Amnesty Caught Lying About Israel - Again

This dispatch from Amnesty International's bizarro world via Reuters:

Amnesty International said on Thursday Israel inflicted "wanton destruction" in the Gaza Strip in attacks that often targeted Palestinian civilians during an offensive in December and January in the Hamas-run enclave.

Among other conclusions, Amnesty said it found no evidence to support Israeli claims that Gaza guerrillas deliberately used civilians as "human shields," but it did, however, cite evidence that Israeli troops put children and other civilians in harm's way by forcing them to remain in homes taken over by soldiers.

{isn' that the safest spot - inside a house that won't be target by "friendlies" - in a war zone? Unless Amnesty feels that Hamas is justified in assaulting Isreali-occupied homes w/Palestinian children in them, but Isrealis cannot target terrorist-occupied homes with children in them. Contradiction, anyone?}

The report ....dismissed Israeli claims that Hamas had used Palestinian civilians as "human shields."
Amnesty said it found no evidence that "Hamas or other armed groups forced residents to stay in or around buildings used by fighters, or that fighters prevented residents from leaving buildings or areas which had been commandeered by militants."

You want evidence, *ssholes? Well, let's go to the videotape - 2009, live from Hamas-controlled Gaza:

Doesn't look like Amnesty tried to hard to look for evidence of Palestinian crimes; but that's to be expected. They are an accessory to anti-Semitism and allies of Hamas, nothing more.

Maybe someone from Reuters would be interested in picking up this video to show, you know, both sides of the story? Or are they too indebted to their anti-Isreali storyline to care about little things like the truth?
