War Crimes in Gaza?

Amy Goodman's Interview with Kenneth Roth and John Dugard

Very insightful interview, which explains a key difference between war crimes commissions during war between two parties and committing war crimes as an occupying power.

Goldstone is Jewish and found Israel guilty of war crimes in 2008-09. Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch is also Jewish, and alleges that Israel is again committing war crimes. I am sure that the Israeli apologists will attack his findings as well, if only they were more visibly seen in our media in the US.

All we get to see on the mainstream networks (I am glad we have people like Amy Goodman!) are the apologists, like Sean Hannity or O'Reilly or Ron Dermer, or the proven liar Mark Regev or former aides to Netanyahu, or worst of all, the bought-and-paid-for Israeli puppet Lindsey Graham. Now that Israeli has committed war crimes for the second time in a handful of years, their supporters in the US will be scrambling to win the PR war by justifying all of this wanton death and destruction by invoking the words "terror" and "right to defend itself" and manufacturing a casus belli after the fact. The record is clear, tragic, and sad.
