Yes, Virginia, Targeting Civilians Is a War Crime

At least, according to the UN's human rights watchdog.

And yeah, to answer the whining sound from the White House and 24 Sussex, no-one's trying to apply that rule to the terrorist organisations like Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hizbullah, or the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Because they're terrorists.

They didn't sign any papers saying they would respect human rights, as Israel did. In fact it would be totally antethical to their stated undemocratic purpose of forcing the world to do the "right thing" by their lights by means of violence, threats, and the murder of innocents.

But it seems Israel is eager to join them.
