UN Condemns Israel's Latest War Crime: Not Sharing Iron Dome with Hamas
breitbart ^ | 7/31/14 | Thomas Rose

Posted on 08/01/2014 10:30:59 AM PDT by Nachum

The UN's top human rights official again condemned Israel for its military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, accusing the Jewish state of “deliberately defying International Law... in a way that may constitute war crimes.”

Navi Pillay told reporters following yet another "emergency" meeting of the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council that Israel was not doing enough to protect civilians. "There is a strong possibility,” said the known Israel critic, “that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes.”

Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the "governing authority" of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.

The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel's Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," she said.

Just because Hamas fires rockets indiscriminately aimed at Israeli civilian population centers without provocation and fires them from within its own population centers does not “absolve” Israel from its own legal violations, Pillay told reporters Thursday.

I’m sorry here. The person or persons who made this ‘connection,’ claim or demand just needs to be stood up side of a wall and shot. Ain’t no helping them much less listening to them.

Keep in mind that the current (Black) ruling class in South Africa HATES Israel because it collaborated with the previous (White) ruling class on things like weapons systems. Including nukes.

So Israel is committing a war crime because they aren't shooting down Hamas missiles before they kill Hamas supporters?

Here's an idea. Stop firing the missiles.

And if Israel turned “off” their Iron Dome for a couple of days, the UN, media, Left, etc. would say it is Israel’s fault that Israeli civilians were hit by incoming missiles from Gaza. “You had the technology to keep them safe and didn’t!”

How can parodists like John Semmens keep up with the UN?

I'm trying to figure out if the UN wants Israel to extend Iron Dome protection to shoot down Hamas' misfired rockets which will hit Gaza or to shoot down Israel's own aircraft? Because they can't mean just giving Iron Dome missiles to Hamas which would just try to fire them as surface to surface missile against Israeli civilians or strip the warheads to be used as suicide bombs.

The suggestion that Israel give any high tech Anything, much less a high tech WEAPON is what one would expect from a Turd World oriented UN Person.

Hamasimians and Palisimians can’t even cope with motorbikes.

Doubt me? Pull up on Youtube “Why God Gave Them Camels”.

Ummmm....doesn’t the Iron Dome use ROCKETS?

Probably shouldn’t give those to Hamas.

I'm gettin' SO tired of these world idiots and their 'say anything to advance their argument' I could just scream. They're like arguing with a three-year-old democrat. But, but, but, ad infinitum, ad nauseum. ENOUGH! FIGHT! Then, either win, or lose, but SHUT UP ABOUT IT!

Ow, my head...

They're going after war criminals, eh?

'Bout time.

The press allowed Bill Clinton to commit war crimes against the people of Serbia

"Serbia did not pose any threat to the U.S. . . . the liberal media never once questioned Clinton's motives nor do they to this day . . . Bill Clinton convinced NATO to join in the fight against the people of Serbia . . .The air-war . . . targeted civilians . . . schools, hospitals, churches, office buildings, and private homes. They even bombed a nature park! In Belgrade, all three bridges which spanned the Danube were destroyed. They knocked out power and water to the Serbs. The bombing went on for 79 days."

As I recall, bombing civilians was deliberate and meant to force them to oust their leader who had refused to resign. Clinton and Albright could not get him to resign so they "had" to bomb the civilians.

Belgrade bombing defying bill clinton and albright

And we should have made A-bombs for Japan and delivered them before we used ours.

It is also unfair that we didn’t provide them with RADAR.

Why didn’t Hamas mathematics professors at one of their Universities invent it for themselves?

If it was 1945—the UN would want us to give the A-Bomb to Japan and Germany just to make it fair.
