Robert Fox: Diplomacy for Israel-Gaza is failing badly, for now

Other than the hard-headed politics of self-interest throughout the area, diplomacy stutters, for different Twenty first-century causes. First, a lot of the lingo of the diplomats, and the commentariat, appears oddly quaint. There may be discuss of “rights to defend oneself and one’s individuals”, “proportionality” and “equivalence”. These counsel that retaliation for an unwarranted act of aggression, just like the October 7 pogrom, must be “in proportion”. Alongside this there may be an thought that there’s “equivalence” in harm to at least one lot of civilians in redress for an assault on one other. These are notions which might be out of step with the occasions.
