Dead Babies and the Latest News from 'Israeli Rights Watch'

Human Rights Watch tries to equalize the sides when Palestinians die at a 1000 to 1 ratio to Israelis.

People are angry over Israel's assault on Gaza's civilian population which Israel bombs into oblivion periodically.
People are angry over Israel's assault on Gaza's civilian population which Israel bombs into oblivion periodically. Israel killed this 11-month old baby boy; his father Jihad Masharawi is a BBC journalist.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) - This is how Human Rights Watch writes about the merciless brutal overextended attack on Gaza's civilians who are one thing: victims of Genocide and war crimes by Israel.

Who are they to write:

    "Israeli forces and Palestinian armed groups in Gaza need to take all feasible precautions to minimize harm to civilians as hostilities between the two sides intensify.

    Palestinian rocket attacks into civilian areas violate the laws of war prohibition against targeting civilians, and Israel should ensure it is only targeting military objects, Human Rights Watch said.

    A rocket launched by an armed group killed three Israeli civilians on the morning of November 15, 2012. Strikes by Israeli forces on November 10 and 14 killed at least nine civilians in Gaza."

I started to republish their article before realizing that this is more Israeli propaganda; the words are in stark contrast compared to what is taking place.

Sure the Palestinians are firing rockets, of course. The people of Gaza live surrounded by Israeli guard towers and military ships, they force Palestinians to live by a different set of laws, and Gaza is the only free part of Palestine.

The Israelis regularly bomb civilian targets and then they block the import of rebuilding material, no constriction in Gaza takes place without salvaging material.

Omar Masharawi

Death of a Gaza Journalist's Infant

An Israeli missile strike on Gaza on Wednesday left an aching hole in the home and hearts of the family of 11-month-old Omar Masharawi, who was fatally burned all over his little body.

“My children are not terrorists. They are not devils. They are good people,” said Ali Masharawi, 55, the grandfather of baby Omar, who was killed along with Ali Masharawi’s 20-year-old daughter-in-law, Hiba al-Turk. Ahmad, one of Ali’s sons, was also seriously injured.

Baby Omar, the son of Jihad Masharawi, a BBC staffer in Gaza, is one of several children killed since intensive Israeli bombardment began on Wednesday, including Hanin Tafish, a 10-month-old girl.

The missile hit the Masharawi family home in southern Gaza City shortly after Israel shattered a tenuous ceasefire on Wednesday by carrying out the extrajudicial execution of Hamas military commander Ahmad al-Jabari. The killing of al-Jabari and his bodyguard sparked the current spate of retaliatory rocket fire by Palestinian factions amid round-the-clock Israeli airstrikes.

“I have always been peaceful and I even worked in Israel during my youth, but now I feel I want to explode,” Masharawi said at a condolence reception in Gaza City.

Israel has been trying to kill this population off since 1948, they are illegal and immoral and they are terrorists, not the poor people with their unguided rockets. The Israelis and their backers - those are the terrorists.

So you can go read about how Human Rights Watch is trying to take the first three Israeli civilians deaths in many years and make that be on a parallel with Israel's wanton slaughter, well fuck that.

If you want to read the HRW report the link is below, they are not there for humanity, they are there to make sure anything they report about Israel is balanced, in fact they are very far out of balance. It isn't like they are not doing good things, but I detect a real lack of fairness.

Here is the thing, Israel and their U.S. media servants talk about the Gaza rockets like they are a really big deal. Well, until these latest three, all of 28 or 29 Israelis have died from these attacks. Now the number of dead Israelis is 31 or 32. Israel has killed almost that many Palestinian children alone in this latest attack.
