"Under hard questioning by CNN's Paula Zahn, the Israeli foreign ministry spokesman descended into double-talk about the use of phosporous weapons burning the flesh of Lebanese children, as shown on footage from Beirut hospitals.
The Israeli repeatedly refused to answer Zahn's clear question - does Israel use phosporous weapons? Instead he claimed that Israeli weaponry is consistent with accepted standards.
As with the American use of phosporous in Falluja, the implication is that phosphorous if intended as a smoke-causing agent is legal. But the televised image of the burned baby overpowered the dissembling answers."
