Human rights groups
Human Rights Watch, like Amnesty, has been gradually corrupted by the anti-Israel left.
It has been a long decline into an organisation that can no longer always be trusted.
- Human Rights Watch
(some of the criticism is from human rights abusers)
- Summary of anti-Israel bias:
- More on Israel:
- Joe Stork, deputy director of HRW Middle East and North Africa programs,
HRW hosts fundraiser in 2009 in Saudi Arabia
one of the worst human rights abusers in the world.
While there, they pander to the local anti-Israel bigotry.
(As if Saudi hostility to Israel is based on human rights!)
- Natan Sharansky
on HRW backing Saudi Arabia against Israel:
"Here is an organization created by the goodwill of the free world to fight violations of human rights, which has become a tool in the hands of dictatorial regimes to fight against democracies."
- HRW makes apologies for gay-hating Islamic fundamentalists:
After a vicious assault by Muslim immigrants on gays in Holland,
director of the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Program"
at HRW, shamefully says:
"There's still an extraordinary degree of racism in Dutch society.
Gays often become the victims of this when immigrants retaliate
for the inequities that they have to suffer."
Kenneth Roth of HRW tweets on
11 June 2014
defending the maniac Sunni butchers ISIS versus
the Shia strongman Maliki.
Creepy, tasteless and disturbing.
Another horrible tweet from
(Criticised here by
slaughter random Christians at Sunday church in Cairo, Dec 2016.
Roth seems to think this is some kind of "protest" against the Sisi regime.
Jesus. Ken Roth implies, May 2017, that Iran has free elections. Unbelievable.
Adam Shapiro's tweet of
27 July 2012
tells me all I need to know about "Front Line Defenders".
The US State Department
"Women of Courage" Award
has had trouble with honouring dodgy characters.
The 2013 Award
, March 2013, planned to honour Egyptian protester
Above is a tweet
from Samira Ibrahim on Aug 21, 2012, approvingly quoting Hitler.
The tweet reads:
I have discovered with the passage of days, that no act contrary to morality, no crime against society, takes place, except with the Jews having a hand in it. - "Hitler"
- The Weekly Standard, 6 Mar 2013, did the work that the US State Department somehow failed to, and found out who she was.
Samira Ibrahim, it turns out, hates the Jews and Israel, and praised the 2012 suicide bombing of Jews in Bulgaria.
- Remarkably, instead of ignoring the Weekly Standard report,
the US State Department decided to defer her award pending review.
This is what a free press is for.
blaming the Jews.

The Martin Ennals Award
("the Nobel Prize for human rights")
disgraces itself by including in the 2013 finalists the
Mona Seif was nominated by
Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Front Line Defenders.
There was an outcry
and (perhaps partly because of that)
she did not win.
"As an Arab who wants to purge Arab societies of the scourge of extremism and terrorism, I have come to realize that Islamists aren't the only obstacle and that the far-left are also an obstacle, perhaps an even larger obstacle, because they have emboldened the Islamists, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood and Hezbollah in particular, and as a result, the Islamists have increased in strength. We are feeling the result of the far-left's assistance and support of the Islamists in the Arab world. I have seen far-left rhetoric that is supportive of these Islamist groups from once mainstream and formerly liberal groups such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch by their disproportionate criticism of Israel, yet their silence regarding Hamas and Hezbollah. I can no longer call these groups liberal when their words and actions are supportive of Islamist groups who seek the destruction and genocide of others."

Omar Dakhane, 7 Mar 2012, says the left-wing turn taken by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch aids and encourages human rights abusers in the Arab world.
