HRW gets something right, but not all

Human Rights Watch has issued a statement that the Hamas violated the "laws of war":
Gaza militants violated laws of war by launching hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians during last month’s fighting, Human Rights Watch said in a release Monday.

The Israeli military said 1,500 rockets were fired at Israel during the eight-day offensive against Gaza militants, including the first rockets from the Gaza Strip to strike the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas.

The rocket attacks killed three Israeli civilians and wounded dozens. Israeli assaults killed 169 Palestinians.
I'm not sure this news is entirely worth admiration. That the Hamas waged war at all is abominable and against the beliefs we'd assume HRW holds dear. The number of Israelis who died was at about 7, and the "palestinians" were mainly terrorists described incorrectly as civilians, and the death toll for them wasn't particularly high either. So HRW hasn't exactly shown a willingness to be respectable to the Israeli side, but merely stooping to moral equations.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
