    Considering that whenever Israelis get killed arabs justify it as legitimate killing of an occupier. Considering that whenever Israelis get killed arabs justify it as legitimate killing of people who are part of a standing army. Considering that arabs glorify these suicide bombers. Yes I expect these human rights abuses to be pointed out....if b'tselem expects to be taken seriously and not as just another spin-maker. The doctored videos, angled photo's etc merely take away from the potential credibility of their reports. The total lack of transparency makes one wonder how real the reports they submit are, and that's a shame. Hard as this may be for you to believe, I do believe there are abuses, who can deny the possibility, but I do not believe they are systematic.
