Suffer the little children

In this NPR report, a 14 year old boy and an 8 month old baby are hospitalized with severe burns. They are in Tyre, Lebanon trying to comply with Israel's threats to leave or be killed.

As the reporter says, leaving is a very dangerous proposition, as Israeli jets are clearly targeting vehicles. (There is more here, from the Guardian.)

Wonder where on the spectrum of "civilianality" Professor Dershowitz would put an 8 month old and a 14 year old. I'm assuming the teenager is probably more culpable than the infant, in his moral universe. Which is a place I hope never to so much as visit.
