Your statement of facts is incorrect. The UN were to investigate, Israel refused to allow them into Jenin, so they "created" a report from the UN headquarters, many thousands of miles away. It was stated BEFORE the report was even started that if it used any words like "massacre" the US would veto it. Yeh of course I believe the report.
2 Days ago a UN report came out, telling us 'only' 59 people were killed in the Jenin-camp a while ago, while the Palestinians claimed several hundreds were slaughtered. They faked funerals over and over and over again. I'm not saying the Israelis don't commit warcrimes, in fact, they do that a lot. But claiming several hundreds of Palestinians were slaughtered and later proven wrong isn't really nice either.
I guess I hate both parties.
Everytime now, when I turn on the TV and see dead Israelis or Palestinians it makes me go numb. I don't feel anything anymore.
I don't really care anymore..
By the way, I hate the way Palestinians show off their dead children as if they're martyrs, that's just making me sick.
But the respected body Human Rights Watch has reported..
Among the twenty-two civilian deaths documented during this investigation were the following:
Fifty-seven-year-old Kamal Zghair, a wheelchair-bound man who was shot and then run over by IDF tanks on April 10 as he was moving in his wheelchair equipped with a white flag down a major road in Jenin;
Thirty-seven-year-old Jamal Fayid, a paralyzed man, who was crushed in the rubble of his home on April 7 after IDF soldiers refused to allow his family the time to remove him from their home before a bulldozer destroyed it;
Fourteen-year-old Faris Zaiben, who was killed by fire from an IDF armored car as he went to buy groceries when the IDF-imposed curfew was finally lifted on April 11; and
Fifty-two-year-old 'Afaf Disuqi, who was killed on April 5 by an explosive charge that IDF soldiers had placed at her front door as she went to open it for the soldiers;
In one case involving a wounded Palestinian militant, IDF soldiers for several hours prevented medical help from reaching him. The soldiers then killed the man, who had been left close to a hospital near the camp and was no longer armed or taking active part in the fighting.

You are my opponent, but not my enemy, for your resistance gives me strength. Your will gives me courage. Your spirit ennobles me. And, although I aim to defeat you, should I succeed, I will not humiliate you, instead I will honour you..For without you, I am a lesser man.
