Amnesty International Sticks The Knife Into Israel Over Elor Azaria Verdict

In the wake of the manslaughter conviction of IDF soldier Elor Azaria, “human rights” organization Amnesty International has sprung into action to applaud the verdict, which clearly shows the rule of law in Israel (despite some inflamed passions and sentiments that the terrorist got what he deserved).

Well, not really.

Let’s see what we have here.

  • Characterization of the verdict as offering “a small glimmer of hope” but only “amid the rampant impunity for unlawful killings in the Occupied Palestinian Territories”
  • A quote by one of their people to repeat the same point, namely that the conviction is “a rare occurrence in a country with a long record of using excessive and unwarranted force”
  • If you missed both of those, not to worry. They then repeat the quote in VERY BIG BOLD LETTERS

They also refer to the terrorist who stabbed the soldiers as a “Palestinian man involved in a knife attack.”

No, no, no. To use a decidely unkosher analogy, in a bacon and eggs meal, the chicken is involved but the pig committed. The terrorist here was no chicken – he was a pig.

But there’s more.

Yet another quote bashing Israel, repeated in BIG BOLD LETTERS. Plus they refer to the spate of terror attacks – and the soldiers’ neutralization of the terrorists in commission of these attacks – as a “bitter cycle.” Although they clearly see Israel as more culpable, especially since there have been more palestinians  (i.e. terrorists committing the attacks) killed than victims.

Brian was right in his post – while the world should acknowledge we have the most moral army in the world, this won’t happen. And Amnesty’s disgusting response is proof positive of that.
