The bit about the "same copied text" makes it clear that they many people copied the HR mails. which means they did receive legit criticism. and they choose rather to play on the petty stuff.

Do you think da mudda fukkas at the Mail & Guardian will print the following, or quietly ignore it?

Amnesty International has accused Hezbollah of "serious violations of international humanitarian law, amounting to war crimes" during the recent Lebanese war.

In a report published in London today, the human rights group condemned the "deliberate targeting" of Israeli civilians by Hezbollah.

The report states that 43 civilians, including seven children, were killed in these Hezbollah attacks.

Responding to Amnesty International, Hezbollah had argued that its rocket attacks on northern Israel were a reprisal for Israeli attacks on civilians in Lebanon and were aimed at stopping such attacks.

In its report Amnesty rejects the Hezbollah claim by pointing out that international law forbids the targeting of civilians and reprisals.

During the month-long conflict, Hezbollah fired nearly 4,000 rockets into northern Israel, killing 43 civilians, seriously injuring 33 others and forcing hundreds of thousands of civilians to take refuge in shelters or flee, the report said.

Approximately a quarter of all rockets were fired directly into urban areas, including rockets packed with thousands of metal ball bearings.

"The scale of Hezbollah's attacks on Israeli cities, towns and villages, the indiscriminate nature of the weapons used, and statements from the leadership confirming their intent to target civilians make it all too clear that Hezbollah violated the laws of war," Amnesty International's Secretary General Irene Khan said in a comment on the report.

"The fact that Israel has also committed serious violations in no way justifies violations by Hezbollah. Civilians must not be made to pay the price for unlawful conduct on either side."

Combined with its earlier publication on Israel's targeting of Lebanese civilian infrastructure, the latest findings underlined the urgent need for the United Nations to establish a full and impartial investigation into violations committed by both sides.

The Amnesty report on Israel was severely criticized in Israel and by Jewish groups abroad, who accused the human rights organization of bias. These same critics maintain that Amnesty should have waited and issued the two reports simultaneously.

Haaretz learned that the decision on the timing of the reports' release was made in London, which did not please officials of Amnesty at the Israel office.

The director of the Amnesty International office in Tel Aviv, Amnon Yarden, will present Haifa Mayor Yona Yahav with a copy of the report today.

The M & G claims 'In debate with them, one detects no grain of pity for the Palestinians '
How much pity do leftwing anti-Israel hatemongers like the M & G , Kasrils etc show for Israeli victims of terror and all 5 million Israelis marked out for genocide by Iran , Hamas etc?
'Dub a Jew a "Zionist" and any crime can be commited against him with the clearest of consciences'. Hence Arab massacres of Jewish old people , women and children is judged as acceptable by the anti-Zionists , as the victims are dubbed 'Zionists'.
It is entirely keeping in the character of Islamists or rabidly leftist anti-Zionists that they should carry a rabid hatred of Israel to the point of defending the killers of Israeli children.
Givet refers to the massacres of Israeli children at Ma'alot and Kiryat Shmona in 1974 , by the Marxist Popular Front for the LIberation of Palestine. Recent years have seen the murders of hundreds of Israeli children by Arab terrorists.
The author points out to how prejudiced and unfair condemmnation of Israel in the United Nations has led to deeds: 'For moral denigration encourages physical elimination ; a few days after the adoption of the resolution of 10 November , 1975 , challenging the very existance of Israel , a bomb killed six young people (all of them refugees from Arab countries) in Jerusalem. The PLO forthwith claimed the credit for this feat , and justifying it by reference to the United Nations resolution , described it as "heroic" '

In more recent years , Irish poet Tom Paulin explicitly called for the killing of Jewish civillians in Israel .In an interview with the Egyptian paper, Al-Ahram Weekly Paulin claimed that Jewish settlers in Israel "should be shot dead". In an interview . Paulin, a leading anti-Zionist, called Brooklyn-born Jewish settlers "Nazis and racists", and insisted: "I feel nothing but hatred for them."
A few days later , a five year old Jewish girl , Danielle Shefi , was shot dead in the Jewish village of Adura, by Arab terrorists , as she cowered under her bed. They also shot her 2 year old baby brother. Journalists on the far left website indymedia openly gloated over and celebrated this murder.
In 2002 leftist anti-Zionist journalist , Richard Calland , wrote in South Africa's far left Mail&Guardian that he "quietly celebrates Israeli casualties".
Charlotte Kates , a law lecturer at Rutger University in New Jersey and an 'activist' of the pro-terror 'International Solidarity Movement' has endorsed the killing of Israeli children by Arab terrorists , calling Israeli children 'fair game'.
The same way , that the demonization of Jews by Hitler Goebbels and Der Sterner laid the way for the holocaust , I believe that the purpose of anti-Zionist propaganda is to pave the way for the genocide of Israel Jews , which would be justified , in the eyes of some Islamists and Leftists , as they are dubbed "Zionists".
