This essay addresses the response of Avril McDonald and others to the behaviour of Israel's military during its 2006 bombing of Qana in Southern Lebanon, which was followed by further aggression in Gaza in 2008–2009. Recalling the responses of states to South Africa's military aggression in the 1980s, this short contribution reflects on Avril's scholarly contributions in order to find a "human face" through advancing international humanitarian law order to restrain Israel's military and to protect civilians.
