Testimonianza di un colonnello dell'esercito britannico sul comportamento dei soldati isrealiani in occasione dell'operazione Pimbo Fuso

 

Sono l'ex comandante delle forze britanniche in Afghanistan. Ho servito con la NATO e le Nazioni Unite; comandava le truppe in Irlanda del Nord, Bosnia e Macedonia, e ha partecipato alla guerra del Golfo. Ho trascorso molto tempo in Iraq dall'invasione del 2003, e ha lavorato sul terrorismo internazionale per il governo del Regno Unito Joint Intelligence Committee.

Signor Presidente, in base alla mia conoscenza ed esperienza, posso dire questo: durante l'operazione "Piombo fuso, le forze di difesa israeliane ha fatto di più per tutelare i diritti dei civili in zona di combattimento rispetto a qualsiasi altro esercito nella storia della guerra.

Israele ha fatto, mentre di fronte a un nemico che volutamente posizionato la sua capacità militare dietro lo scudo umano della popolazione civile.

Hamas, come Hezbollah, sono esperti nel guidare l'agenda dei media. Entrambi saranno sempre persone pronte a dare interviste condanna delle forze israeliane per crimini di guerra. Essi sono abili a sosta e gli incidenti di distorsione.

L'IDF trova ad affrontare una sfida che noi britannici non si devono affrontare nella stessa misura. E 'la memorizzazione automatica, presunzione pavloviano da molti nei media internazionali, e internazionali per i diritti umani, che le Forze di Difesa israeliane sono dalla parte del torto, che essi stanno abusando dei diritti umani.

La verità è che l'IDF ha adottato misure straordinarie per dare i civili di Gaza avviso di zone in questione, cadere oltre 2 milioni di volantini, e facendo oltre 100.000 telefonate. Molte missioni che avrebbe potuto prendere le capacità militari di Hamas sono state interrotte per evitare vittime civili. Durante il conflitto, l'IDF ha permesso di enormi quantità di aiuti umanitari a Gaza. Per fornire un aiuto praticamente nelle mani del tuo nemico è, per il tattico militare, di solito abbastanza impensabile. Ma l'IDF ha su tali rischi.

Nonostante tutto questo, ovviamente di civili innocenti sono stati uccisi. La guerra è il caos e piena di errori. Ci sono stati errori da parte delle forze britanniche, americane e di altri in Afghanistan e in Iraq, molti dei quali possono essere imputata a errore umano. Ma gli errori non sono crimini di guerra.

Più di ogni altra cosa, le vittime civili sono una conseguenza del modo di Hamas 'di combattere. Hamas ha cercato deliberatamente di sacrificare le loro proprie civili.

Signor Presidente, Israele non aveva altra scelta oltre a difendere la sua gente, per fermare Hamas di attaccare con razzi.

E lo dico di nuovo: l'IDF ha fatto di più per tutelare i diritti dei civili in zona di combattimento rispetto a qualsiasi altro esercito nella storia della guerra

Thank you, Mr. President.

I am the former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan. I served with NATO and the United Nations; commanded troops in Northern Ireland, Bosnia and Macedonia; and participated in the Gulf War. I spent considerable time in Iraq since the 2003 invasion, and worked on international terrorism for the UK Government’s Joint Intelligence Committee.

Mr. President, based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: During Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Israel did so while facing an enemy that deliberately positioned its military capability behind the human shield of the civilian population.


Hamas, like Hizballah, are expert at driving the media agenda. Both will always have people ready to give interviews condemning Israeli forces for war crimes. They are adept at staging and distorting incidents.

The IDF faces a challenge that we British do not have to face to the same extent. It is the automatic, Pavlovian presumption by many in the international media, and international human rights groups, that the IDF are in the wrong, that they are abusing human rights.

The truth is that the IDF took extraordinary measures to give Gaza civilians notice of targeted areas, dropping over 2 million leaflets, and making over 100,000 phone calls. Many missions that could have taken out Hamas military capability were aborted to prevent civilian casualties. During the conflict, the IDF allowed huge amounts of humanitarian aid into Gaza. To deliver aid virtually into your enemy's hands is, to the military tactician, normally quite unthinkable. But the IDF took on those risks.

Despite all of this, of course innocent civilians were killed. War is chaos and full of mistakes. There have been mistakes by the British, American and other forces in Afghanistan and in Iraq, many of which can be put down to human error. But mistakes are not war crimes.

More than anything, the civilian casualties were a consequence of Hamas’ way of fighting. Hamas deliberately tried to sacrifice their own civilians.

Mr. President, Israel had no choice apart from defending its people, to stop Hamas from attacking them with rockets.

And I say this again: the IDF did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.

Thank you, Mr. President.
