Le bombardement de Cana [...] constitue-il un crime de guerre [...] ? Compte tenu du contexte sur le terrain à ce moment-là, ce n'est pas clair. Par contre, il ne fait pas de doute que le Hezbollah s'est rendu coupable de tels crimes [...]
Harper Charrie, André Pratte, 17 octobre 2006
And how does [Bob] Rae know that the massacre wasn't a war crime? Of course because he knows the intent of the Israeli military. Rae, like so much of the Canadian establishment, reads minds. He knows the Western minds of the Israelis would never deliberately kill civilians, so we have over a thousand accidents from the summer and hundreds of accidents piling up continuously in Gaza. He knows the Oriental minds of Hizbullah and so he can tell us that they deliberately killed civilians, even though they killed mostly soldiers who were invading their country, committing the ultimate war crime of aggression.
What a grim field (Canadian politics and Israel/Palestine), Justin Podur, 17 octobre 2006
The impression is that HRW is trying to present a more damning picture of Hizbullah’s actions than Israel’s, despite the evidence, to avoid attracting yet more allegations of anti-Semitism from Israel’s influential defenders.
It is for that very reason, of course, that Israel’s apologists use the slur: to intimidate organisations like HRW. The inevitable conclusion, at least based on HRW’s presentation of its findings about the Lebanon war, is that the Israel lobby is succeeding.
Human Rights Watch still denying Lebanon the right to defend itself, Jonathan Cook, 26 septembre 2006
George Galloway, célèbre député britannique, au plus fort de la crise, début août 2006. Un certain contraste avec la "gauche" québécoise. Aussi: Israel’s Attack Was Premeditated, George Monbiot, 8 août 2006. Quelque chose de semblable dans toute la presse québécoise ?
You don't give a damn! You don't even know about the Palestinian families! You don't even know that they exist! Tell me the name of one member of the seven members of the same family swatted on the beach in Gaza by an Israeli warship! You don't even know their name, but you know the name of every Israeli soldier who've been taken prisoner in this conflict because you believe whether you know it or not that Israeli blood is more valuable than that the blood of Lebanese or Palestinian! That's the truth! And the discerning of your viewers already know it!
