Gaza Report Reveals UN’s Cluelessness – Avi Issacharoff (Times of Israel)
The UN report on the 2014 Gaza war didn’t reveal any findings that weren’t already known, or expose any startling discoveries.
The bottom line, and most salient fact, is absent from this report: Israel did not initiate the war and was primarily focused on stopping Hamas rocket fire.
From nearly day one, Israel agreed to stop the fighting, but Hamas insisted on continuing the rocket fire from within residential areas, knowing that it would carry a heavy price and lead to international condemnation of Israel.
The report sounds at times like a bad joke, claiming that it “cannot conclusively determine the intent of Palestinian armed groups with regard to the construction and use” of cross-border tunnels.
