UK: Amnesty maps 'Israeli law breaches'

NGO Monitor and Elder of Ziyon anayse AI's accusations:
- Amnesty´s "Gaza Platform": All Window Dressing, No Substance
- Another lie by Amnesty International. Why are they respected by anyone?

The Jewish Chronicle reports:

Map claiming to show Gaza attacks
Amnesty International UK and a London university have released a digital mapping project that purportedly records the "deadly pattern of Israeli attacks" on Gaza during the 50-day-war last summer.

Released this week to mark the one-year anniversary of Operation Protective Edge, the online Gaza Project includes satellite images, testimony, photos and videos.

Activists behind the project have claimed that the project proves Israel's alleged breaches of international humanitarian law through a pattern of targeting civilian homes in Gaza.The project was produced by Amnesty working with the Forensic Architecture research project at Goldsmiths, University of London.

Eyal Weizman, director of Forensic Architecture, said the maps were "a significant step in the process of documenting the full scale of violations that took place in Gaza last year. It is also a call for individuals and other organisations to send more photographs, testimonies and other forms of evidence about attacks they have experienced or documented during the conflict."

Amnesty's Middle East and North Africa director Philip Luther said: "The Gaza Platform is the most comprehensive record of attacks during the 2014 conflict to date. "It allows us to piece together more than 2,500 individual attacks, illustrating the vast scale of destruction caused by Israel's military operations in Gaza.

"By revealing patterns rather than just presenting a series of individual attacks, the Gaza Platform has the potential to expose the systematic nature of Israeli violations committed during the conflict.

"Our aim is for it to become an invaluable resource for human rights investigators pushing for accountability for violations committed during the conflict." 

The Israeli Embassy in London declined to comment on the project.  The maps do not record Hamas terrorists' rocket attacks on Israel.
