May 28 1961: Amnesty International was founded

Principled BDS activists have been the subject of mass kidnappings

Can there be any other explanation for why the BDS activists are not protesting in the streets against these summary executions by Hamas other than mass kidnappings.

What else is stopping them from protest against these flagrant human rights violations and calling for boycotts, disinvestment and sanctions against the Gaza Strip? Kudos to Amnesty International for finally putting out this report.

Still further evidence of mass kidnappings of peace activists

Publishing this report during the Gaza war rather than many months later might have left Amnesty International with the semblance of impartiality.

According to UN data, more than 4,800 rockets and 1,700 mortars were fired from Gaza towards Israel between 8 July and 26 August. Around 224 projectiles are believed to have struck Israeli residential areas.

It does not take months to work out that rockets and mortars fired at civilian areas with the deliberate intention of killing civilians and terrorising the Israeli population are in contravention of the international rules of war. The sound of air raid sirens and civilian casualties in Israel should have been sufficient evidence for an immediate report by Amnesty International last year.

The only explanation as to why peace activists aren’t out in the street today protesting against Hamas for these war crimes and calling for International Criminal Court indictments and citizen’s arrests is mass kidnappings.

There is no other charitable explanation as to why they are not on the streets today in solidarity, for example, with the above 2009 peace demonstration in London. The 2014 Gaza conflict left a total of at least 2,189 Palestinians dead, including more than 1,486 civilians, according to the UN. On the Israeli side, 67 soldiers were killed along with the six civilians.

Whose side is the peace movement on when it condemns warnings to civilians to evacuate immediately?

The clip shows the small missile that strikes a building as a warning to get out.

This “knock on the roof” technique has been condemned by Amnesty International’s Philip Luther:

“There is no way that firing a missile at a civilian home can constitute an effective ‘warning’. Amnesty International has documented cases of civilians killed or injured by such missiles in previous Israeli military operations on the Gaza Strip,” said Philip Luther.
