The Palestinian Envoy to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva tells Palestinian Authority TV that the PA needs to be prudent about appeals to the Human Rights Council because every Hamas rocket – fired indiscriminately and without warning into civilian areas – constitutes a “crime against humanity.” He also notes reports from Gaza about how the IDF is sending advance evacuation warnings before bombing attacks. This candor will and is being seized on by supporters of Israel. But it’s just as much as rebuke to the rejectionist right in Israel who claim there’s no partner for peace among the Palestinians.
There’s a path to end all of this. Not just this flare-up but the whole conflict. It’s there. It just needs to be taken.
