We, the undersigned, call upon Amnesty International to cancel the event due to be held at Amnesty's London-based Human Rights Action Centre on the 23rd May, co-hosted by the Middle East Monitoring Online (MEMO) - a group linked to the terror organisation Hamas - and the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign.

The event is entitled: “Complicity in Oppression: Does the Media Aid Israel?”

MEMO is run by Dr Daud Abdullah, the deputy secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain and a signatory of the Istanbul Declaration. This document states that it is the obligation of the “Islamic Nation” to “carry on jihad and Resistance” against Israel.

One of MEMO's regular contributors is Khalid Amaryeh, who recently referred to Jews as 'kikes'.

MEMO and the Palestine Solidarity Campaign have published a statement on both their websites stating that the show will go on “as an external event in Amnesty’s building in London”.

With your help, it is imperative we all tell Amnesty that if this event goes ahead, they will lose all credibility as a voice claiming to support the ideas of justice and freedom.

Whether you are Jewish, Muslim, Christian, whatever your politics and whatever you opinion on the Arab-Israeli conflict; it is vital that we all work together to combat the prejudice and rhetoric of hate that MEMO espouses - a violent discourse that Amnesty will be helping to enable if this event goes ahead.

One of MEMO's regular contributors is Khalid Amaryeh, who recently referred to Jews as 'kikes'.

here are a couple of quotes from the JC bloggers:

'Sorry, but Islam is not a religion. It's a totalitarian political system that by its own admission, or rather, by its own vainglorious assertion, is determined to subjugate the whole world, through force if all else fails, and destroy every last vestige of our hard-won freedoms. Calling it a 'religion' is an insult to genuine religions.'

Yoni 1 (AKA Jonathan Hoffman)

"that the Muslim community was being still being treated "as part of the problem as opposed to part of the solution." "
Yes, you scum: it is being so treated because it IS the problem.
Yoni 1 (AKA Jonathan Hoffman)

Let's start up a petition against the JC for its obvious anti Muslim and anti Arab rhetoric?

Lukas I did not know that Islam was a race your quotes do not say "Arab"- the Jews however are a race. Since when was it a crime to criticise religion? On the other hand calling someone a "kike" is racist and a crime. Bloggers criticise Judaism on this website all the time.

Jews are not a race, "Advis3r". Jews are members of a national-religious group. That's why there are black, white, Indian, etc Jews. We are for, purposes of legislation, protected under the Race Relations Act, but as the Chief Rabbi and JFS argued, Jews aren't a race.

Millis the Jews as a group are defined by English law as a race that is why they come within the protection of Race Relations legislation, that is what I meant hence my reference to a crime. Muslims on the other hand do not come within the definition of a race as meant by such legislation.

Jews are a race, Muslims are not - so what?
For that reason it's fine to stereotype and be rude about Muslims but not about Jewish people.

You silly boy.

This event is one reason I no longer contribute to Amnesty International.

Actually, "advis3r", the Muslims are also protected under the Race Relations Act. Nice try at digging yourself out of a hole, since it was you who made the sweeping statement that Jews are a race.

Suzanna I don't know to which silly boy you were referring but I do not subscribe to any faith based religion being maligned. I do however object to certain tenets of Islam which call openly for the death of Jews.
