NGO Monitor

An excellent website, often described by the liberal left as “far right”. Try this article, from which I publish an excerpt:

These NGO claims misstate the law as it applies to Israel and deliberately ignore violations by Hamas. Under article 51(7) of the First Protocol of the Geneva Conventions, civilians “shall not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations, in particular in attempts to shield military objectives from attacks or to shield, favour or impede military operations.” Hamas is in direct violation of this rule, yet few if any NGOs mention it.

    And in using civilians to shield attacks, Hamas makes them legitimate military targets. This makes Hamas guilty of a war crime, but you’ll never hear them accused of it, much less prosecuted, by the U.N. (or anyone else for that matter).

      Well the basic theme is the “Innocent Victim” against the “Monstrous Empire” in the media. Anything which contradicts that has a hard time getting heard.
