On December 23, 2008, PCHR — funded by the EU, Ireland, Norway, the Netherlands, Denmark, and the leader of the anti-Israel lawfare movement — issued a statement condemning the “misuse” of weapons in Gaza.  According to PCHR, Qassam rockets were “misused” when they exploded prematurely causing injuries in Gaza.  Rather than condemn the launching of these indiscriminate weapons in terror attacks against Israeli civilians, this “human rights” organization “call[ed] …upon Palestinian resistance groups to be far away from [the Palestinian] civilian populated area when conducting military actions.”
