Rockets From Qana

Hezbollah now claims that it doesn’t shoot rockets from Qana. Yeah, right. Blog of the Week Vital Perspective has video of rockets being launched from that town. One thing puzzles me, though. The whole purpose of a terrorist organization is to commit mass murder in the most cowardly, dishonorable way possible. So…why would anyone ever believe anything said be terrorists?

Vital Perspective also notes Article 28 of the 4th Geneva Convention:

The presence of a protected person may not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations.

So the civilian casualties are, under the Geneva Convention, Hezbollah’s responsibility.
