1. guys...this moron is a jew!
2. Good

Lets see these people actually prove their claims in a court of law. Who wants to bet when push comes to shove that nothing comes of this? Or that it simply "hears" allegations as opposed to trying them.
4. Let them discuss until their jaws break
Talula ,   Israel   (01.14.09)
They weren't living under constant rocket fire. They don't have to deal with Hamas gunmen dressing as civilians, firing guns then running inside a houseful of civilians. They don't have to deal with the fact that Hamas are cowards and use schools to fire rockets from and children to take a bullet for them. They don't have to deal with any of it - they only get to judge our actions, which, naturally, we know will be unfair. So sod them all. No-one is going to take care of us. We've had to do that since forever, why stop now.
5. The New War.
Robert Bernier ,   Tel Aviv   (01.14.09)
The denial and inversion of law and history has singled out Israel for vilification applied to no other country. Scapegoated for crimes of which it is in fact the victim, Israel has become the Jew of the Western world. This is a victory for the Arabs in the new type of war in which they are engaged. Asymmetric warfare, whose principal battlefield is the mind, uses ostensibly powerless people (the Palestinians) who are in fact backed by powerful state actors (Iran). Such an inversion of strong and weak and the systematic use of deception are vital to the principal strategic goal of asymmetric warfare: to confuse and demoralise its victims and suborn world opinion to its cause as described at :
6. The first line of defense.
Robert Bernier ,   Tel Aviv   (01.14.09)
The war against Israel is not a war only against Israel. It is a war against the West. It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest. Although the public has wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the aggressor in reality, Israel is our first line of defense. If you still have doubts about Islam and jihad consult :
7. the first line of defense is offense
observer   (01.14.09)
attack the UN because of its disputed legitimacy which gave legitimacy to Israel's foundation.
8. Good, let's get it all out in the open
motti   (01.14.09)
Either Israel is a UN signatory or it is not. If it is, it must be held to account for its actions.
11. #7, how many times can this lie be propagated?
Danny   (01.14.09)
Israel exists for one and only one reason - it fought and won wars. The UN did not lift a single figure to help Israel... Maybe you have us confused with South Korea? Or Palestinians? Or Kuwait?
12. #8, I agree
Danny   (01.14.09)
lets see exactly how many of these claims have any basis whatsoever. We can also prepare war crimes tribunals against Hamas and Islamic Jihad. We can prepare libel trials against the BBC, CNN, C4, France2, The Times etc and hopefully bankrupt them. We can take personal libel suits against members of UNWRA and UNHCR and also make sure they spend the rest of their lives in a cardboard box. I will bet that not a single claim has be substantiated in the slightest and the vast majority turn out to be so brazen that vaguely competent, vaguely objective would immediately recognise their mendacity
13. typical
Bibo ,   haifa, Il   (01.14.09)
whenever israelis are accused of war crimes they start pointing fingers at everyone else but themselves. Blaming others of war crimes will not detract from the fact that israeli political and military leaders are suspected of committing war crimes. and that strain of criminality filters down to the lowest ranking soldier of the IDF.
14. The UN is a joke
Petra ,   usa   (01.14.09)
their sole purpose seems to destroy Israel. Meanwhile, their muslims brothers are raping and murdering women and children in Africa by the bus loads and the UN is silent. Move the un to Gaza. That's where their heart is anyway. These same muslims carry on like drunken whore house patrons when in New York and refuse to pay for their parking tickets.( or anything else) Lose the UN. Useless Nada.
