Louise Arbour once again....

Gee, you'd think she'd say something about the rockets being fired into Israel on a daily basis...
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour on Friday urged Israel to exercise restraint in its dealings with the Hamas-led Gaza Strip.

In a statement voicing concern at Israel's decision on Wednesday to declare Gaza a "hostile territory," Arbour said that reducing fuel and power to the tiny territory would place an "unbearable burden" on its 1.5 million people.

The former United Nations war crimes prosecutor and Canadian Supreme Court judge also condemned the indiscriminate firing of rockets into Israel by Palestinian militants in Gaza.

Arbour reminded Israel of its obligations under international humanitarian and human rights law not to use disproportionate means or resort to collective punishment.

Gaza had already paid a "heavy price" from daily violence, isolation and deprivation, she said
And, if Gazans have paid a 'heavy price', whose fault is that???? Certainly not the Israelis. Arbour is a fool - certainly not Canada's best.
