On Human Rights Watch and Israel

From comrade Eyal: "I don't follow Kenneth Roth, but his comment you quoted annoyed me for a
different reason than yours:

What about the the deeply discriminatory regime in the 1948 territories? _That's_ where you have "deeply discrimatory regime". The West Bank is under _military_occupation_, with shooting at civilians, road blocks, confiscations of land, destruction of houses and agricultural areas etc.  etc. Describing the problem in that situation as a "discriminatory" aspect of the regime, be it deep or shallow, is itself a white-washing of reality."
