No Blind Spot for Hizbollah's War Crimes

Guardian Unlimited reports that Amnesty International has accused Hezbollah of War Crimes, as if it were a novelty, or unexpected?

“Hizbullah militants broke international humanitarian law during the recent conflict with Israel, an Amnesty International report concluded today.

The report said Hizbullah had violated law by firing thousands of rockets into Israel and killing dozens of civilians during the fighting.”

Amazing? Hizbollah hiding behind civilians? Hizbollah storing missiles in people’s houses? Deliberately starting a war? Kidnapping people or killing members of the IDF?

I think Amnesty International is brave for stating the bleeding obvious, but a bit little too late

The report is here

Still that will sure annoy the usual apologists for Hezbollah.
