Amnesty calls for 1947 solution

Sixty years ago, when Israel was fighting for its existence, a friendly US Administration embargoed weapons shipments to Palestine. Though theoretically intended to halt arms supplies to both Jews and Arabs, the embargo only worked against Jews, as Arabs received weapons from Egypt and Jordan.

Amnesty International calls for the cessation of weapons sales to Israel and Hamas, but not to Fatah. Amnesty cannot stop Iran and Syria from aiding Hamas, so in effect the embargo is only to affect the Jews.

In its report, Amnesty accused Jews of war crimes in Gaza, including using white phosphorous [1] bombs, though these were only used for illumination. Amnesty was less vociferous when Britain was killing civilians in the Falkland Islands.
