Amnesty can't find any evidence of Hamas using hospitals and ambulances???

Elder of Ziyon

Amnesty released a report claiming that Israel "deliberately" targeted ambulances and hospitals, based entirely on witness accounts.

As one might expect, they completely discount the possibility that "eyewitnesses" in Gaza often lie to push an anti-Israel narrative.

After all, Amnesty has admitted that Palestinian Arabs often lie about attacks they "witnessed." Their researcher even admitted that NGOs are sometimes swept up in events and cannot look at the situation objectively.

Too bad they do not follow their own advice, because this report is as biased as they come.

This is clear from this paragraph:

Amnesty International is aware of reports that Palestinian armed groups have fired indiscriminate rockets from near hospitals or health facilities, or otherwise used these facilities or areas for military purposes. Amnesty International has not been able to confirm any of these reports.

To anyone who thinks Amnesty is unbiased, this must come as an astonishing claim. While Amnesty believes, without question, the testimony of people who hate Israel, they cannot find a shred of evidence that terror organizations use hospital workers as human shields and use hospitals as bases of operation.

Here is video showing not only a terrorist shooting directly from Wafa Hospital,but also the secondary explosions that show that explosives were kept there:

Here are two videos of terrorists using ambulances to avoid IDF fire:

If the IDF was targeting ambulances, why is Hamas using them to escape?

The Washington Post reported that Shifa Hospital was the de facto headquarters for Hamas,and everyone knew it.

French-Palestinian journalist Radjaa Abu Dagga described in detail about how he was interrogated by armed Al Qassam terrorists in an office next to the emergency room of Shifa Hospital.

Here's a photo of Hamas spokesman Mushir al Masri using Shifa Hospital as a Hamas media center, complete with fake backdrop.

Another reporter noted that damage to Gaza's main hospital seemed to come from Hamas, not Israel.

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society - whose employees are quoted uncritically by Amnesty - has published outrageous claims form a proven conspiracy theorist that Israel uses depleted uranium weapons

A Hamas member captured by Israel admitted that the tenth floor of a PRCS building was being used as a sniper position.

Hamas booby-trapped a health clinic that was used as a tunnel entrance.

Yet Amnesty cannot find a shred of evidence that Hamas uses hospitals and ambulances and other medical facilities.

Amnesty illustrates its press release with this photo of a heavily damaged ambulance.

Even this is deceptive. Amnesty wants its readers to believe that this ambulance was deliberately targeted, yet this photo was taken in Sheja'eya which was a Hamas stronghold. The ambulance here was just parked there and ws damaged in the airstrikes at Hamas targets, it was clearly not targeted. For some reason, Amnesty couldn't find any photos of the ambulances they claim were actually targeted in their report, so they have to find the best photo they can with the knowledge that most people won't look too carefully at it.

Amnesty goes out of its way to believe any anti-Israel evidence without skepticism, and it goes out of its way to discount overwhelming evidence that shows how Hamas has used medical facilities for war. Then it goes out of its way to find a way to illustrate the press release with a completely irrelevant photo that they imply is evidence.

Why don't Amnesty's donors find this to be a problem?
