Amnesty International says Palestinians committed war crimes by firing rockets into civilian areas and using people as human shields during the 2014 Gaza war

Amnesty International has concluded that Hamas committed war crimes during the 2014 Gaza conflict by firing rockets ‘indiscriminately’ at civilian areas and using non-combatants as human shields.

‘In launching these attacks, [Palestinian jihadis] displayed a flagrant disregard for international humanitarian law and for the consequences of their violations on civilians in both Israel and the Gaza Strip,’ said Philip Luther, Amnesty’s director for the Middle East and North Africa.

The report concluded that rocket attacks had killed six civilians in Israel, including a child. Other rockets aimed at the Jewish state fell short and killed at least 13 Palestinian civilians, 11 of them children, on the beach in Gaza, in an attack that was wrongly blamed on Israel…

Quite an admission from this group. Elder of Ziyon has a different take on it: New Amnesty report minimizes Hamas war crimes – and bashes Israel:

Even though the report unquestioningly states that Hamas shooting indiscriminate rockets at civilian areas are war crimes, it also accuses Israel of war crimes multiple times.

It has an entire section blaming Israel for not adequately providing shelters for hundreds of illegal Bedouin communities in the Negev.

    I already emailed one of my senators questioning whether or not Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have forfeited their tax-exempt status by lying about Israel.

      Since the Mosques get away with spewing Political messages on Friday’s and haven’t lost their Tax-exempt Status , don’t get your hopes up that this Leftists Progressive friendly group will be looked into and cut off.
      We just saw that news report about the Islamic school out West that gets $8,000,000.00 a year in Tax dollars while it refuses to have a GSA Group, this on top of teacher muslim youth to hate Canada and gays while they also must do their duty of Jihad to claim Canada for allah as a Caliphate run by sharia law. The Politicians fear upsetting muslims because they are seen as predisposed to riots and terrorism.

      It’s too bad the majority of Feminists and gays are too dense to see that the white male STR8 christians they have bashed for decades will be given the chance to convert to islam in an islamic state while THEY will be killed under Sharia Law even if thay are muslims .
      Might be interesting to see the faces of the men-haters and homofascists when the noose goes around their necks as they see that nobody is coming to help them .

        Many fine points…The Gays will admit: “when they came to throw Gays off buildings, those who could have helped me had all been enslaved by ISIS, beheaded or burned to death.”
        The time for Gays to oppose Islam is now.

    This is a first: Shamnesty International attacking “Palestine.”

      The Pally crimes are so obvious, no one can reasonably ignore them. Using human shields and targeting civilians is a war crime. Attacking Jews in a synagogue is another obvious crime. Running down civilians at a bus stop is a crime.

      My thoughts exactly. What a shocker coming from Amnesty International. The British Brainwashing Channel (BBC) still hasn’t progressed and instead talks about Gaza’s grand piano :
      I don’t know. Is that their way of showing the white flag?!

  • eMan14

    At least they have partially told the truth. And we can use that info at least.

  • Gary

    I still think that those masks are so their buddies at CUPE, NDP, TTC , OPSEU , Calgary Mayor , and Calgary Police Chief won’t recognize them and know where they took their holidays .

    I’m sure the united church will cut ties with amnesty inter. over this.

      It must be giving them a case of the vapors.

    That’s nice, AI…please try harder to keep up with the rest of the group…

    Arabs are basically cowards and will fight any dirty way they can think of in order to win.
