... Am-Nasty, an organization that cares more about politics than helping the powerless. In fact Am-Nasty HARMS the cause of Human rights much more than it helps. This supposed Human Rights groups has a political obsession with harming Israel that makes it ignore some of the real human rights abuses in the world.
* In 2008, Amnesty again focused disproportionately on Israels response to aggression from Gaza, and led the NGO campaigns accusing Israel of collective punishment and war crimes. * Amnestys publications in the region portray Israel as among the worst human rights violators in the Middle East (second only to Iran). In 2008. Amnesty issued more in-depth reports (9) and Wire articles (22) on Israel than any other country. * The data indicate that media attention and ideology, in contrast to universal human rights, drive Amnestys agenda. Amnestys anti-Israel press releases consistently reflect the organizations role in influencing international public opinion. * Amnesty Internationals 2009 Annual Report (for events in 2008) further demonstrates the NGO superpowers highly biased approach. Amnesty grossly distorts the conflict, selectively reports events to erase the context of terrorism, ignores human rights issues not consistent with the political agenda, and repeats un-sourced and anecdotal claims. * Amnesty promotes an overwhelmingly Palestinian narrative of events, blaming Israel for the end of the Gaza ceasefire and the weapons smuggling tunnels under the Egyptian border. * The section on Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories employs highly exaggerated language and absurd allegations. Amnesty accuses Israel of unprecedented use of force in Gaza, virtual imprisonment, and bringing the Palestinians to the brink of human catastrophe, and charges that impunity remained the norm for Israeli soldiers.

I remember little, if any, criticism of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq coming from from them.
Things like this are getting too far out of control... These organizations like Amnesty Int’l, the ACLU, ACORN & 200 of its subsidiaries, etc. I am through with these orgs. I am telling everyone I know to stop any donating to these businesses. They are two-faced, self serving greed mongers. They don’t give a crapt about what they are truly supposed to be representing.
They all turn my stomach!
“Things like this are getting too far out of control...”
Unlike the “known” physical, we have no containment of the emotional.
This has occurred before, perhaps we shall endure.
Does anyone know where Amnesty gets their money? Hard to believe that anyone would be fool enough to donate to them.
Unfortunately too many people do
