Harry's Place » The High Level Military Group’s Assessment of the 2014 Gaza Conflict

Well this High Level Military Group is set up by the "Friends of Israel", so pro Palestinians will dismiss its report out of hand.
But surely one should look at the evidence presented. Which is damning of Hamas.
And supported by other independent evidence that the would-be genocidally anti-Semitic Hamas is the constant provocateur.
The High Level Military Group (HLMG) is a project of the Friends of Israel Initiative comprising 12 former generals and high-ranking officials from 9 NATO and allied democracies. Formed in early 2015, the HLMG tasked itself with producing an analysis of the war on terror and the challenges faced by nations engaged in asymmetric warfare with terror organisations and hybrid state/non-state actors who do not adhere to the Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC). The HLMG's first report, released on 11 December, is a detailed analysis of last year's 50 day conflict between Hamas and the State of Israel – a case study upon which subsequent reports will build a broader analysis of the strategic and tactical challenges faced by democracies. The report begins by summarising the conflict's background and the strategic aims of its principle actors. Responsibility for the conflict, the authors conclude, "must be squarely ascribed to Hamas"
