GENEVA (AP) - Israeli soldiers used an 11-year-old Palestinian boy as a human shield during the war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip, U.N. human rights experts said Monday.
The Israeli Defense force ordered the boy to walk in front of soldiers being fired on in the Gaza neighborhood of Tel al-Hawa and enter buildings before them, said the U.N. secretary-general's envoy for protecting children in armed conflict.

I don't know, it sounds like she is just against Isreal. Which isn't really a bad thing. Just seems she is a little biased on the subject. She throws around alot of accusations without any actual proof.
