William Schabas, named to chair the UNHRC Commission on Gaza, repeatedly denounced Israeli leaders as war criminals.

It would actually be a very unusual war if only one side had committed violations of the laws of war and the other side behaved perfectly… That would be an unusual situation and an unusual conclusion. And the greater likelihood is that both sides actually [violated international law]” – biased anti-Israel “investigator” William Schabas

William Schabas has a problem.

Schabas can’t understand how there could be a situation in the world where one side is evil and the other side is good, where one side commits war crimes, and the other side doesn’t.

Following Schabas’s logic, if Hamas sends suicide bombers to blow up civilians, then Israel must also be doing something bad.

If Hamas is kidnapping soldiers bodies and not letting the International Red Cross check on live prisoners, then Israel must also be doing something bad.

If Hamas is launching thousands of rockets on Israeli civilians, men, women and children, then Israel must be also be doing something bad.

If Hamas is building terror tunnels and tried to enter Israeli towns to massacre civilians, then Israel must be also doing something bad.

If Hamas uses human shields, then Israel must be also doing something bad.

Schabas has already proved his bias, not only when he prepared a complex legal brief for the PLO terror organization – for free, and kept it quiet that he did the work, but when he said he would want to see PM Benjamin Netanyahu prosecuted for war crimes (long before this investigation).

It upsets Schabas to no end, that Israel correctly chose to not cooperate with him and his biased UN Human Rights Council “investigation”, while cooperating with another UN probe that was not openly biased.

William Schabas has a problem.

It’s himself.

P.S. I do agree with Schabas that Israel didn’t behave perfectly… but in my opinion, that’s because Israel took unnecessary risks with our IDF soldiers lives to protect enemy civilians that Hamas put in the line of fire.
