Idiocy and extreme bias finally coming out of woodwork

Reader comment on item: Surprising Support for Israel, not Hamas

Submitted by Ben (United States), Jul 15, 2014 at 12:58

The fraudulently self-named, anti-West and anti-Israel, "human rights" organizations, are slowly coming out of their hiding places. The Christian Science Monitor's article, 7/15, questions only whether destroying militant homes is legal, and totally ignores the basis of the war, Hamas indiscrimate missile warfare, or that the death and destruction is effectively being caused by that group and could be ended by them.

Human Rights Watch, among the worst of the pseudo-human rights groups, and typically among the first to attack Israel, is dusting off the "dispropotionality" argument, and like other commercial media, are turning the war into a sport, where every article has a scoreboard headline. Referees that ignore violations like "human shields" and "aggression" would be fired.

The UN is also once again exposing their extreme bias in expressing "alarm," yet failing to condemn Hamas for firing missiles. Ban, like HRW, claims he is worried about the impact on Palestinian families, and does not condemn Hamas first and continual use of missiles. He knows and intentionally ignores the fact that Hamas itself is causing its own destruction and collateral damage.

However, like Hamas and HRW, he expects that playing the old "guilt card" against Israel will not be recognized for what it is, and has no shame: "The Secretary-General feels a sense of responsibility for the Palestinians who, especially in the Gaza Strip, have long been denied the sense of freedom and dignity that they deserve." Statements like that from any group, without a clear demand for the terrorist group to stop their terror immediately, has the effect of supporting their terrorism. The expressions of extreme bias and idiocy by those supporters is turning Israel into a sports arena. They are not interested in peace.
