Exchange them for Gilad Shalit! They will thus have what they deserved: a free stay in Hamastan.

Gilat (can't remember his rank, they keep promoting him) went in as a willing participant for the IOF to enforce the occupation, Amnesty are in Egypt to free people from oppression. Can you not tell the difference?

There is no occupation in Gaza and Gilad Shalit was guarding the frontier from terrorist invasion by HAMAS. You support Nazi HAMAS, Hater zair.

Amnesty are in Egypt to free people from oppression.

Amnesy is an organisation that delegitimises Israel on a nearly daily basis and condones a number of dictatorial regimes. Those who support dictatorial regimes should know that they are not welcome anywhere else.

Besides, Amnesy is not in Egypt to free anyone. This is not the way Amnesy works. Amnesy is in Egypt to make reports in the future, supporting the regime change even if the new regime will be predictably worse for all. Then, it will make new reports on the new regime.

There is no occupation, and only Nazis call it the IOF.

Jose - I find your postings full of absurdities...

For example:
amnesy (sic) is an organisation that delegitimises Israel on a nearly daily basis and condones a number of dictatorial regimes. Those who support dictatorial regimes should know that they are not welcome anywhere else.

The first sentence is patently untrue.

The second sentence forgets that Israel has spent years supporting a dictatorship in Egypt. So therefore Israelis aren't welcome anywhere?

And using Nazi as an insult is so infantile. But I know you will predictably call me such or call me an anti Semite.

Lukas, I was sure your pseudo was brand new!

The first sentence is patently untrue.

Says who? Amnesy condones by its silence over a number of dictatorial regimes and by focusing on Israeli democracy.
Amnesy went as far as beg for money to Saudi Arabia. Good services have a price, I guess.

The second sentence forgets that Israel has spent years supporting a dictatorship in Egypt.

That is in itself antisemitic. Singles out Israel, when all Western democracies supported Egyptian dictature. US generously funded that dictatorship for little benefit to the US taxpayers. Another dictator, Saddate, made peace with Israel, by the way.

And using Nazi as an insult is so infantile. But I know you will predictably call me such or call me an anti Semite.

I don't have to: the EU calls you that...

Examples of the ways in which antisemitism manifests itself with regard to the state of Israel taking into account the overall context could include:
...

Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.

Note that the 'new' Lukas denies that HAMAS is a Nazi organisation. Interesting to know how he got to that strange conclusion.

http://www.ngo-monitor.org/article/amnesty_international:

During the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Amnesty unjustifiably accused Israel of “war crimes” and “deliberate attacks on civilians,” and relied on Lebanese “eyewitnesses” to allege that Hezbollah did not operate in population centers.
In 2007, Amnesty continued to disproportionately single out Israel for condemnation, focusing solely on the conflict with the Palestinians, misrepresenting the complexity of the conflict and ignoring more severe human rights violations in the region.
In 2010, senior staff member Gita Saghal was suspended after she condemned Amnesty’s alliance with an alleged Taliban supporter.
Following the May 6, 2010 arrest of Ittijah head Ameer Makhoul on charges of allegedly spying for Hezbollah, Amnesty International misrepresented Makhoul as a “human rights defender” and claimed that Makhoul’s detention was “designed to hinder his human rights work.”
In August 2010, the executive director of Amnesty-Finland, Frank Johansson, referred to Israel in a highly offensive manner, translated as “a scum state,” on his blog.
Amnesty International distorts international law – misusing terms like “collective punishment,” “occupying power” and “disproportionate” – in its condemnations of Israel’s Gaza policy.

What is clear is that Amnesy has a clear politically-motivated agenda. The humanitarian business can bring a lot of money if you pat the right backs.
