B’tselem, in a January 16 statement, condemned the murder of Carlos Andrés Muscara Chávez, a 21 year old Kibbutz volunteer and visitor to Israel from Ecuador.  He was killed by a Palestinian sniper as he worked in a potato field (video footage of the attack can be viewed here). B’tselem’s statement dismissed Palestinian terror groups’ argument that (in B’tselem’s words) “all means are legitimate in fighting for independence against a foreign occupation,” insisting to the contrary that, “Attacks aimed at civilians undermine all rules of morality and law.” The murder was not condemned by other NGOs claiming to promote universal human rights and international law.
