Human Rights Watch reported that Hezbollah also fired Cluster munitions at Israeli civilian areas.Hardly surprising, but then comes this comment:
Whilst accusing the UK Press of ignoring what Israel did - even though phosphorus bombs are not illegal - it's quite telling that you completely ignore the behaviour of Hezbollah terrorists
Um, if you read the report carefully, you'll note that HRW's only source for that particular allegation is Israel. Not exactly credible.Although this claim is demolished by a later comment, I'm sure Human Rights Watch must love the respect they get from fellow 'activists' on UK Indymedia.
Up the road on Ireland Indymedia, in a separate report:
On Monday RTE made a major news report about what it claimed was the presence of Islamic cells linked to Al-Qaeda in Ireland. The source of the report was the US Government.Chutzpah: Indymedia dismissing the credibility of others.
The US Government is hardly a reliable source considering they have been shown to be liars time and time again in relation to reports made linking Iraq to weapons of mass destruction, Al Qaeda and the attacks on Pentagon World Trade centre. (sic)
Makes me sick when people are prepare to look the other way when it suits then.
Human rights are far all and old men watching their TV in Haifa/Qana aren't legal targets.
We need an international policethat will uphold human rights... but who the hell is going to sign up for it?
