... now it's turning out that something was fishy at the beach

While sticking to its demand for the establishment of an independent inquiry into a blast on a Gaza beach 10 days ago that killed seven Palestinian civilians, the Human Rights Watch conceded Monday night for the first time since the incident that it could not contradict the IDF's exonerating findings.

Click me to read the rest of the article.

I doubt these new findings will be as widely reported as the pictures of the poor girl crying and screaming.

Garlasco's face is dripping with egg right now.

"We can't contradict the IDF's findings," but NOT "The IDF was right and we were hysterical biotches."

I honestly want to see people attacking the credibility of HRW and Amnesty every single time they are quoted somewhere - just as the HRW/Amnesty toadies attack Israel.

It's so sad - there is such a need for legitimate human rights organizations, but these two have degraded into biased one note operettas.

And I'd prefer Garlasco's face be decorated with a gag rather than dripping with egg.

As Dershowitz said about many so-called human rights when it comes to Israel, they are misnomers. They should be called "Palestinian rights" organizations. That's fine, because it tells us what they stand for. I don't have a problem with that. But if they were true human rights organizations, they'd also be just as concerned about Israeli civilian deaths, the 1000 rockets launched into Israel, and the suicide bombers, etc etc.

Some pay mere lip-service about it, but generally they are all essentially Palestinian human rights organizations with a clear agenda.

I agree, a true human rights organization is something the entire world could use. But for some reason they almost always become hightly politicized.
