The Guardian's investigation into alleged Israeli war crimes- video report

Posted by Christian  |  at  24.3.09

The Guardian has released a video report of an investigation they conducted in gaza looking into alleged war crimes perpetrated by the most moralest army in the world.

As evidence mounts with last weeks revelations by IDF members that palistinian civilians were killed under permissive rules, it is getting more and more difficult to claim these are just "isolated incidents".

This is more than merely one or two rogue soldiers acting out. This is about civilians being killed by unmanned drones, medics being shot at - wounded or killed as they tried to recover the injured. The more than 50 hospitals and clinics damaged by israeli bombs, the use of an eleven year old as a human shield. So please, enough with the moral superiority complex.

GENEVA – Israeli soldiers used an 11-year-old Palestinian boy as a human shield during the war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, U.N. human rights experts said Monday.

The Israeli Defense force ordered the boy to walk in front of soldiers being fired on in the Gaza neighborhood of Tel al-Hawa and enter buildings before them, said the U.N. secretary-general's envoy for protecting children in armed conflict.

The boy also was told to open the bags of Palestinians — presumably to protect the soldiers from possible explosives — before being released at the entrance to a hospital, Radhika Coomaraswamy said.

She said the Jan. 15 incident, after Israeli tanks had rolled into the neighborhood and during "intense operations," was a violation of Israeli and international law.
