PCHR is one of the three "human rights" groups that the UN relies on to give statistics on the dead and wounded in Gaza.

A week ago, their reports would mention the names of some of the dead who were clearly members of terrorist groups. For example, in this dispatch from July 22:

At approximately 21:00, medical sources at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City declared that Mohammed ‘Abdul ‘Aziz Eshtaiwi, 27, a member of Palestinian armed group, from Um al-Nasser village, died of wounds he had sustained on Saturday, 19 July 2014, during an armed clash with Israeli forces.

At approximately 12:30, an Israeli drone fired a missile at Saleh Mohammed Saleh Badawi, 29, a member of a Palestinian armed group, in al-Zaytoun neighborhood. He was instantly killed.

At approximately 13:30, an Israeli drone fired a missile at Mohammed Khamis al-Ghalban, 23, a member of a Palestinian armed group, in al-Sha’af neighborhood, killing him.

At approximately 00:35, an Israeli drone fired a missile at Ahmed Ameen Abu Hassira, 30, a member of a Palestinian armed group. He was instantly killed.

But since then, PCHR counts the terrorists - but no longer names them.

So for example, in today's report:

On Sunday evening, 27 July 2014, 5 members of Palestinian armed groups whose bodies were recovered on the previous day from various areas in the northern Gaza Strip were identified.

At approximately 12:30, an Israeli drone fired a missile at members of a Palestinian armed group in the east of Jabalya killing one of them.

At approximately 14:00, medical crews recovered the body of a member of a Palestinian armed group from Beit Hanoun.
Over the past week, dozens of known terrorists were identified, sometimes with their ages, but none of them were named. The ones that PCHR says are civilian are all named.

Hamas,of course, has instructed Gazans not to identify any of those killed in Gaza as being members of terror groups. PCHR, a supposedly "independent legal body,"  is now doing Hamas' bidding.

The only explanation for their change in policy - a policy that goes back at least to 2008 - is that Hamas told them to. So they did it.

This means that one of the "human rights" groups that the UN relies on for its statistics is purposefully withholding information about casualties to benefit Hamas.

Which also means that when the UN releases its statistics of percentage of civilians killed in Gaza, it is not acting independently, but it is relying on the research by a "human rights" group that is not independent at all - but one that is effectively controlled by a terror group.

And the world media (not to mention HRW and Amnesty) that trumpet these statistics are, knowingly or not, also acting as mouthpieces for Hamas.

Real journalists and human rights officials would be very bothered by this. And PCHR's research should be considered suspect by all fair-minded people. You can check the facts for yourself. I've already shown one person that PCHR considered a "civilian" that was a member of a terror group. 

As we've seen, B'Tselem's methods of deciding if someone is a militant is also very flawed.

Amazingly, this clear obedience to Hamas desires has been going on for a week. None of the hundreds of journalists, analysts, pundits, tweeters, or activists noticed it - or considered it newsworthy.
