Hamas leader admitting to using women and children as human shields



While the various international news organizations like the B.B.C., C.N.N., France 24, Sky and myriad local and national European media devote a great deal of toil, sweat, tears and blood to "exposing" the "evils" of Israel's "disproportionate" response to Hamas' eight year long campaign of terrorist rocket attacks on civilian populations in Israel, they seem either strangely and inexplicably unaware of the most public pronouncements of Palestinian political officials and religious leaders such as the ones stated in the video posted above, or they are so sympathic to the Palestinian goal of exterminating the Jews that such baldly proclaimed admissions of internationally recognized war crimes justify the ends.

We find it a bit odd that, like so many of her journalistic collegues, Ms. Sophie Claudet, a senior Middle East correspondent for France 24 television, has, to our knowledge, never printed, spoken or broadcast the slightest criticism of these declarations while finding quite a bit of energy to condemn Israeli military operations against internationally recognized terrorist organizations such as Hamas, conveniently "misremembering" that the Israel Defence Forces and their elite commando units actually telephone intended targets prior to an attack in order to enable the families to evacuate their houses before they are hit. Apparently, Ms. Claudet doesn't consider it quite sporting to extend the same warnings to Jews.

We are still waiting for the U.N., Amnesty International, the Red Cross, U.N.R.W.A., the E.U. and, of course, the B.B.C. or C.N.N. to describe or officially classify these acts of terror and the openly proclaimed policy of using civilians as human shields by Hamas as "war crimes".

And, given the U.N.'s past history of rape, pillage and plunder in Africa, the Balkans and other areas under its "protection", as well as the demonstrated sympathy of the Red Cross, Amnesty International and the E.U. for Mohammedan outrages, we certainly aren't going to hold our breath . . . .
