Robert L. Bernstein – grundlægger af Human Rights Watch – kommer med sønderlemmende kritik af organisationen

The founder of Human Rights Watch delivered a lecture lacerating the organization he had established for moral failures in its treatment of Israel.

“At the beginning, I told you how Natan Sharansky came to my hotel and gave me an autographed copy of his latest book Defending Identity. In it, he has some very harsh words concerning human rights organizations.

Having spent nine years in Soviet prisons, he has a very clear picture of the difference between free and totalitarian nations.

Here are a few sentences from his book: “The hypocrisy and double standards of the international human rights organizations reflect the disappearance of clear moral criteria that alone can guard human rights. A refusal to see the difference between free and totalitarian societies, between a state at peace and a state at war against terrorist regimes, undermines the universal values on which a claim to human rights is based.”

He adds: “A commitment to human rights is above all a commitment to democracy and freedom and to the right to defend them. To equate all cultures, to refuse to distinguish between those that are democratic and those that are not, is the profoundest betrayal of human rights. . . It is acceptable to hold democracies up to a higher standard as long as you recognize that democracies, by definition, are already maintaining higher standards.”

And he also says: “In its refusal to distinguish democratic from nondemocratic regimes, the human rights movement undercuts its own commitment to democratic freedoms and itself becomes a tool of undemocratic powers.””

Human Rights Watch angriber HamaSS og beskylder palaraberne for krigsforbrydelser

The 31-page report, “Rockets from Gaza: Harm to Civilians from Palestinian Armed Groups’ Rocket Attacks,” documents attacks by Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups since November 2008 that killed three Israeli civilians and seriously injured dozens of others, damaged property and forced residents to leave their homes.

The rockets unlawfully struck populated areas up to 40 kilometers inside Israel, placing roughly 800,000 Israeli civilians at risk. Rockets that fell short of their intended targets in Israel killed two girls and wounded others in Gaza during this period. Palestinian armed groups that launched rockets from densely populated areas also unlawfully put Gaza civilians at risk of Israeli counterstrikes.

“Hamas rocket attacks targeting Israeli civilians are unlawful and unjustifiable, and amount to war crimes,” said Iain Levine, program director at Human Rights Watch. “As the governing authority in Gaza, Hamas should publicly renounce rocket attacks on Israeli civilian centers and punish those responsible, including members of its own armed wing.”

Så vil vi gerne høre DDR og andre medier referere denne rapport snarest.

Tavshed på menneskeretsfronten

Hverken Amnesty International eller Human Rights Watch har rigtig sagt noget.

Ikke da en dansk tegner tilsyneladende stod for at skulle myrdes, fordi han havde lavet en tegning. Eller da arabiske medier blev pålagt nye restriktioner i et charter fra Den Arabiske Liga. Eller da den hollandske regering begyndte at rasle med ideen om at forbyde en kortfilm, der kritiserer Koranen, af frygt for de reaktioner den måtte afstedkomme.

Men når ytringsfriheden bliver brugt af nogle, hvis synspunkter man ikke bryder sig om, så er den tilsyneladende ikke værd at forsvare, synes menneskerettighedsorganisationerne.

I hvert fald har de ikke gjort det.

Og medierne har ikke spurgt dem om, hvad de mener. Hvorfor mon?

Villy Somnambulist fabulerer

Danmark må erkende medansvar for de tusindvis af terrorofre i Irak.

Og så sige undskyld, mener SF-formand Villy Søvndal.

Hele historien i Ekstrabladet

Nå er det de danske soldater i Irak, der i fritiden går ud og sprænger vejsidebomber og lignende af. De er måske også selvmordsbombere, mærkeligt at vi kun har hørt om 2 døde danske soldater i Irak, selvom det selvfølgelig er 2 for meget.

Søvndahl glemmer vist, at det er terroristerne i Irak, der af Human Rights Watch er udnævnt til krigsforbrydere, der udfører forbrydelser mod menneskeheden.

Men selvfølgelig – alt hvad der i fortænkte 68-hoveder kan bruges mod Bush og Fogh skal føres frem – uanset hvor idiotisk det er.

Nu vi er igang, kan vi måske også undskylde for Tsunamien, Urans atomvåben og og  orkanen Katrina?
