"This reality stands in sharp contrast to the cynical exploitation of human rights rhetoric by powerful NGOs, as demonstrated in the infamous 2001 Durban conference. And in anticipation of your visit to the Middle East, Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch (HRW) wrote an open letter to you (July 10, 2008). Roth discussed many issues, including allegations regarding Israel’s "significant human rights abuses" and "violations of international humanitarian law." As with many previous HRW statements, Mr. Roth’s letter manipulates and misrepresents international law. His words seek to create a false and immoral equivalence between a country rightfully defending its citizens against indiscriminant attacks, including the one in Jerusalem that preceded your arrival, and the terrorists that perpetrate these attacks."
