8. "as most civilized Western nations do"
Is Israel Western? If it is, then why is it, and if it isn't, then why isn't it?

What are some examples of Western nations that aren't civilized? Are there any non-Western nations that aren't civilized?

Do all nations that sign on to international treaties fulfill their obligations under the treaties that they sign on to? If some nations sign on but don't fulfill their obligations, then how do they "escape international justice"?
