Human Rights Watch: But Sarah...
""Human Rights Watch provided the international community with evidence of Israel using white phosphorus and launching systematic destructive attacks on civilian targets. Pro-Israel pressure groups in the US, the European Union and the United Nations have strongly resisted the report and tried to discredit it," said Sarah Leah Whitson, director of HRW's Middle East and North Africa Division." But Sarah: you forgot to mention that HRW also equates the suffering of the colonized with the suffering of the colonizers. But Sarah: you forgot to mention that HRW is obsessed with its "pro-Israel donors"--as your director calls them--and that this obsession affects its coverage. But Sarah: you refused to mention that Israeli lives are always treated as more precious with the lives of Arabs. But Sarah: you forgot to say that Hamas kitchen-made fireworks' "missiles" are treated by HRW as more lethal than bombs from Israeli fighter jets. But Sarah: you forgot to mention that you never produce a report critical of Israel without matching it with a report critical of the victims. But Sarah: you forgot to mention that pro-Israeli groups are not as critical of your reports as anti-Israeli groups.
