Amnesty's Anti-Israel bias....

I used to have a lot of respect for Amnesty International...not anymore...
Amnesty International is not only sacrificing its own credibility when it misstates the law and omits relevant facts in its obsession over Israel. It also harms progressive causes that AI should be championing. Just last year, for example, Amnesty blamed Palestinian rapes and "honor killings" on - you guessed it - the Israeli occupation. When I pointed out that there was absolutely no statistical evidence to show that domestic violence increased during the occupation, and that Amnesty's report relied exclusively on the conclusory and anecdotal reports of Palestinian NGOs, Amnesty stubbornly repeated that "Israel is implicated in this violence by Palestinian men against Palestinian women." This episode only underscored AI's predisposition to blame everything on Israel. Even when presented with an ideal opportunity to promote gender equality and feminism in the Arab world, it preferred to take wholly unrelated and absurd shots at Israel.

Amnesty International just can't seem to help itself when it comes to blaming Israel for the evils of the world, but rational observers must not credit the pre-determined conclusions of a once-reputable organization that has destroyed its own credibility by repeatedly applying a double standard to Israel.
The Amnesty report that Dershowitz talks about blames Israel for war crimes in Lebanon...without anything about Hezbollah. Please read the whole thing.

Amnesty International and other groups that support fascism should be nailed with nuisance lawsuits continually in order to stop them from using their money to spread hatred like they usually do.

I read a A.I. report about the suicide bombers in Israel and A.I. had the nerve to state that Israel must stop the violent responses to these killers and use the Courts to bring them to Justice instead of harming innocent civilians in Palestine.

There's just one problem Mr.Sheen , suicide bombers don't leave very much behind to drag into a Courtroom and put on Trial
for their murdering of civilians.

If these Islamofacsists believe that agression by the west causes the violence by Muslims , then why do Islamic Nations have Police and an Army.
Please don't try to tell me that if Toronto got rid of our Police the crime would stop, some people are just Bad-seeds with no intent of changing because of possible mental disorders.

I lost respect for Amnesty International years ago when they started supporting mass male deaths. They've just gotten worse over the years.
