Israel refuses visa for Human Rights Watch, accusing group of ‘Palestinian propaganda’

Israel has denied a visa to an investigator from Human Rights Watch (HRW), accusing the group of engaging “in politics in the service of Palestinian propaganda”.

Human rights groups expressed shock at the decision and said it was the latest in a series of steps taken by the Israeli government against NGOs which criticise its record on human rights.

Israel said the decision was not a blanket ban on HRW and insisted it had no broader plan to crack down on international human rights groups.

But that’s exactly what they are!

    Most of these human rights organizations were infiltrated by left-wing extremists years ago and are therefore fake.
