Israel expels director of Human Rights Watch for ’supporting boycott’

A human rights researcher, being deported from Israel over his alleged boycott advocacy, said Sunday he will continue doing the ’important, urgent work’ of documenting violations in Israel and the Palestinian territories from abroad. Omar Shakir has been ordered to leave the country after the Supreme Court upheld a deportation order.

Adios. Really wish these idiots would instead spend some time in China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, etc to argue for civil rights.

Omar Shakir apparently a human rights expert. The guy who wished for the elimination of Israel, compared Jews to Nazis, and showed support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad? That human rights expert? This guy just runs campaigns to try and demonise the worlds only Jewish state as an evil that must be eradicated. good riddance, no one likes anti-Semitic pro-terrorism sympathisers.

Israel/Palestine news is stupid. The way I see it: Neither side has clean hands. Israel won the war in 1948 so it's their land, tough luck. Imagine if we went back to pre-WW1 borders because of "human rights issues". Germans had to flee what is now Polish land. Lots of Pakis would go back to India and vice-versa, the ME would be under control by an authoritarian Turkish state that commits genocide, etc, etc. Palestinians have 2 options: make Israel their home or make a home in a different country.

HRW, UN HRC, Amnesty... Today's antisemites disguise as human rights activists. A few decades ago they were using conspiracy theories and pseudo-science, and earlier, medieval religious prejudices. Haters gonna hate. Life's too short.

Funny how Human rights Experts are ones who shout violence onto others. Humanists are realistically the only Human rights kind of people

A bit of a storm in a tea cup, but Israel's tetchiness over this issue continues to show. As the CEO of HRW said, Israel is now no better than the likes of Egypt or Iran in throwing out or forbidding the entry of HRW staff. So then you cannot profess to be above them and be an exemplary free nation if some of your actions mirror theirs.
