Speaking the Truth

 

Nine Israeli human rights groups called on Wednesday for an investigation into whether Israeli officials had committed war crimes in Gaza since tens of thousands of civilians there have nowhere to flee, the health system has collapsed, many are without electricity and running water, and some are beyond the reach of rescue teams.

Commendable action by the Israeli groups. They had the courage to speak the truth rather than repeating the lies of their government of protecting Israel against Hamas. Despite Hamas' actions against Israel this is a disproportionate reaction lacking any justification.
