The Watch Dog that shamed its founder with its outrageous and fabricated blackmailing of Africa
Dear Patriotic Global Citizens, friends of African Union and Greater Ethiopia Without Borders!
Re: It is time to make HRW accountable!
Making the Watchdogs accountable at the International Criminal Court of Justice for blackmailing Africans and Israel is a task for anew generation of Global Patriotic Network.
It is time to put to task those who collaborate with known terrorists and act their PR machine
It is time to make HRW account for its crime against humanity and its blatant blackmailing of a noble people.
The hypocrisy has to stop and we need to demand accountability.
HRW and its crisis, from the pen of its founder*is worth reading and it is attached below. An organization that has gone amok with prejudice, blackmailing and out right criminal activities against the Ethiopian people and Israelis.
What a shame we can continue to entertain such criminals and do not bring them to ICC (International Criminal Court of Blackmailing), sooner than later.
HRW that shamed its own founder with its criminal blackmailing activities against the people of Africa and Israel need to see their day in court to account for their crime against the noble and courageous people of Ethiopia, Africa and Israel.
It is pay back time and time to account for HRW terrorist activities, blackmailing a people and a nation of more than one billion standing.
Blackmailing the future, security and hope of a people with erroneous treacherous continuous defamation, psyops, propaganda is the worst terror of them all. We need patriotic promotion and pre-emption for the truth by challenging the evil hate and terror mongers!
Here is the evidence One, Two. Three and look forward to your perception and perspectives

According to a statement the Ministry of Foreign Affairs sent to ENA on Wednesday, the allegations made by Human Rights Watch simply do not reflect reality.
The statement said in January this year, the Development Assistance Group, a 26 aid agency consortium in Ethiopia, investigated similar allegations.
Its report found that safeguards for donor programs were largely working well, that the programs were achieving results and the monitoring mechanisms were sufficient, the statement said.
Ethiopia is currently achieving considerable success in development. It has reached four of the Millennium Development Goals and is on track for two more.
The government has been and remains entirely committed to transparency in its dealings with the international community and with aid donors on the basis of mutual trust and responsibility, and of accountability and transparency.
The statement said it is impossible to believe from its latest report that these are principles to which Human Rights Watch is prepared to adhere to in any genuine manner.
It is, therefore, hardly surprising that Human Rights Watch should try to threaten the provision of development aid to Ethiopia. Indeed, this would appear to be an attempt by Human Rights Watch gratuitously to blackmail the international community as part of its ongoing vendetta against the government of Ethiopia, the statement said...(Mofa)
HRW Biased Report
Rights Watchdog, Lost in the Mideast
At Human Rights Watch, we always recognized that open, democratic societies have faults and commit abuses. But we saw that they have the ability to correct them — through vigorous public debate, an adversarial press and many other mechanisms that encourage reform.
That is why we sought to draw a sharp line between the democratic and nondemocratic worlds, in an effort to create clarity in human rights. We wanted to prevent the Soviet Union and its followers from playing a moral equivalence game with the West and to encourage liberalization by drawing attention to dissidents like Andrei Sakharov, Natan Sharansky and those in the Soviet gulag — and the millions in China’s laogai, or labor camps.
When I stepped aside in 1998, Human Rights Watch was active in 70 countries, most of them closed societies. Now the organization, with increasing frequency, casts aside its important distinction between open and closed societies.
Nowhere is this more evident than in its work in the Middle East. The region is populated by authoritarian regimes with appalling human rights records. Yet in recent years Human Rights Watch has written far more condemnations of Israel for violations of international law than of any other country in the region.
Israel, with a population of 7.4 million, is home to at least 80 human rights organizations, a vibrant free press, a democratically elected government, a judiciary that frequently rules against the government, a politically active academia, multiple political parties and, judging by the amount of news coverage, probably more journalists per capita than any other country in the world — many of whom are there expressly to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Meanwhile, the Arab and Iranian regimes rule over some 350 million people, and most remain brutal, closed and autocratic, permitting little or no internal dissent. The plight of their citizens who would most benefit from the kind of attention a large and well-financed international human rights organization can provide is being ignored as Human Rights Watch’s Middle East division prepares report after report on Israel.
Human Rights Watch has lost critical perspective on a conflict in which Israel has been repeatedly attacked by Hamas and Hezbollah, organizations that go after Israeli citizens and use their own people as human shields. These groups are supported by the government of Iran, which has openly declared its intention not just to destroy Israel but to murder Jews everywhere. This incitement to genocide is a violation of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.
Leaders of Human Rights Watch know that Hamas and Hezbollah chose to wage war from densely populated areas, deliberately transforming neighborhoods into battlefields. They know that more and better arms are flowing into both Gaza and Lebanon and are poised to strike again. And they know that this militancy continues to deprive Palestinians of any chance for the peaceful and productive life they deserve. Yet Israel, the repeated victim of aggression, faces the brunt of Human Rights Watch’s criticism.
The organization is expressly concerned mainly with how wars are fought, not with motivations. To be sure, even victims of aggression are bound by the laws of war and must do their utmost to minimize civilian casualties. Nevertheless, there is a difference between wrongs committed in self-defense and those perpetrated intentionally.
But how does Human Rights Watch know that these laws have been violated? In Gaza and elsewhere where there is no access to the battlefield or to the military and political leaders who make strategic decisions, it is extremely difficult to make definitive judgments about war crimes. Reporting often relies on witnesses whose stories cannot be verified and who may testify for political advantage or because they fear retaliation from their own rulers.
Significantly, Col. Richard Kemp, the former commander of British forces in Afghanistan and an expert on warfare, has said that the Israel Defense Forces in Gaza “did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare.”
Only by returning to its founding mission and the spirit of humility that animated it can Human Rights Watch resurrect itself as a moral force in the Middle East and throughout the world. If it fails to do that, its credibility will be seriously undermined and its important role in the world significantly diminished.
