Human Shields

Found this very revealing article in the Haaretz which describes in detail how one man was used as a Human Shield by the Israeli Defense forces in their recent massacre of Gaza.  As we know, the IDF has been warned about using Human Shields before by the Israeli Supreme Court:

Amazingly, the IDF has defended this practice:

The Israeli Defence Ministry will appeal against a supreme court ruling banning the use of Palestinian human shields in raids, officials said.

Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz is prepared to make a personal appearance in court to defend the practice, ministry officials added.

Human rights groups have frequently condemned the use of human shields.

The Israeli military believes that the use of Palestinian civilians can often defuse a tense situation.

Read the experience of Majdi Abed Rabbo last month during the massacre and see who is really using this internationally condemned cowardly tactic:

How can anyone complain about Hamas Human Shields anymore?  For more on the human shield situation in the Middle East see this Wiki article:
