UN: Shocked and Awed

The UN is "shocked" at the Israeli use of force in the finals days of the war:

The United Nations on Wednesday described as “shocking and immoral” the fact that Israel dropped well over 90 per cent of its cluster munitions in Lebanon during the last three days of the conflict – when it was already clear there would be a cessation of hostilities.

Once again, note that they are completely silent about:
  • The root cause of this war
  • Why Lebanese Civilians Die
  • Hezbollah specifically targeting Israeli citizens
The UN's tired old anti-Israel stance is becoming a little bit repetitive. It's almost not worth reporting any more. I'm sure most of you are just sighing, shrugging, and moving on. This is news?
