Amnesty International have long been considered anti-Israel for a number of reasons. Let’s add another one to the list.

There is no truth to the rumors the award will look like this

Singer-actor-activist Harry Belafonte is one of two 2013 recipients of Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Awards to be handed out Tuesday in Dublin, Ireland, along with Pakistani teen human rights campaigner Malala Yousafzai.

U2 singer Bono and former Pink Floyd singer and songwriter Roger Waters will present Belafonte and Yousafzai with the organization’s highest award “recognizing individuals who have promoted and enhanced the cause of human rights through their life and by example.”

“Since its birth, I have been devoted to the principles for which Amnesty International stands,” Belafonte, 86, said in a statement. “It is an honor to receive the recognition being bestowed. Amnesty International’s stand on any universal abuse to human rights has been courageous and is our moral compass.

Yep, that’s right. Amnesty International have decided Roger Waters, of all people, should present the award.

Mind you, given Harry Belafonte is receiving the award, this should not be surprising.
