Article: U.N. panel condemns raid on aid flotilla

Date: Thursday, September 23, 2010

This article consisted of three sentences:
A raid by Israeli commandos on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May was unlawful and resulted in violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, a panel of international experts said Wednesday.

The three experts, nominated by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate the Israeli raid in which nine pro-Palestinian activists were killed, also said Israel's blockade of Gaza caused a humanitarian crisis and was unlawful. The panel also said Israel has a right to security.

Bias. Omission. Lack of Balance: Omitted was any reference to the questionable record of the infamous Human Rights Council and the clear bias of the members of the so-called "experts." Nor were the inaccuracies in the report of the panel noted. including the fact that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Omitted was the fact that the so-called activists were armed and attacked the Israeli commandos.


Factual Accuracy: 6
Bias-Free: 0
Pro-Israel: 0
