The More Peace Negotiations, the More Palestinian Violence
Today was the worst day of rocket fire from Gaza since the aftermath of Israel's operation there last year. The BBC reports this under the following headline: Israel bombs tunnels as leaders talk peace. I spoof you not. Ah, and some of the shells shot by the Palestinians are phosphorous. As of this moment, the Twitter accounts of Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are silent on the matter. The last time HRW tweeted about Israel/Palestine was on Sept. 8th, when they condemned the conviction of a Palestinian activist by an Israeli court; the last time they had anything to say about the Palestinians was to condemn the murder of four Israelis on Sept 2nd. As for Amnesty International: I followed them backwards until August 12th. No condemnation of anything Palestinian, not even the murder of four Israeli civilians.
