The nongovernmental human rights organization Amnesty International does some valuable work around the world. This includes bringing attention to human rights abuses such as China’s genocide against its Uyghur Muslim population, for example. Unfortunately, when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Amnesty’s work often fails the truth test.
A new report released on Monday emphasized as much. Focused on Israel’s recent mid-May conflict with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, or the PIJ, Amnesty’s report misreads both the laws of war and the nature of the battles.
