The neo-Nazi Democrats are again attacking Israel. 17 Democrat Party lawmakers penned a letter to PM Netanyahu, asking him to refrain from deporting the pro-BDS activist Omar Shakir, who is a member of the rabidly anti-Israel Human Rights Watch, aka HRW.
The letter states “To carry out our own human rights work and responsibilities in the US House of Representatives, we rely on the reports of Human Rights Watch for balanced accounts of human rights violations wherever they may occur, including here in the United States.” Not surprisingly the letter included signatures from the pro-Jihad anti-Semites Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
Contrary to what this letter states, Human Rights Watch does not report balanced accounts of human rights violations. This particular NGO has been accused of anti-Semitism by a number of Israeli government officials. The renowned law professor, David Bernstein, has called the group “manically anti Israel,” while NGO Monitor has accused HRW of having an anti-Israel agenda. In addition, the ADL has also accused Human Rights Watch of ignoring anti-Semitism.
Human Rights Watch should be re-named Jihad Rights Watch. Why should Israel allow an anti-Semite from Human Right Watch, who also supports Israel’s annihilation (by supporting the BDS Movement) to stay in Israel? Shakir is not concerned about human rights violations. If Shakir was, he would be condemning Hamas and Islamic Jihad for rocketing Israeli civilians. Shakir is only concerned about vilifying and slandering Israel.
Once again the Democrat Party is showing that they are ferociously anti-Israel and anti-Semitic. PM Netanyahu should absolutely reject this request. Not surprisingly AIPAC will allow this outrageous disregard for Israel’s security to go unchallenged. The Republican Jewish Coalition should strenuously condemn this outrageous request. #JEXODUS.
Democrats ask Netanyahu not to deport HRW official, Israel National News, May 8, 2019:
A group of 17 Democratic lawmakers wrote to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu last week asking his government to stop the planned deportation of senior Human Rights Watch official Omar Shakir, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Last month, an Israeli court approved the Interior Ministry’s decision to expel Shakir, a US citizen and director of the Human Rights Watch office for Israel and the Palestinian territories.
While the court gave Shakir until May 1 to leave Israel, the Supreme Court last week delayed the expulsion, issuing an injunction allowing Shakir to remain in Israel for seven days.
“To carry out our own human rights work and responsibilities in the US House of Representatives, we rely on the reports of Human Rights Watch for balanced accounts of human rights violations wherever they may occur, including here in the United States,” the letter by the Democrats read, according to The Washington Post.
The letter added that deporting Shakir would “reinforce the impression that Israel is increasingly hostile to human rights defenders.”
The letter was sent just days before the latest escalation in the south, when Gaza terrorists fired some 700 rockets at southern Israel.
