Analysis: US bombing of Afghan hospital may help Israel face its own demons

On October 3, a US AC-130 gunship turned a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, into a crater, killing at least 30 civilians, including personnel from Doctors Without Borders.

From a war crimes perspective, one can hardly imagine a more serious targeting incident, and the shocking story behind the incident might suggest that the US blunder will suddenly make Israel look less bad comparatively in dealing with some of its alleged war crimes.

But war crimes are a legal category, not a general public feeling after viewing horrifying pictures of the attack, and the devil is in the details.
