Human rights organisations undermine Israel
Many in Israel have long argued that certain 'human-rights organisations' only seem to care about one side in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. These organisations will go to the ends of the earth to stanb up for the rights of Palestinians while Israeli rights are ignore and overlooked. This disparity is even more bizaree when talking about Israeli organisations like B'Tselem and HaMoked which frequently ignore issues relating to Israeli security.
An official statement submitted several days ago to the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court accused these human rights organizations that represent Palestinians and residents of East Jerusalem in court of working against Israel's interests.
The statement called HaMoked: Center for the Defense of the Individual and B'Tselem - Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories - organizations "that undermine the existence" of the State of Israel, "besmirch" the state and its security forces, and "cause it damage in the world."
Hopefully the truth will come out in a court of law that these organisations in particular and many 'human rights' organisations in general are constantly working against the rights of Israelis and their state.
