Likud Chairman and Opposition Leader Binyamin Netanyahu defended Israel against the suggestion that it may be committing war crimes, saying "If Israel is guilty of war crimes, then Winston Churchill is the greatest war criminal." He reminded his CNN interviewer that when Nazi Germany attacked England in World War II, then-prime minister Churchill responded with an "indiscriminant" assault on German cities. He also downplayed the extent of the Israeli offensive, saying that "it may be many things, but it ain't massive."
