Journalists attending Amnestys July 29 press conference should be aware that its "Gaza Platform" does not employ credible research methodology or fact finding standards, and therefore should avoid taking its claims at face value.
Amnesty Internationals "Gaza Platform" substitutes interactive graphics and digital technology for substantive fact-finding and credible research methodology.
Commissions lack of military expertise and limited fact-finding also evident
In parallel to the forthcoming report of the UN Human Rights Council's Commission of Inquiry on Gaza, NGO Monitor and UN Watch have prepared an independent, fully-sourced, systematic, and detailed book on issues related to the 2014 Israel-Hamas conflict.
In anticipation of the publication of Amnesty Internationals Annual Report, NGO Monitor notes that given the organizations strong ideological biases, particularly targeting Israel, journalists, diplomats, and academics must examine each claim independently.
Amnesty International accusations are reckless, blatantly biased, and reflect the lack of a credible research fact-finding methodology. Amnesty lacks the expertise and credibility to analyze or assign blame for deaths in the context of violent confrontations in the West Bank.
