Just so we never get confused about the problematic political character of Human Rights Watch, its executive director Kenneth Roth said: “Yes, Hamas is at fault for encouraging protesters to rush the fortified Gaza border fences. Well entrenched Israeli snipers blithely played along by killing 58 of them. Which is the more severe crime?” There is so much objectionable about this but the worst is dehumanizing Palestinians as though they were lemmings throwing themselves against a fence when Hamas barks an order. To make a parity between unarmed peaceful protesters & snipers shooting them down is simply unspeakable. Shame on that stupid fool who presumes to understand human rights but dares not call out Israel for a massacre.
