    Israels human rights record is only bad depending how you look at it.Considering what they're up against, I dont think its too bad at all, but not perfect i'll grant you.Better than the UN's record in preventing abuses in Sudan and China and Congo etc etc. We are all entitled to criticise who we want Dutch, until the Wahabis take over the western world and deprive of us all of free speech. Israel hasnt so much murdered those people you refer to as engaged in justifiable homicides in order to prevent murders of Israeli civilians. I hate all killing, even the evil terrorists should not have wasted their lives in vain pursuits, so I pity them too. Many homes were destroyed because they were illegally used to house tunnels or snipers. Some were destroyed whilst terrorists were ensconced within them. The palestinian infrastructure has been subject to misappropriation by terrorists who travel on the roads with their rocket launchers and use their buildings to fire on Israeli troops or store weapons and explosives. All illegal activities. Restrictions on travel are a necessary evil as long as terrorists use checkpoints to smuggle explosives and suicide bombers.Even a women with child was apprehended at one checkpoint. They even resort to sending women hospital appointees strapped with explosives. So you see, they really do need those restrictions. I'm sorry if I seem ungrateful.I'm not . The UN performed a great service to rectify previous wrongs in granting Israel statehood. Its a great shame that the Pals didnt feel able to share Palestine as it then was. We could have been great neighbours and the Pals would have benefited greatly from association with the friendly fledgling Jewish state. Still, maybe against the odds there will be peace in our time and a chance to right past wrongs and misdeeds. I truly hope so. Regards Ezreal
