Israeli human rights crusaders allege terrible crime by IDF soldiers

Al Jazeera reports: "An Israeli human-rights organisation has accused Israeli soldiers of killing innocent Palestinian civilians and lying about it.

"...According to B'tselem, 3269 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli army and paramilitary Jewish settlers since September 2000. About 1700 or just over half of these are believed to have been civilians, including 654 children."

It's the old good news/bad news: good that there are crusading Israelis who give a damn about justice for aboriginal people and will let the chips fall where they may... bad that they have to.

I wish that Saudi Arabia, Iran, Tibet, Chad, and dozens of other countries had their own version of B'tselem which could operate without fear of reprisal.
