I Could See This Coming

Human Rights Watch denounced by its founder
"[Robert] Bernstein says that Human Rights watch has lost "critical perspective" on the [Israeli-Palestinian] conflict and that "Israel has been repeatedly attacked by Hamas and Hezbollah, organizations that go after Israeli citizens and use their own people as human shields." He calls Iran's policy "incitement to genocide" and a violation of " the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide."

He also takes the organization to task for them being fully aware of Hamas and Hezb'allah tactics that make war from populated areas, and that HRW turns a blind eye to the arms flowing into the region that will only serve to start the violence all over again."
Regrettably, it's not the only human rights watchdog that has been infiltrated with left-wing nihilists. Amnesty International is just about defunct in my book, and of course, the UN human rights agency, despite its recent rebuild, is still a den of grossly human rights violating dictators.

Sad, really. Some of these agencies used to do good work, even if it didn't result in much change. At least they once were responsible for calling attention to the real genocidal regimes on the planet, not inverting logic by accusing those who actually did the heavy work of overthrowing these tyrannies.

If you could see this coming, mayhaps you can tell me when they will be going ;-)

Some time in the future.

How's that?

Seriously, I don't know. There is so much disinformation being propagated by organizations with agendas (universities being among the biggest culprits) that I don't know when it will end. Some people are fighting back though. Look at Andrew Breitbart and David Horowitz or the folks at Pajamas Media.

It might take a long time or it might happen as suddenly as the fall of the Berlin Wall did. Or, maybe we really are a civilization actively in the process of committing suicide. Who knows?

It's very depressing and that's coming from a gal who is normally very optimistic. Sigh.

Oh, and I should have said good morning or is it evening? It's just starting to get light here. It must be toward the end of the day where you are.
