Amnesty International Justifying NATO Crimes

By no chance this is a comprehensive study or a descriptive article that covers the hypocrisy of international human rights organizations, nothing can cover that, not even an encyclopedia the size of Britannica'.

I will be just counting a few reasons why I, as a Syrian citizen, do not look at such organizations and their pledges to help me as a civilian citizen, or my people, or the oppressed people of the planet, in a positive way, we, and especially I, look at such organizations as merely accessories in the hands of the criminal organization dubbed NATO to justify its atrocities and blame the oppressed instead of the oppressors.

Syria has been the focus of the organization Amnesty International with a main narrative since the beginning of the crisis in this country midst of March 2011. The same narrative is ever repeated in a very suspicious way that serves only one purpose to demonize the Syrian government and lead only to one goal in justifying the 'humanitarian' destruction of this country, the same way previous 'humanitarian' interventions were carried out, and guess by who?

A fierce campaign because they love the Syrian people, out of a sudden, but obviously they hate the other people in the region and wider. Their latest report a day ago that went viral in all mass media outlets known for its warmongering stance and it reads: 'Amnesty accuses Syria of crimes against humanity' and I'll discuss some points in one of the news agencies mentioning this report, AFP: (http://j.mp/Kr7Ih4)

"DAMASCUS — Amnesty International on Thursday accused Syria of committing crimes against humanity to punish communities supporting rebels, as monitors reported a spate of car bombs and clashes which killed dozens more people.
The London-based rights group called for an international response after claiming it had fresh evidence that victims, including children, had been dragged from their homes and shot dead by soldiers, who in some cases then set the remains on fire.
"This disturbing new evidence of an organised pattern of grave abuses highlights the pressing need for decisive international action," said Amnesty's Donatella Rovera on the release of the 70-page report entitled Deadly Reprisals.
The advocacy group interviewed people in 23 towns and villages across Syria and concluded that government forces and militias were guilty of "grave human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law amounting to crimes against humanity and war crimes."
The allegations came as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that more than 14,400 people have been killed in Syria in the 15-month revolt against President Bashar al-Assad's regime, including 2,302 in the past month alone.
"There have been 14,476 people killed since March 2011, among them 10,117 civilians, 3,552 soldiers and 807 army defectors," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Observatory, told AFP.
Early Thursday, a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-packed vehicle in a Damascus suburb, wounding 14 people and damaging one of Shiite Islam's holiest shrines, state media and witnesses reported."

Above is an excerpt of the article found in the above link and just going through this report we find grave atrocities, whomever committed should be immediately apprehended and face justice. However, from the text itself we can read:

- AI accused Syria (they mean the government) of committing crimes against humanity to punish communities supporting rebels - let's stop for a moment: communities supporting rebels should be accused by AI of supporting terrorists carrying out atrocities against a legitimate government, isn't it? Why not accused by AI?

- .. as monitors reported a spate of car bombs and clashes which killed dozens more people - This is not mentioned by AI but by AFP, but why not mentioned by AI and why AI doesn't accuse those countries/ parties behind these 'spate of car bombs' of committing crimes against humanity especially they left dozens of people killed?

- This is very worrying to me personally as a Syrian citizen to learn of such barbarian atrocities: The London-based rights group called for an international response after claiming it had fresh evidence that victims, including children, had been dragged from their homes and shot dead by soldiers, who in some cases then set the remains on fire. - What kind of 'international response' is the London based group calling for? Aren't there UN observers on the ground inside Syria supposed to monitor such breaches to the UN proposed Annan plan that includes investigations in such crimes? What is there other than a UN response? NATO intervention?! Just wondering.. Wouldn't it be better if the London based group would call on the UN observers on the ground inside Syria to investigate these allegations and conclude it in their perioodic report to the UN Security Council, instead of calling on an 'international response' by the London based group to guarantee just is served to those victims and not crimes are buried below piles of new crimes due to 'democratizing' Syria the way other countries were 'democratized' by NATO? Libya and Iraq are the nearest and most recent examples.

The advocacy group interviewed people in 23 towns and villages across Syria and concluded that government forces and militias were guilty of "grave human rights violations and serious violations of international humanitarian law amounting to crimes against humanity and war crimes." - wait, aren't these towns the same ones 'supporting the rebels' as mentioned in the same report? Does their stories or accusations have an unbiased ground?

The allegations came as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that more than 14,400 people have been killed in Syria in the 15-month revolt against President Bashar al-Assad's regime, including 2,302 in the past month alone. - If the people in the West enjoy short memory, people in the East have longer memory and people in Syria has the longest of all. Syrian Observatory for Human Rights sought as a source for information again and again despite tens of articles refuting this one-man kiosk in London integrity, authenticity and legally basis, and you can read a previous blog post with details about this SOHR London based kiosk here: (http://j.mp/w4Pwlz) & you can search for the other articles, but have to warn you: you'll be returned with tens of thousands of news agencies' articles quoting this SOHR kiosk before you reach an unbiased report about it, itself, but here's another one I save your trouble finding: (http://j.mp/K6Qvof)

"There have been 14,476 people killed since March 2011, among them 10,117 civilians, 3,552 soldiers and 807 army defectors," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Observatory, told AFP. - Again, out of 14,476 people killed since March 2011, as quoted by the head of the London based kiosk SOHR who told a news providing agency, out of those there are 3,552 soldiers killed.. Who killed these soldiers? Why AI didn't mention these victims and call for an 'international response' against their killers and supporters? and out of the 10,117 civilians killed how many were pro-government civilians killed by the terrorist organization the FSA supported by NATO and based in the neighboring NATO member state Turkey? How many out of these civilians reported were killed by car bombs?

Early Thursday, a suicide bomber detonated an explosives-packed vehicle in a Damascus suburb, wounding 14 people and damaging one of Shiite Islam's holiest shrines, state media and witnesses reported." - sounds familiar? In nearby countries, namely Iraq, such car bombs targeting Shiite shrines are immediately called the work of Al Qaeda, which was created by the USA in case you forgot, to inflict strife among Sunni & Shiite Muslims in Iraq and elsewhere to serve a goal, always in favor of NATO and especially USA & UK, while in Syria, there's complete silence by the Amnesty International London based organization.

We, myself and my fellow Syrians and not the sudden Syrian Lovers in the west, call on Amnesty International NOT to interfere in the ongoing investigations carried out by the UN observers team on the ground inside Syria, and in case they get any information to share it with the UN team to ensure that just would be served at the end, and victims blood is not spilled again in vain, and families of those victims can find a calming closures for their losses.

In addition to the above, I would like to refresh some memories with reasons that keeps us suspicious with the real intentions of international organizations advocating human rights like Amnesty International itself, and such suspicions we have forces us to look with disgrace at reports by these organizations, such reasons as:

1. The Palestinian suffering. Where is the call by AI for an 'international response' for the continuous non-stop crimes against humanity in this forgotten country, not starting with the stealing of the lands of Palestinians, to massacres like Deir Yassin, Jennin (and by the way a team of AI investigated and reached clear evidence of a massacre yet no calls for 'international response' by his organization), actually the list doesn't end, you can search for yourself..

2. Sabra & Shatella Massacre, then Qana 1 1996, and Qana 2 2006 massacres. Where is the call of AI for an international response? While this just happened a day ago:


Peres receives Medal of Freedom from Obama at White House ceremony

Noting that Peres, now the president of the so called state of israel, was the Prime Minister of the same state, and was the commander of the infamous criminal war operation Grapes of Wrath that among the grave atrocities it included was the bombing of a UN Refugee Camp in the village of Qana south Lebanon. Where are the calls of Amnesty International for an 'international response' at least to apprehend the guy in the above picture instead of 'honoring him'?

A young lady coming in face of an israeli criminal soldier seeking to arrest a child in Quds (Jerusalem)
And if we start counting the crimes of israelis against Palestinians, Lebanese, Egyptians, Jordanians, Gazans and Syrians in Golan, we will never end.

3. We have not forgotten Afghanistan, have we? Where is the Amnesty International call for an 'international response' against the aggressors in this poor country in Asia? Or maybe, the aggressors are the same of those Amnesty International would call to 'internationally response'?! The country was invaded based on a series of lies and unfounded allegations, hundreds of thousands killed, injured and displaced, while AI barely mention this. Where are the calls at least for an 'international response' by AI to arrest all those criminals who led the invasion, planned for it, committed crimes against humanity, stained human history forever? And continuing to do so with a new tactic which is called Drones, and the guy in the above picture 'honoring' the criminal Peres, is the one authorizing the drones against 'suspected' targets of Al Qaeda fighters in Afghanistan and mostly leading to the deaths of tens of civilians (http://j.mp/KGetbs)

4. Iraq: Over a million killed post 2003, more than 500,000 children killed pre 2003 and the price was worth it, over 4 million displaced, not to mention the injured and the ongoing violence as we speak, based on a series of lies of the world's no. 1 war criminals. Where are the calls by Amnesty International for an 'international response' to these atrocities, while the criminals are not only loose, yet 'honored'.

5. Libya: Based on a series of unfounded allegations that the former slain (his killing alone is a crime against humanity) leader Gaddafi wanted to kill 5,000 'of his own people' a breach of international law was committed by NATO that led to over 60,000 (many reports put the number well above 120,000) killed civilians, tens of thousands injured, displaced, starved... Where are the calls of Amnesty International for an 'international response' to get NATO & its stooges out and bring them to justice?

If we saw Amnesty International call for 'decisive action' by ways of 'international response' for any of the above, we might have bought their new scam of 'loving Syrians' and thinking they seek justice in the world, and not only tools in the hands of NATO to justify its atrocities one after another. 

Above 5 examples are the most disgraceful recent ongoing ones, as in all crimes the list starts but never ends, and the more players trying to distort investigations, the chances that justice would be served vanishes.

Sorry Amnesty International and other Human Rights advocates in the west, but you are contributing to the killing and suffering of Syrians under the ugly guise of seeking their protection, and when it came to Syria, we will NOT ALLOW YOU, rather, we want to see why you covered all the crimes above and many more? We want to see you questioned, interrogated and punished for every cover up scam you committed throughout your 'activism' in the name of human rights.

They fool you, they keep fooling you and they enjoy fooling you, not because they're smart, it's because you're Foolable.

  1. Double-standards by AI, HRW etc. are well known. Here an article on the history of both organizations:

    Already Dr. Hermann's first article found an echo in the US and was defended against accusations:

  2. I got here a statement where I'd like to hear your opinion:

    "Everyone who is involved with the Syrian issue knows that the four cities of Houla (Taldo, Kafarlaha, Taldahab, al Tiba al Gharbiya) are exclusively Sunni all the families who lost members to this slaughter are identifiably Sunni."

    To me that sounds incredible. If that is true today, then mabye because all other citizens were silenced, driven out or murdered.

    1. Those four 'cities' are not cities, rather towns or smaller, and in Syria there're no 'exclusive' cities to start with. Syria is very famous for its diversity and mingling of religions and this is just a big fat lie to inflict strife and promote civil rights, especially that site is an Egyptian one and we know now how the Muslim Brotherhood, an extremist religion group taking grounds there.
