All I can say is it's about time a human rights group publicly says what the whole world knows already; Israel committed war crimes in Gaza. Amnesty also criticizes the role of the US in giving arms to Israel, and further urges an arms embargo against Israel. Amnesty also called for an arms embargo on Hamas, and I couldn't help but see CNN's coverage of this very issue. CNN claims that the report calls for an embargo on Israel and the Palestinians. The embargo call is on Israel for its use of white phosphorus and Hamas for its rockets, but nowhere does the report call on an arms embargo for Palestinians. What a ludicrous idea, but this is another way of CNN to demonize the Palestinians, even though they obviously are the victims.
