Human Rights Watch chief mocks Jews

Following is an open letter from UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer to Human Rights Watch chief Ken Roth, which went viral on Facebook. Dear Ken Roth[0]=68.ARA_jCmlz0u-21mUfenKBU5GNoECpDhlZQMh8RGAzUsL-CqpJ3UMuO_24l-amYycRRAf_y3Kt9ol2z9rh2q-Lv-X3QwpbQEDr0aVocNdyhbTem8Fifd7vB1j4PkPvDIGkfr0PG-oHXi_9liubyKO092o1X1hF-mRib-YjNADN1CRcdE0m0xjEDtEpW2YjJocSlL15Nm5lfmczZOGPzM6SLtpvBJj-Yy5DiEVYpqHd_tqi9GR9MmBjtSC5EjP6uj9qmo14n6JGctl3KW5Mw3tX6Kwb9FDeQInc6oP7NSzlxUaACYVidnGjKFM5ynisoEs6DdxFr-djFPVDX38Z9OSkQ6UdvUXgQ&__tn__=-R
Iranians students protest in the street at night
Over the past 24 hours, in wake of Iran’s admission that its forces shot down the Ukrainian passenger airliners over Tehran, courageous men and women in cities across Iran have been risking their lives to protest the murderous regime. Facing tear gas attacks, protesters tore down regime posters of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani; others chanted “Soleimani was a murderer, his Leader is also a murderer!”
Yet during this dramatic period, the world’s richest and most powerful international human rights organizations have been turning a blind eye to the Iranian protest movement in what may be its greatest time of need, with 0 tweets for them from Human Rights Watch, as well as 0 tweets from senior officials such as HRW chief Ken Roth, and EU Media Director Andrew Strohlein; and 0 tweets from Amnesty International, its Acting Secretary-General Julie Verhaar, or Amnesty UK director Kate Allen.
Instead, Amnesty is tweeting about America, Human Rights Watch is retweeting itself about America, and Ken Roth is tweeting about America and himself.
