IF CONFIRMED: Human Rights Watch on Syria

Look at this statement:  "Steve Goose, arms division director at Human Rights Watch, said if the images were confirmed it would be the first documented use of cluster munitions in the conflict."  In the paper edition, he merely said: "IF CONFIRMED, it would be..."  If confirmed? Since when does HRW react to unconfirmed news? In the case of Israel, Human Rights Watch does not confirm the death of an Arab, unless his/her body is personally examined and touched by a White Man representative from the organization.  If confirmed?  If confirmed, Israel has nuclear weapons and will use them.  If confirmed, HRW sees its role as a mere echo of US Department of State.  If confirmed, HRW has different standards toward countries depending on their relations with Israel. If confirmed, HRW has covered up crimes against Syrians in Lebanon because it sees itself as an ally of the March 14 coalition in Lebanon.
