Amnesty International and Lebanon - II

The idea that a country at war can't attack the enemy's resupply routes (at least until it has direct evidence that there is a particular military shipment arriving) has nothing to do with human rights or war crimes, and a lot to do with a pacifist attitude that seeks to make war, regardless of the justification for it or the restraint in prosecuting it [at least if it's a Western country doing it], an international "crime."

Law professor David Bernstein, quoted in Alan Dershowitz's searching analysis of Amnesty International's capitulation to double standards in its repeated attacks on Israel.
