JNS.org – The human rights organization Amnesty International—which is known for its harsh criticism of Israel—strongly condemned the spate of Palestinian terror attacks on Israeli civilians over the past week, saying the attacks “displayed a clear contempt for human life.”

“Deliberately attacking civilians is contrary to one of the most fundamental principles of international law and can never be justified,” said Philip Luther, director of the Middle East and North Africa Programme at Amnesty International.

On Thursday, Palestinian terrorists killed five people—including three Israelis, an American yeshiva student, and a Palestinian—in attacks in Gush Etzion and Tel Aviv.

Amnesty, however, also condemned Israel for its “pattern of unlawful killings, including extrajudicial executions, by Israeli forces against Palestinian civilians and a series of attacks by Israeli settlers on Palestinian civilians and homes over the past two months.”

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    When is Amnesty Int’l on the side of Israel. Please, do not expect a bleeding hearts group to be with Israel, it will never happen,

    It’s a start, but which is more “reprehensible and unjustified” – the Palestinian terrorists murdering innocent Israelis or the Israeli police who stop the terrorists without first seeking a court order from a judge? Amnesty seems to treat them equally to maintain their “moral balance,” which of course is really the absence of morality. Have they accused the Paris police of similar extrajudicial executions over the past week? How about California police for killing that knife-wielding attacker?
