Clowns & Jokers

Stuck in the middle.... Left, right, centre. It's a mess out there.

This is the second time the UN have acknowledged Hitzbollahs actions but the first time ive actually seen this almost in a top paragraph of the BBC webpage. As opposed to buried at the bottom after a slew of Israel bashing. Perhaps the effect of so much adverse publicity this past week care of bloggers?

"The UN's human rights chief, Louise Arbour, meanwhile, has condemned both Israel and Hezbollah for the suffering inflicted on civilians in Lebanon and northern Israel.

"Israeli attacks affecting civilians continue unabated," she told a special session of the UN Human Rights Council.

"Also unrelenting is Hezbollah's indiscriminate shelling of densely populated centres in northern Israel which has brought death and destruction. There have also been repeated allegations of Hezbollah's systematic use of civilians as human shields," she said.

Obviously it goes without saying that her remarks are somewhat dim - this is war after all - and one which came about largely due to UN failures. But Im particularly impressed with the use of the word 'affecting' for Israel which isnt as strong as 'systematic' - usually Israels preserve. And Hitzbo get more of an evil aggressor labelling on this occasion.
