- ISM found guilty of hiding Islamic Jihad Terrorist
This report focuses on ICJ’s 3 Palestinian affiliates; Al-Haq; Law; and PCHR. There are no affiliates from Israel. Although all 3 organizations declare a commitment to universal human rights values their reports tell a different tale.
Amnesty International immediately cried murder over the death of Rachel Corrie. They ignored an IDF commission and immediately engaged in a political campaign to stop US arms sales to Israel. Such action clearly goes beyond Amnesty’s mandate.
A senior member of Islamic Jihad was arrested by IDF troops while hiding in the offices of the International Solidarity Movement. The IDF spokesperson warned: "this is not the first time that terrorists make use of offices and property of international and humanitarian organizations."
