Palestinians React to HRW Report
So Human Rights Watch finally does the right thing and labels Palestinian suicide bombings as war crimes.
To nobody’s surprise, the HRW report has provoked a reaction from the Palestinians that exhibits the winning combination of raging paranoia, murderous intent, and propensity for outrageous lying that has endeared them to so many Europeans and NGOs: PA rejects rights group report about suicide bombers. The Palestinian Authority says everything is Israel’s fault.
A top advisor to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat condemned the report by the US-based Human Rights Watch, arguing that Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip was behind suicide bombings.
“We strongly criticize the report’s content, especially those passages that say the president (Arafat) and the PA bear the responsibility,” for suicide attacks, Nabil Abu Rudeina told AFP. Abu Rudeina noted Friday that “the occupation is entirely responsible for everything that occurs and it must be ended.”
“We demand that Human Rights Watch also criticize the occupation, which leads to those (suicide) operations and criticize the Jenin and Rafah massacres caused by that very occupation,” he added.
You mean like they did in the last 274 reports?
The Islamozoids, on the other hand, don’t bother trying to blame or justify. You almost have to admire their psychotic single-mindedness as they launch straight into the Jew-hate. Almost.
Hamas and Islamic Jihad also slammed the rights watchdog. HRW’s “way of thinking is Zionist and one-sided,” charged Islamic Jihad official Mohammed al-Hindi. “The report speaks the same language as (Israeli Prime Minister Ariel) Sharon and the Israeli extremists,” he said.
A top Hamas spokesman described the report as “exactly biased toward the Zionist enemy.” “It omits every crime committed by Israel” against the Palestinians, said Abdelaziz Rantissi, adding that he saw “a suspect Zionist hand” in this report.
