HRW Bias, Redux

HRW precisely wrong.jpg

Elder of Ziyon does an excellent job fisking the pattern of bias in "Precisely Wrong," a Human Rights Watch report castigating the IDF for the death of civilians in Cast Lead. The pattern, roughly, is this: accept "testimony" by Palestinian "witnesses" and ignore contradictory information from other sources, including the Palestinian Center for Human Rights and Hamas Web sites.

Sound familiar? It reminds us of 2006 HRW claims that no Hezbollah fighters had operated in Srifa, a southern Lebanese town attacked by Israel, despite evidence to the contrary in the New York Times.
