Shame on Louis Arbour....
She sees moral equivalence between Israel and Hezbollah.
Jurist, the legal news website, reports that Ms. Arbour, a former Canadian Supreme Court Justice and war crimes prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia issued a "pointed" statement aimed directly at the two combatants and their leaders.The plain fact of the matter is that Israel IS showing significant restraint - both in their intent and in their actions. Could you imagine the civilian casualties if Israel showed no restraint? If they cut off the water supply? If they wouldn't let in humanitarian aid (like they are doing in Gaza).
"Indiscriminate shelling of cities constitutes a foreseeable and unacceptable targeting of civilians. Similarly, the bombardment of sites with alleged military significance, but resulting invariably in the killing of innocent civilians, is unjustifiable. International humanitarian law is clear on the supreme obligation to protect civilians during hostilities. This obligation is also expressed in international criminal law, which defines war crimes and crimes against humanity. International law demands accountability. The scale of the killings in the region, and their predictability, could engage the personal criminal responsibility of those involved, particularly those in a position of command and control."
