Learning from Human Rights Watch
I am no particular fan of Human Rights Watch, nor its executive director, Kenneth Roth, about whom it can be demonstrated and documented that their reports are not always accurate, and rather often are slanted. Still, when in Haaretz this morning he explains that it would have been better had the IDF tried to learn from his organization's report on the war in Lebanon last year rather than try to explain away all the evidence collected about Israeli wrong-doing, he is, unfortunately, right, and the IDF people are wrong. Not something I'm proud about.
