Israelische NGO weerspreekt Goldstone

Een Engelse journalist werd een maand in Gaza gevangen gehouden.
Onlangs werd hij vrij gelaten.
Hij wilde een reportage maken die Hamas niet zinde.
Hij vertelt achteraf dat journalisten in Gaza wel uitkijken wat zij rapporteren en dat blijkt dus terecht.
Dit moet je bij de NOS niet zeggen, want dan ontploffen ze van verontwaardiging.
Hun contacten in Gaza zijn 100% betrouwbaar.
Hoe ze dat kunnen weten? Geen idee.
Maar ook de VN en met name de commissie Goldstone, zal de werkelijkheid niet erkennen.
De NGO: The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center onderzocht de bevindingen van de Goldstone-commissie.
En kwam tot opmerkelijke bevindingen:
Tijdens de Gazaoorlog werden kinderen door Hamas gebruikt om weg te komen van gevechtszones.
Moskeeen, scholen en ziekenhuizen werden als wapenopslagplaatsen gebruikt
Er werden booby traps in scholen gelegd en militanten verkleedden zich ter plekke in burgerkleding en begaven zich zo in de gevechten met de Israelische soldaten.
Deze NGO zegt dat 60% van de omgekomenen activist/strijder was en in de strijd omkwam.
Inderdaad: nogal een ander verhaal dan in het Goldstone-rapport te lezen is.

Israeli NGO: Hamas 'used civilians as human shields' in Gaza

Goldstone report showed 'systematic pro-Palestinian bias', says Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.
Hamas used Palestinian civilians as human shields during last year's Gaza war, according to a study published Monday by the Israeli non-governmental orgainzation the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.

The NGO says the 500-page document aims to highlight the "failings" of the UN's Goldstone report into Israel's three week Gaza offensive last year, which accused both Israel and Hamas of war crimes.

Both the Israel Defense Forces and the Shin Bet security service, which had declined to testify in the Goldstone inquiry, provided evidence for the study, which also drew on interrogations of Hamas militants and information from the Hamas-run media, as well documents seized by Israel during the offensive.
In its findings, the ITIC claimed Hamas fighters used children to mask their escape from combat zones.

The study says that Hamas used mosques, hospitals and schools as to store weapons and as rocket launch sites. Militants also booby-trapped a school and exchanged their uniforms for civilian clothing during fighting with Israeli troops.

The UN report, compiled by retired South African judge Richard Goldstone, was a "conscious attempt to serve a central, premeditated thesis", the ITIC said, accusing the UN of a "complete lack of balance" and "systematic pro-Palestinian bias".

According to the ITIC, most of the 1,166 Palestinians killed during Operation Cast Lead were Hamas fighters.

"At least 60 percent of the casualties were terrorist operatives actively engaged in the fighting," it said.

Goldstone's report, in contrast, estimated the portion of fighters killed at 20 per cent, with the remainder civilians.

The report did not examine Israeli actions during the fighting, which were severely criticized by Goldstone, instead concentrating on Hamas in an effort to contrast "the main findings of the Goldstone report with the factual findings".
