What excites 'human rights watch's WhitsonHere's what gets 'human rights watch's Sarah Leah Whitson all riled up:
despicable, medieval home demolitions by #Israel punish entire family for crime of suspected killers - war crimes http://t.co/JZYzhl2nM5Funny. In the United States, if someone sells drugs in a house, the house is subject to forfeiture, even if the owner knew nothing about it. Does Whitson consider that 'medieval'?

Home demolition as punishment was brought to this country by the British Mandate. Does Whitson consider Britain 'medieval'?
Egypt flattened 800 homes to make a buffer between Gaza and its Rafah border. Don't recall hearing Whitson calling that 'medieval.'
Or maybe Whitson's real problem with home demolitions is if they're carried out by Israel.
