Amnesty officially calls Turkel report a “whitewash” – with no proof

The solution to the “Palestinian” curse on Israel

From http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2011/01/amnesty-officially-calls-turkel-report.html

As a follow-up to this story I broke this morning, proving Amnesty’s bias by condemning the Turkel Commission report before even reading it, Amnesty has written a more comprehensive critique of the Turkel report, this time explicitly calling it a “whitewash.”

Of course, since Amnesty had already come to that conclusion before actually examining the report, we can rest assured that their objectivity in their analysis is equally flawed. Can it even enter one’s mind that Amnesty would have issued a press release saying, “Sorry, we were wrong”?

And, of course, Amnesty’s response falls short of proving anything close to what they are claiming:

Amnesty International has condemned the findings of an Israeli inquiry into last year’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla as a “whitewash” which failed to account for the deaths of nine Turkish nationals.

Turkel Commision: Israel’s #Flotilla Raid Was In Accordance With International Law

Posted by avideditor on January 24, 2011

Surprised that the jihadis where wrong again?

From http://daledamos.blogspot.com/2011/01/turkel-commision-israels-flotilla-raid.html

The Turkel Commission has concluded that Israel’s boarding of the Gaza Flotilla’s Mavi Marmara was done in accordance with International Law.

Of course, this will upset self-proclaimed humanitarian activists around the world who have hijacked the term “international law” to attack anything that does not fit the way they think the world should be run.

The verdict of the commission follows the opinion of actual legal opinions that have come out since the incident of the Mavi Marmara itself.

Turkel on whether Gaza is “occupied”

Posted by avideditor on January 24, 2011

Facts seems to get in the way of jihadi lies.
From http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2011/01/turkel-on-whether-gaza-is-occupied.html
Here is a section of the Turkel report that discusses whether the Gaza Strip is legally “occupied” by Israel, as Amnesty and other organizations continue to bizarrely insist:

In Al-Bassiouni v. Prime Minister, the Supreme Court of Israel held that since the disengagement in 2005, Israel does not have ‘effective control’ over the Gaza Strip. Because of the importance of this conclusion, the actual wording of the Supreme Court is cited below:

‘… since September 2005 Israel no longer has effective control over what happens in the Gaza Strip. Military rule that applied in the past in this territory came to an end by a decision of the government, and Israeli soldiers are no longer stationed in the territory on a permanent basis, nor are they in charge of what happens there. In these circumstances, the State of Israel does not have a general duty to ensure the welfare of the residents of the Gaza Strip or to maintain public order in the Gaza Strip according to the laws of belligerent occupation in international law. Neither does Israel have any effective capability, in its present position, of enforcing order and managing civilian life in the Gaza Strip.’

In its judgment, the Supreme Court further held that the main obligations imposed on the State of Israel vis-à-vis the inhabitants of the Gaza Strip derive from the existence of an armed conflict between Israel and the Hamas organization; the degree of control exercised by the State of Israel over the border crossings between it and the Gaza Strip; and the relationship of dependency that was created – at least in certain spheres, such as the electricity supply to the Gaza Strip – during the long period of military rule in the Gaza Strip.
