There is nothing new in the non-story repeating Amnesty International’s latest charges against Israel (“Amnesty: Israel and Palestinians need to own up to war crimes,” July 8).

Your article mentions Amnesty’s allegation that Israel failed to investigate the “hundreds of serious violations, including war crimes, documented by human rights groups.” But neither Amnesty nor the other rights groups have “documented” anything other than their extreme bias against Israel. The only evidence they provide pertains to their own lack of rigor and methodology, the erasure of terror in Gaza, their ignoring of inconvenient evidence and their naïve view of Hamas as being interested in abiding by international law and investigating violations.
