    Not investigating an obvious crime is looking the other way. Even if the UN is directly looking at it.

    Who gave you that power?

    Fill us in.
    The Doggone War Crime Bone Burying Tribunal at the Hague, presented me with my warrant and certification. That, and I had to memorize the numerous conventions that govern war, so that I wouldn't commit a war crime myself. What I stated in that post, is covered by the Hague Conventions and the Geneva Conventions, both.

    That Russian construction "Donezk peoples popular republic" is not an UN member state and neither does anyone recognise it as one.
    Is that the UN, or Dutch's private investigation?

    When something is done about all the atrocities Hamas and similar orgs have done to Israel, THEN I will worry about whether Israel has done something that needs to be addressed.



    But oddly enough, the crickets tend to chirp at the UN when Hamas is attacking, and we hear very little until Israel tries to do something in self-defense.

    I don't feel qualified to judge whether war crimes have been committed
    , but I do think that it's a possibility which should be checked out.
    Neither is Navi Pillay.
    This is preposterous.
    She bitches about Israel not doing enough to protect civilians in Gaza.
    Warnings and leaflets ahead of time would normally be enough unless they weren't supposed to leave.
    Certainly more than warnings from daily visual sightings of dozens of rocket contrails.

    And another thing.
    Bad actors crying for the camera should be a clue as to what's really going on.

    I applaud Israel. It is truly amazing the restraint they've shown for so many years.

    They are the only nation in that region that wants peace with all. The rest want nothing short of the total destruction and slaughter of Israel and every Jewish person walking.

    For a people who arguably suffered the most in the last century, memory runs short.



    I have a lot of sympathy for the suffering that the Jewish people went through in the Holocaust, But I don't believe that we need to give Israel permission to do what others are not allowed to do.

    There has to be a limit.

    If they really wanted to just kill civilians, they would carpet bomb.
