    This is context-less. I’m busy but allow me to recommend that you look up the information that has come out about the head of HRW (which issued this report) and his views on Israel and the murders of the athletes at Munich. Storck.

    I’m liking that lack of context. I was in a decontextual mood…

    His name is Joe Stork and it is beyond incredible that HRW would use somebody like him in their Israel/Palestinian section. This organization had lost all credibility after Durban 2001 anyway, but to appoint such a biased operator to write reports goes beyond anything imaginable.

    Oh wait! I forgot! Human Rights Watch goes to Saudi Arabia to raise money!!! Then when they go there, they use their reports on Israel as sales tools to increase contributions; I guess if that’s possible for a “human rights organization,” so is anything else.
