“Human Rights in the Middle East” Robert L. Bernstein

A lecture on biased NGO "Human Rights Watch" by one of its founders. Long but meaningful, not like the polarized proses of telegramsam and Avraham.

"On Thursday, November 4, a report came out that Fathi Hamad, the Hamas administration’s Interior Minister, revealed that as many as 700 Hamas military-security operatives were killed during Operation Cast Lead. The number, consistent with Israel’s examination, is significantly higher than the numbers given by Hamas and used by the Goldstone Report. It would indicate that about 60 percent of those killed in the war were actively engaged and not civilians – despite Hamas’s tactic of embedding itself in the civilian population of Gaza. If this report holds up, it will be interesting to see if the Goldstone Report and Human Rights Watch reports are reevaluated by them – all of which took the Palestinians’ figures as fact."

I bet the Goldstone report will NEVER be reevaluated and that Human Rights Watch will NOT EVEN MENTION that new fact, denying the death of a majority of civilians in the Cast Lead operations, and showing the bias of their reports. Let's not mention the ludicrous PCHR figures, shown now by the HAMAS itself to be propaganda.

As for Goldstone, he should resign as a judge, as he proved he was unable to see the obvious truth -- a prerequisite for the job. Human Rights Watch should be dissolved in their shame: that would be homeopathy indeed!
