Since January 1, Amnesty International has tweeted about TripAdvisor’s listing of Jewish tourist spots in Judea and Samaria 13 times. Here’s the latest:
Let’s compare and see which are the most important human rights issues for Amnesty this year:
Based on its tweets, TripAdvisor is one of the worst human rights abusers in the world – more worthy of attention than China (which mentioned Uyghur Muslims 3 times), more that Syria, more than Russia.
Human rights groups are not transparent as to how they allocate their resources. They accuse nations of acting with “impunity” but they are just as guilty of that charge given that there is no oversight on how they raise and spend their money. Their politics trumps actual human rights. There is no other way to explain why Amnesty acts like TripAdvisor listings are considered worse human rights abuses than the entire countries of China or Syria, and places with terrible human rights records like Turkey are practically ignored. These aren’t “human rights” organizations, they are political organizations using “human rights” selectively to promote their agendas.
Human rights groups demand accountability from their targets. The world must demand no less from human rights groups themselves.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
