Skip to comments.Human Rights Watch condemns "Israeli aggression"
Posted on 08/05/2006 10:58:04 AM PDT by pabianice
Fox's Brian Wilson just interviewed a representative from Human Rights Watch. The HRW guy immediately launched into a high-pitched tirade against "Israeli aggression," and Israel's alleged "random and excessive violence against civilians," and its "destruction of Lebanon." When Wilson asked this guy why he wasn't also condemning the Hezbollah savages, the spokestwerp replied that HRW was also unhappy with Hezbolla's rocketing Israeli civilians but that was understandable when considering Israel's actions...
This continues the incoherent and suicidal actions of the US Left -- largely composed of my fellow Jews -- in its attempt to destroy Jews. Psychotic.
I took the time to send an E-Mail to Brian pointing out that if Israel wanted to deliberately target civilians, the death toll would be in the tens of thousands, not the hundreds, because Lebanon has no air defense. I also pointed out that Mr. Abraham was a dolt.
I watched it also and I didn't hear the HRW guy say that it was "understandable when considering Israel's actions." He did focus only on Israel but I don't remember him excusing Hezbollah as you have stated.
Ah, let's pile on the loser anyway.
One side is a legitimate state, a rare democracy in the middle east. The other side, a terrorist organization, wearing no uniforms, cowardly blending with the civilian population while also using them as shields and their dead for propaganda. Why anyone has to even think about which side to be on is beyond me.
Everyone does realize that hezbollah started this whole thing right?
where in the hell do they get these idiots?WOT is not in their vocabulary and that is not all that is missing.
1. Well, duh. Hezb'allah uses human shields. They hide in civilian areas specifically for the purpose of taking as many innocents with them as possible when Israel lobs an arty shell at one of their launchers.
2. Striking areas with no apparent military target is Hezb'allah's standard operating procedure. But I see that Human Rights Watch is nonetheless directing the bulk of its vitriol at Israel.
3. Remember how terrorists use unwilling human shields? They do that precisely so that useful idiots like Human Rights Watch will carry their propaganda water for them.
Reminds me of the description in the old testament, where the different tribes of Israel were at war with each other.
HRW is looking to get today's top "Terrorist Water Carrier" award. If I knew how to do a photoshop...
As for me, I'd like to introduce all those who support terror to Mr. Smith and Mr. Wesson.
"Question; why are people who know and understand what is happening in the Middle East still supporting left-wing Democrats?"
It is a mental illness.
you are right....HRW also excoriated the Hezzies too...God I hate bias reporting....on the left or the right...I hate HRW..but this guy only reported what he wanted....and NOT the facts.....with said...keep bombing....
HRW's Mr. Abrahams should be ashamed that he has gone against his own people....shame shame shame .....
All his info came after the fact and from Lebanese sources, not quite neutral. The reported numbers of civilian deaths seem to have little credibility. Pray tell , how does one distinguish a terrorist from a civilian since they wear no uniform of any type and are indistinguishable from civilians. Maybe we should require that they carry Hizbollah ID cards.
Right. He did not say that. He said Hezbollah was guilty of war crimes.
Human Rights Watch...where gay members of the Clinton administration go to redecorate.
I asked Pastor why the Israeli response has been documented but the primary action is lost/ignored.
As I remember it, Hamas kidnapped an Israeli teenager and murdered him. Then two Israeli soldiers were killed and more kidnapped.
Where's Hizbollahs dog in this hunt?
Of course if Jews are not human as Ahmedajam (sic-o) explains then maybe we should just turn our back on this "situation".
No mention of the heinous war crime of Hiz launching attacks from amidst civilians.
This is what kills me about the left nowadays. They rail that the Geneva Conventions should apply to non-uniformed combatants. And then ignore the fact that the Geneva Conventions prohibit launching attacks from civilian locations. In other words, they are rank hypocrites.
