorous is all I need to see.
