of historical Palestine as a future Jewish state. Palestinian resistance through two intifadas, various wars, and the continued press for the enforcement of international law through the United Nations has placed Israel in a trying and difficult position with respect to its long-term legitimacy.

The question was very much in the public eye as the Spanish Civil War officially broke out during the same month as La Belle Équipe began shooting and vivid debates about intervention rose to prominence in the public sphere.13 France’s socialist Prime Minister Léon Blum had initially responded favourably to a request to sell arms to the Spanish Republic – sales that would have been legal under international law.

Although his claims were thoroughly rejected by Bremer, partly on the basis that he is not an attorney, Snow continued to talk about Guantanamo rather than the US PoWs held in Iraq: ‘Well, if these people are not prisoners of war you ought perhaps to try them for crimes.’ So although this interview provided Bremer with ample

great deal of critical reporting emerged as a consequence. The Gilligan/Kelly affair was just one of a number of media controversies over the government’s decision to invade Iraq in the years that followed.

In the latter case, in the face of long-standing criticism that the invasion had breached international law, the
