HRW Presses Goldstone Campaign, Ignores Exposés

HRWs sixth report on the Gaza War, Turning a Blind Eye is another example of the obsessive focus on Israel, and presses HRWs campaign on behalf of the Goldstone report. The publication is premised on speculation and charges that go beyond HRWs research capacity. Despite his resignation, HRW repeats Marc Garlascos allegations as if they were credible and uncontested. The report also reflects the ideological bias of the MENA Division. HRW fellow Arezo Yazd contributed to Turning a Blind Eye, and refers to [Israeli] state-sponsored terrorism and the Apartheid Wall.

Absolutely Wrong: Analysis of HRW report, "Precisely Wrong: Gaza Civilians Killed by Israeli Drone-Launched Missiles," 30 June 2009

In Precisely Wrong: Gaza Civilians Killed by Israeli Drone-Launched Missiles, HRW uses the term war crimes 7 times, and the alleged attacks are termed unlawful. The case is entirely speculative, but the conclusions are stated with absolute assurance, as if the evidence was totally clear. HRW emphasizes pseudo-technical and unfounded legal. Credible and verifiable evidence is not provided. Military experts challenged HRWs claims and assumptions about weapons and drones. The text appears to reflect the authors lack of significant battlefield experience, particularly related to split-second decision making.
