The Mouvement contre le Racisme, l’Antisémitisme et pour la Paix (Movement against Racism, Antisemitism and for Peace - MRAP) was established on May 22, 1949. In 1977, the organization changed its name to Mouvement contre le Racisme et pour l’Amitié entre les Peuples (Movement against Racism and for Friendship among Nations). The organization explains that it removed the word “antisemitism” since “the notion of racism de facto includes antisemitism.”
Amnesty International has resumed its one-sided campaign condemning Israeli responses to terror from Gaza. In the past month, AI has issued three updates, none of which contains any research. One statement copies problematic claims by a highly politicized NGO known as PHR-I, and another is a misleading press release on a report related to the death of a Reuters cameraman in Gaza. Amnesty officials justify this campaign by claiming that, Gaza has fallen off the international news agenda a false and irrelevant explanation.
The recently published statement of the IDF Military Advocate General contradicts claims and conclusion of several NGOs and the UN Schabas/Davis Commission of Inquiry regarding specific incidents from the 2014 Gaza War.
