Human Right Watch accept Jew-hate

Human Right Watch leader refuses to label Iran’s calls to erase Israel.

The leader of Human Right Watch is not willing to condemn Iranian Jew-hate.
The leader of Human Right Watch Kenneth Roth is not willing to condemn Iranian Jew-hate.

The Wall Street Journal’s David Feith, as assistant editorial features editor with the paper, obtained internal HRW emails and published last week a report, headlined “Dancing around genocide,”.

He wrote about alleged HRW bias against Israel and an internecine conflict within HRW’s top leadership about the group’s head, Kenneth Roth, and his failure to take Iran’s calls to destroy Israel seriously.

The Journal reported that Sid Sheinberg, HRW’s vice chairman, wrote in an email, “Sitting still while Iran claims a ‘justification to kill all Jews and annihilate Israel’ is…a position unworthy of our great organization.”

According to the newspaper, Roth wrote in one email, “Many of [Iran’s] statements are certainly reprehensible, but they are not incitement to genocide. No one has acted on them.”

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has stated that “Israel must be wiped off the map,” while former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has openly contemplated firing a nuclear missile at Tel Aviv.

Roth told the Journal that, although a committee may look into Iran’s anti-Israel rhetoric, he believes the country is not inciting genocide against the Jewish state. Instead, he argued, the push to label Tehran’s calls for Israel’s destruction as genocidal is “part of an effort to beat the war drums against Iran.”

In an email to The Jerusalem Post on Saturday, Prof. Gerald M. Steinberg, the head of the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor, wrote, “This is a blatant example of Roth’s indifference to genocidal threats and human rights abuses when these target Israel.”

“Roth, who has controlled Human Rights Watch since 1996, has consistently demonstrated a obsession with attacking the Jewish state, and the people he selected to lead HRW’s Middle East and North Africa division are also infected with this deep bias,” Steinberg wrote.

“While Gaddafi was ranting against the Zionists, HRW embraced the regime as ‘human rights reformers.’ HRW’s studied silence in the face of Iran’s genocidal threats further demonstrates this organization’s moral bankruptcy.”

My comments:

One of the grave errors in modern world history, was the International failure to confront Hitlers promise to find a “total solution” to the “Jew-problem”.

If Human Right Watch (HRW) had existed 80 years ago, they would have found no fault in the Nazi-party’s ideology based on Jew-hate.  The HRW would have branded critics of Hitler as “war mongers”, who tried to use Hitlers antisemitic statements as an excuse to militarize Europe.

Such is the nature of Fascism. They blame their critics to be the real “Fascists”. History repeat it self. Those who excuse the Islamic Republic of Iran, would be the same who would have excused a man like Adolf Hitler.

One thought on “Human Right Watch accept Jew-hate

  1. Amen!….This may not have anything to do with this post, or maybe so…but it is on my mind so heavily as I read it…I went to the 7-11 the other night in the middle of the night,..had an enormous craving..so we went…after there could not find anything specific…just grabbed a few things..after wondering why I was there…all of a sudden I was told..”Keep your head down and Don’t look up till I tell you it is Okay”….I did so, and a few minutes passed as I stood still discussing odds and ends to seem casual…then I was instructed to ‘go to the counter to pay for the items and keep my head down and not to look up…I did so…as we entered the car and backed out so not to be able to see what was in the store,….I was told why…there was a worker there that had ears almost to his shoulders….NOT EAR RINGS..his ears..lacked an inch or less to touch his shoulders…I saw this in one of the news issues ….it’s not new, and what I deal with daily this is but one thing that is more signs of the insanity of Evil….

    Yes, Evil is repeating itself and claiming Christians are the problem we have to press forward in this race…and be ever attentive to ‘the voice’ that warns us even in simple things…He has His reasons, we are to Obey!…( The true Christians who won’t be turned from God’s Holy Word or stopped from Praying for Israel and Jerusalem will obey His Voice because ‘they know His Voice’)…
