    Israeli war crimes?

    Stardate 6268.30

    Amnesty International has accused Israel of war crimes against the people of Lebanon for their aerial bombardment of civilian areas and infrastructure. The month long bombing campaign killed approximately 1,183 people, mostly civilians (one third children), injured 4,054 and displaced 970,000 from their homes.

    The human rights group said initial evidence, including the pattern and scope of the Israeli attacks, high number of civilian casualties, widespread damage and statements by Israeli officials "indicate that such destruction was deliberate and part of a military strategy, rather than `collateral damage.'''

    UPDATE - As a side note, this very report also blames Hezbollah for war crimes for the same reasons. I really should have mentioned it, but then the press made a pretty big deal out of how many rockets they launched into Israel every day.

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
