Amnesty International komt op voor Hezbollah spion


Amnesty International, dat ik normaliter hoog heb zitten, stelt een spion die in Israel is veroordeeld voor het doorgeven van informatie aan Hezbollah, voor als een mensenrechtenactivist die onterecht door het regime wordt gestraft. Een politieke gevangene dus.
The truth is here: "On October 27, 2010 Haaretz reported that Ameer Makhoul, the director of Israeli-Arab NGO Ittijah, "confess[ed] to charges of spying, contact with a foreign agent and giving information to the enemy." Makhoul, as head of Ittijah, has a background of anti-Israel activities characterized by demonisation and hate rhetoric. For example, an Ittijah email during the Gaza war claimed, "the IDF is turning Gaza into kind of an extermination camp, in the full sense of the word and with the full historical relativity."
 
Hezbollah en Hamas hebben mensen in Israel nodig om hun aan waardevolle informatie te helpen voor hun aanslagen en andere vijandige activiteiten. Het is gangbaar dat landen achter zulke spionnen aanzitten. Zo heeft Libanon niet zo lang geleden een aantal mensen opgepakt die werden verdacht van spioneren voor Israel, en Iran heeft er verschillende de doodstraf gegeven. Hamas hangt tegenstanders van zijn beleid soms op met deze smoes, ook al is er verder geen concreet bewijs.
Het zou mooi zijn als Amnesty zich kan beperken tot de werkelijk politieke gevangenen, zij die om het hebben van een mening of het strijden van hun democratische rechten worden opgepakt en gemarteld. Hulp bieden aan Hezbollah, dat Israel van de kaart wil vegen, valt daar niet onder.

Amnesty supports a confessed Hezbollah spy

From TheJC:

Amnesty International has put out a Press Notice "urging the Israeli authorities to end their harassment of Palestinian human rights activists" "after a veteran Palestinian campaigner was jailed for nine years earlier today and given an additional one-year suspended sentence. Ameer Makhoul, a longstanding Palestinian activist, was convicted on various counts of having contact with enemies of Israel and espionage after a plea bargain agreement at his trial. He was originally charged with an even more serious offense, "assisting an enemy in war", which could have carried a life sentence, but that was dropped by the prosecution when he agreed to a plea bargain."
........
"Ameer Makhoul is well known for his human rights activism on behalf of Palestinians in Israel and those living under Israeli occupation. We fear that this may be the underlying reason for his imprisonment."

Amnesty International in London has had a succession of Israel-bashing speakers such as Ben White. I have offered them Ruvi Ziegler - an Israeli lawyer studying in Oxford who is an expert on the security fence - but they have stonewalled.
Shame on Amnesty International for its Israel-bashing biased agenda.
A Hebrew article shows that he passed on the names of six potential spies for Hezbollah as well as other information that was encrypted - showing that he had something to hide in his "innocent contacts."

But when someone hates Israel and pretends to care about "human rights,"  it appears that Amnesty will automatically side with him, no matter who it is.
