Amnesty International Speaks out

against the illegal actions and war crimes of ... wait for it, wait for it ... Israel.

Was there ever any doubt?

Snapped Shot has a great fisking of the AI report.

The most telling statement from the report:
"The briefing does not cover in any detail the broader implications of the bombing campaign. ... Nor does it address the attacks by Hezbollah into Israel and their impact on civilians – these are being addressed elsewhere."
Cuz' honestly, why would you ever want to discuss the fact that the basis for the attacks your are condemning was that a sovereign nation was attacked by a recognized terrorist organization which operates quite openly, in direct violation of UN sanctions, and with a great deal of support from the local population. I guess in AI world they figured that would just cloud the issue of just how bad the Israelis were.

Guess we'll just have to chalk this one up to yet another 'human rights' organization that makes the attempt to convict Israel of imagined war crimes (based almost entirely upon emotional appeals) while effectively giving the perpetrators of actual demonstratable war crimes (that would be Hezbollah with their ball bearing laden rockets and use of human shields for those not paying attention) a walk.
