"It was routine for many many years and likely still is."
ohreally? Likely? Proof?
"What Hamas might do is irrelevant."
Of course it is. Because they are freedom fighters? So firing rockets from civilian areas is OK then.
What would any other country do in this situation? Ignore the problem?
Even UNWRA complained!
"Most Palestinians are not members of Hamas."
The point being?
Perhaps you should read the reports you site...
""The State of the World’s Human Rights,” as the annual report is known, documents human rights violations in 159 countries. A press release attached to the report highlights 22 countries as “examples of the rise and impact of poisonous rhetoric, national crackdowns on activism and freedom of expression." The list includes – although the report notes that it was “by no means limited to” – China, Egypt, France, India, Iran, Syria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States. Israel does not appear on this list.
The report documents how 36 countries, including Israel, broke international law by returning refugees to countries where their safety was at risk. It documents how people in 22 countries (not including Israel) were killed for peacefully standing up for human rights and how war crimes were committed in at least 23 countries (including Israel).
The report does not spare the Palestinian governing bodies either. “Neither the Palestinian government nor the Hamas de facto administration in Gaza took steps to ensure accountability for crimes committed by Palestinians armed groups in previous conflicts, including indiscriminate rocket and mortar attacks on Israel and summary killings of alleged ‘collaborators,’” it states. According to the report, Palestinians killed 16 Israelis, most civilians, and one foreign national in stabbings, car-rammings, shootings and other attacks last year."
S'funny how of all the countries reported on, only Israel gets its legitimacy questioned.
