Shehecheyanu!

Shehecheyanu is the name used to refer to a blessing generally made on something new, or new for that year.

(Hat tip: FrumDoc) Well, well, well. Human Rights Watch finally does something right:
The Human Rights Watch organization Wednesday condemned Hamas and Fatah for committing "serious violations of international humanitarian law, in some cases amounting to war crimes" in violence in Gaza in recent days.

It also took the Islamic Jihad and the Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades to task for a June 9 incident in which gunmen used a jeep bearing "TV" insignias to allow them to approach and attack an IDF post in southern Israel, calling it a "serious violation of the laws of war."
Of course, the main impetus for this was the deaths of Palestinians, not Jews, but hey - it's something, right?
