Israel rejects UN report on Gaza deaths

Israel on Thursday rejected a UN report accusing its forces of possible war crimes against scores of Palestinians during Gaza border protests last year as a ’theater of the absurd’. The UN report said more than 6,000 people were shot by military snipers to repel protesters near the separation fence.

Is this the same UN that had Saudi Arabia in its Human Rights Council?

imagine your job was to secure the southern border, yet mexicos stated goal was the destruction of America because freedom of speech was against their religion. imagine we had border clashes where hundreds of Mexicans rioted and threw molatovs and planted ieds that killed an average of 50 troops a year. now put yourself behind a .22 with a scope trying to stop violent outbeaks. you can bet your ass there would be 6000 people shot a year.

UNHCR is filled to the brim with countries with terrible human rights records. its a farce lended air of legitimacy by being associated with UN.

What about all of the Christians killed in Yemen? The U N ignore murders carried out by their bed buddies.

You can safely stop reading after "UN report"! Should be seen as a warning sign for deliberately false information!

Using snipers to target and kill marked medics is a war crime. Israel has done this many times. If these actions were done by any nation not friendly to the US it would have been condemned and they would have wanted to drop bombs while ago (well, if they have resources to steal anyway).

I’m not supposed to have an opinion but: People shouldn’t be shooting children in war zones. All the same… Children shouldn’t be protesting in the middle of a war zone.

The words UN and report are not compatible unless it's the report about child rape on UN missions.

6k killed by sniper fire? That seems a little high. I believe Chris Kyle himself only had 160 confirmed kills over his entire Career. I'm not saying impossible especially since I'm sure there were many soldiers there, but adding "sniper fire" to the title seems a bit misleading. And since the U.N's HRC is a joke, I'm not inclined to trust it very much.

Not our people not our problem. US should be uninvolved no exceptions. Pull the plug on the middle east. No aid to Israel or any other nation in the region.
