OIC mulls Muslim peace-keepers, 'war crimes' trial for Israel
The Organisation of Islamic Conference is weighing the creation of a Muslim peace-keeping force for south Lebanon and demanding Israel be investigated for "war crimes" against civilians, OIC diplomats said on Thursday.

Delegates to an emergency special session of the OIC, hosted by chair Malaysia, say a draft communique now circulating would seek to place Muslim "Blue Helmets" under U.N. control.

It would also call for an inquiry into possible Israeli war crimes in its bombing campaign, now in its fourth week, against targets in southern Lebanon and Gaza.

At least 643 people in Lebanon, most of them civilians, and 56 Israelis have been killed in the conflict.

2. No it would not.
Israel is bound to become quite sensitized to the image problem.

3. I'll believe it when I see it.
Remember, that stuff's just 'Christian morality'. Yesha council of rabbis ruled that it doesn't and shouldn't apply to Jews, international law be damned (written by Christians like those damned Swiss and Swedes).
