Human Rights Watch is accusing the IDF of deliberately shooting at civilians during Cast Lead. The IDF says this is based on unreliable “evidence”, and HRW of course ignores Hamas’ use of human shields. People seem to be confusing war with war crimes. Civilians die in war, it happens, it’s not war crimes. These accusations come again and again, and every time we find evidence that indicates the IDF does not and has not deliberately killed civilians. NGO Monitor discredits the report. And this video, from the IDF youtube channel, shows Hamas’ true colours. I do not understand how, against this sort of evidence, people still believe the IDF has carried out stuff that they have no evidence for.
