Holding Human Rights NGOs To Account


The Elder has  broadcast a petition aimed at human rights organisations that studiously ignore the only reasons they have for existing when it requires some courage. Says the Elder:

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International have publicly stated that antisemitism is a human rights issue, yet they have not once condemned the endemic and virulent Arab antisemitism that is seen daily by millions in the Arab media.

In July, a highly anticipated mini-series with an all-star cast will be broadcast throughout the Arab world. However, the writer and director of the series make no secret of the fact that the point of the series is to demonize Jews from the time of Moses to today. In other words, the series is meant to incite Arabs to hate Jews. This is a quintessentially human rights issue and it is outrageous that Human Rights Watch and Amnesty have ignored this, as well as many other antisemitic broadcasts in Arabic-language media. Their condemnation can show the Arab broadcasters that such hatred is not acceptable and that Arab nations must be held to the same human rights standards as every other nation on Earth.
