    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 think you miss the distinction that Hamas are not a "nation" and will ignore the conventions anyway.

    Shouldn't we hold Israel to a slightly higher standard of behavior?

    The bias the UNHRC shows towards Israel is so obvious that no intelligent person could possibly fail to notice, and relying on the say-so of representatives of an organization where half its members do not even meet the very most minimum standards for democracy is ridiculous. One might as well follow the suggestions of the KKK as they pertain to African Americans.


    The U.N. has been little but a mouthpiece for antisemitism for years. Any body of idiots that determines that "Zionism is Racism" like they did is worthess.
    Oh wait, I missed this one. We are at the screaming phase.

    OK, so the UN is anti-semitic and the Palestinians aren't human. I'm out.

    Who knows. Who knows if there will be an investigation into Israel as well.

    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.
    The UN makes it policy to accuse Israel of war crimes every single time they take military action to defend themselves... I don't even pay attention to them anymore.

    What I'd like to see every once in a while is the UN accuse Hamas of war crimes for hiding weapons in schools and using civilians as human shields.

    Israel can do what it wants. America will not let anyone hold them accountable.

    The only thing better than being the bully in the school yard is being the bully with the biggest big-brother.

    But I don't really care what Israel does to Palestinians. And I don't care what Palestine does to Israel.

    That's what I'm talking about. Give Hamas's crimes of deliberately targeting civilians while using their own civilians as shields a cursory mention so as to give the imprimatur of credibility, and then steer the conversation back to Israel as fast as humanly possible.

    So Israel should act like Hamas? What would differentiate them in that case?

    I never said the Palestinians aren't human. Nice try, though.

    If you lack the ability to understand the dynamics involved when huge majorities target a small minority, I would say that is your problem.
