Amnesty International Researcher Loves Terrorists (VIDEO)
In the Amnesty video advertising its “#50Days4Gaza” and “Gaza Platform” bash-Israel initiative, we see Amnesty researcher Saleh Hijazi.
Gidon Shaviv once mentioned Hijazi in an op-ed published in YNet:
If Amnesty wants to maintain impartiality, it should disqualify Saleh Hijazi from working on Israeli issues. Hijazi, a Palestinian born in Jerusalem and raised in Ramallah, has a clear lack of objectivity in this regard. In 2005, he worked as a Public Relations officer for the Office of the Ministry of Planning in Ramallah and in 2007 he was listed as contact for the NGO “Another Voice” – under the group’s signature “Resist! Boycott! We Are Intifada!”
Hijazi has a “special” conflict of interest with regards to administrative detention in particular. On March 9, 2011, while as a researcher for Human Rights Watch, he spoke at a UN conference where he described how his father was supposedly arrested by the Israeli authorities “when the Israeli military could not find an activist neighbor.” How can Hijazi be impartial when he is simultaneously claiming to be a victim of the very same country on which he is reporting?

Hijazi’s bias is actually much more clear.
Once his profile photo on Facebook was Leila Khaled, notorious terrorist and airline hijacker.
More recently Hijazi showed his admiration for Khader Adnan, a hero of Islamic Jihad:
This video shows exactly how much Adnan supports human rights:
Yes, a “human rights” researcher openly admires someone who advocates blowing up Jews.
In any other place or time, this would be enough to get someone fired. But Palestinians who support terrorism and murdering Jews get a free pass – because their cause is perceived as noble by the moral midgets at Amnesty.
Clearly Hijazi is anything but impartial. And clearly Amnesty isn’t concerned about it.
Indeed, it might be a job requirement.
