Amnesty International issued a press release today.
Israel-Hamas prisoner swap casts harsh light on detention practices of all sides Obviously it wants to show equivalence. God forbid it should criticize only Hamas. It was not a "prisoner exchange". It was an outrageous ransom paid for a hostage. It only mentions the 477 terrorists that were released calling them "prisoners" rather than terrorists. What about the other 550? Then it lumps them all into "detainees" in the OPT which I surmise includes Gaza.
Gilad Shalit was held captive for five years by Palestinian armed groups
The prisoner exchange involving Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and 477 Palestinian prisoners highlights the need for the humane treatment of all detainees in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), Amnesty International said today.
This deal will bring relief to Gilad Shalit and his family after an ordeal that has lasted more than five years. Many Palestinian families will feel a similar sense of relief today when they are reunited with their relatives, many of whom have spent decades under harsh conditions in Israeli detention," said Malcolm Smart, Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa Director.

So whats new ???
AI I dont think has ever helped Christians but there was a time that Christian churches use to support them with a ton of money...
I am ever amazed that any American is puzzled by the behavior of Amnesty International. This is an organization that began with the most worthy of goals - to make certain political prisoners were not tortured, killed or otherwise mistreated. It has been taken over by the left and often has had Jewish leadership that has been chronically critical of Israel (and under Bush, critical of the US as well, though silent under Obama).
The real question is why are so many Jewish-Americans members of the Democrat party?

Now THAT is a headline! :’) Thanks tedbel.
It’s disturbing to contemplate that AI is only one of the *enablers* for the truly evil SODCBs who are terrorists.
