Amnesty International Director of Faith and Human Rights Tied to Muslim Brotherhood and Jihad
Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 17 Aug 15 | Unknown

Posted on 08/17/2015 11:10:42 AM PDT by LSUfan

A senior employee of Amnesty International has undeclared private links to men alleged to be key players in a secretive network of global Islamists.

The charity was unaware that the husband of its director of faith and human rights featured in documents released after a criminal trial at which connections were revealed between British supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood and Arab Islamists accused of plotting to overthrow a Gulf state.

Yasmin Hussein was also linked to a Yorkshire-based aid agency that was banned by Israel for its alleged funding of HAMAS terrorism…

Amnesty International: This organization directs a grossly disproportionate share of its criticism for human rights violations at the United States and Israel.

Amnesty International: Soros Propaganda – NGOs Gone Wild

April 12, 2015

Earlier I wrote about the dangers of NGOs. The problem, at the time, was that China was kicking out NGOs, or forcing them to register themselves, and these NGOs were getting all bent out of shape about it. They were crying foul, saying that “China was afraid of its own citizens” because it was shutting down some NGOs.

What’s the problem with these NGOs? They’re used as a conduit of regime change. They’re used to overthrow a government, and to turn its people against its government. Victoria Nuland famously was quoted that the US spent over 5 billion dollars to subvert Ukraine. In 2012, a NGO called TechCamp trained over 200 people to manage the Maidan riots in Ukraine.

These NGOs do more, they’re used to provide cover to the slaughter behind regime change. The previous article above was about its donation to Human Rights Watch, and what evils they were up to. This article today is specifically about Amnesty International.

Question: What can you buy for $844,088? $844,088 was the donation that Soros made to Amnesty International. That was a 2013 figure, I’m sure he’s provided far more funding since then. What does he get for his money; what are his intentions?

Right now, he’d just love to saddle Ukraine with 50 billion dollars in debt. Soros is looking to be Ukraine’s central banker. The amount of money to pillage, when you’re in control of the money, is nearly limitless. Being in control, however, that’s the hitch.

How does Soros control Ukraine? First, it needs a coup d’etat. Soros has admitted to being responsible for that. Next, he needs to beef up the Ukraine army, that’s what the 50 billion dollars in loans would be used for.

Lastly, he needs to (as best as possible) capture the hearts and minds of Ukrainians, and Americans, swaying their opinion that what he’s doing is a good deed. This is where the NGOs come in. He gave 100 million dollars to Human Rights Watch, and tasks them with telling lies about atrocities committed by the Ukraine army.

Recently, AI came out with a report blaming the pro-Donetsk rebels on the summary execution of one individual. The entire report was about Ihor Branovytsky, an individual allegedly summary executed at Donetsk airport. AI goes on to extrapolate this experience into suggesting it happened far more often.

Look, I’m not here to say Donetsk rebels didn’t do it. I have no evidence to suggest otherwise. However, AI’s “evidence” is that he had a mark on the face, on a video. And later, he was killed. There was no video of the killing, however, there were accusations from other prisoners who apparently witnessed it.

Here’s my comments about Ihor Branovytsky: #1) AI doesn’t have proper evidence either. When you’re at war, having a “mark on your face” could have happened in a number of circumstances, and does not imply, to the exclusion of all else, that he was tortured. #2) That he died at a later date, when the fog of war is happening, when Ukraine was doing everything within its power to take the Donetsk airport (which was in Donetsk territory, awarded to Donetsk rebels according to the 1st Minsk peace agreement), does not imply, to the exclusion of any other explanation, that he was summary executed. #3) That Ukrainian soldiers witnessed a summary execution is evidence, yet it is not unbiased. Nowhere in the report does it give Donetsk rebel’s side of the story.

This is the type of thing that a $844,088 donation buys. It’s a hit piece, a hack job, an attempt to soil the reputation of Donetsk rebels, thereby making the fight against them more palatable, for western Ukrainians, as well as the American public (who ultimately foot the bill).
Whataboutism 2.0

Whataboutism was coined during the first cold war. Its definition is along the lines of the US accusing the Soviet Union of something, and the Soviets would return with “What about … ?”, where the “what about” referenced contains a similar scenario, where the events are nearly identical, and yet the United States hands aren’t clean. Apparently, this annoyed the CIA and made the US government pull its hair out. In complete frustration, they coined the term “whataboutism”. Essentially, it has to do with US exceptionalism, where the US becomes completely confused when their foreign policy agenda doesn’t match their own rhetoric.

Since it bugged the US so much as to have to create a new word, I’ll use it as well. I’m all about whataboutism. Would you like a whataboutism 4 course meal? Here you go! But before I continue, let me just state this, so you know my official position:

I, Jennifer Cohagen, hereby condemn any summary execution. If Ihor Branovytsky was, in fact, summary executed, I would expect whoever perpetrated the fact to be held accountable. Let this perpetrator be identified, and to give their own story. Until such time as his story is heard, until it is determined that his word is not credible, until he is tried and found guilty by a jury of his peers, he is innocent until proven guilty.

Would you like some whataboutism with your whataboutism? What about:

UN urges Kiev to investigate reports on tortures being resorted to by defence battalions: The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights is urging Kiev to investigate reports on arbitrary detentions, kidnappings and tortures being resorted to in the country’s east by battalions accountable to Ukraine’s Defence and Interior Ministries
Kiev Regime’s Official Policy for East Ukraine is Starvation, Torture, Rape and Murder 15-20 women prisoners at penal colony #107 are taken to the military camp every night and raped by the Azov battalion.
UN rights watchdog accuses Kiev forces of torture, inhumane treatment of civilians arbitrary detentions, torture, and enforced disappearances of people suspected of ‘separatism and terrorism’. Most of such human rights violations appear to have been perpetrated by certain voluntary battalions or by the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU)
OSCE: the Mass Graves in Donbass Could Occur due to Trafficking in Human Organs and there is a witness testimony that these bodies lacked internal organs, so the issue about existence of such trade has been raised
War Crimes Committed by Ukraine Military in Donbass: From Illegal Arms Trafficking to Human Organs Trade Reports from Ukrainian military hospitals suggest that in some cases human organs were extracted and exported to the United States and Europe to be used for transplant
400 Bodies Found in Ukraine Mass Graves Are Evidence of War Crime. Lavrov Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Wednesday that more than 400 bodies have been discovered in mass graves near the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, in what he described as “horrific” evidence that pointed to a war crime.
Mutilated Bodies Of 286 Young Girls Found Buried In Ukrainian-Nazi “Rape Camp” As to the “rape camp” established in Krasnoarmeisk by the Azov Battalion, where these hundreds of young girls were sexually brutalized, mutilated and then buried

Donetsk fighter Motorola states:

“I state officially that there is no single prisoner of war left on the republic’s territory. That’s why statements of some European, American human rights organizations that we allegedly torture prisoners of war cannot be called otherwise than nonsense,” the Donetsk news agency quoted Morozova as saying.

Amnesty International: concerned about this one individual, as they should be. However, they are not concerned at all about accusations against the Ukraine army, where the accusation is not in regards to one incident, but hundreds, if not thousands.

If there are any Kiev supporters who have read this far, what about it? Oh, I’m not allowed to ask “what about it”? That’s “whataboutism”? You won’t answer any questions until you’ve heard every last detail about this one person who was allegedly summary executed? This one person’s summary execution is the focus point, nothing else is to be considered?

“whataboutism”: simpleton’s argument claiming there’s no need to explain hypocrisy, there’s no need to explain American exceptionalism. Soros paid a hefty sum of cash to have his propaganda printed in Amnesty International. AI therefore only focuses on any intelligence damning to rebels. AI is simply not allowed to criticize Soro’s army in Ukraine, for fear of being defunded.

But, don’t just take my word for it. Here are others who have evidence against Amnesty International:

To: MarvinStinson

August 22, 2012 - Mistakenly considered by many as the final word on human rights worldwide, it might surprise people to know that Amnesty International is in fact one of the greatest obstacles to real human rights advocacy on Earth. In its most recent 2012 annual report (page 4, .pdf), Amnesty reiterates one of the biggest lies it routinely tells:

“Amnesty International is funded mainly by its membership and public donations. No funds are sought or accepted from governments for investigating and campaigning against human rights abuses. Amnesty International is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.”

This is categorically false. Amnesty international is indeed funded and run by not only governments, but also immense corporate-financier interests, and is not only absolutely entwined with political ideology and economic interests, it is an essential tool used for perpetuating just such interests.

Amnesty International’s Funding

Finding financial information on Amnesty International’s website is made purposefully difficult - specifically to protect the myth that the organization is “independent.” Like any organized criminal operation, Amnesty separates compromising financial ties through a series of legal maneuvers and shell organizations. Upon Amnesty’s website it states:

“The work carried out through Amnesty International’s International Secretariat is organised into two legal entities, in compliance with United Kingdom law. These are Amnesty International Limited (”AIL”) and Amnesty International Charity Limited (”AICL”). Amnesty International Limited undertakes charitable activities on behalf of Amnesty International Charity Limited, a registered charity.”

And it is there, at Amnesty International Limited, where ties to both governments and corporate-financier interests are kept. On page 11 of Amnesty International Limited’s 2011 Report and Financial Statement (.pdf) it states (emphasis added):

“The Directors are pleased to acknowledge the support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Oak Foundation, Open Society Georgia Foundation, the Vanguard Charitable Endowment Programme, Mauro Tunes and American Jewish World Service. The UK Department for International Development (Governance and Transparency Fund) continued to fund a four year human rights education project in Africa. The European Commission (EuropeAid) generously awarded a multi-year grant towards Amnesty International’s human rights education work in Europe.”

Clearly then, Amnesty does take money from both governments and corporate-financier interests, one of the most notorious of which, Open Society, is headed by convicted financial criminal George Soros. In March, 2012, it was reported that a Bloomberg’s report, “Soros Loses Case Against French Insider-Trading Conviction,” indicated that an appeal based on a “human rights” violation against Wall Street speculator George Soros had been rejected by the “European Court of Human Rights.”

Soros, whose Open Society also funds Human Rights Watch and a myriad of other “human rights” advocates, literally attempted to use the West’s human rights racket to defend himself against charges of financial fraud in perhaps the most transparent illustration of just how this racket operates.

Soros, who was convicted and fined for insider trading in 2002 regarding French bank Société Générale shares he bought in 1988, has built an empire out of obfuscating global criminal activity with the cause of “human rights.” His support, as well as that of the British and European governments, of Amnesty International aims solely at expanding this obfuscating.

Amnesty International’s Leadership

Amnesty’s leadership is also telling of its true agenda. Suzanne Nossel, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, for instance was drawn directly from the US State Department - again, utterly contradicting Amnesty’s claims of being “independent” of governments and corporate interests. Nossel continued promoting US foreign policy, but simply behind a podium with a new logo, Amnesty International’s logo, attached to it. Amnesty International’s website specifically mentions Nossel’s role behind US State Department-backed UN resolutions regarding Iran, Syria, Libya, and Cote d’Ivoire.

Image: Same lies, different podium. Suzanne Nossel previously of the US State Department, is now executive director of Amnesty International USA. Her primary function of dressing up aspirations of corporate-financier global hegemony as “human rights advocacy” has not changed.

It has been documented at great length how these issues revolve around a decades long plan devised by corporate-financier interests to divide, destroy and despoil these nations who are seen as obstacles to US global hegemony. In the case of Syria specifically, it was revealed that the current “human rights” catastrophe stems back to a malicious 2007 conspiracy documented by “New Yorker” journalist Seymour Hersh, between the US, Israel, and Saudi Arabia which sought to purposefully fund, arm, and deploy sectarian extremists to undermine and overthrow the Syrian government - this knowing full well the human tragedy that would unfold.

Nossel’s “contributions” then are simply to dress up naked military aggression and the pursuit of global corporate-financier hegemony with the pretense of “human rights” advocacy.

A glance at reveals that each and every front the US State Department is currently working on and has prioritized is also coincidentally prioritized by Amnesty International. This includes rallies and campaigns to support US State Department-funded Russian opposition groups (currently fixated on “Pussy Riot”), undermining the Syrian government, toppling the government of Belarus, and supporting the Wall Street-London created Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (still called by its British Imperial nomenclature of “Burma” by Suu Kyi herself).

Amnesty International Betrays Real Human Rights Advocacy

Amnesty does indeed cover issues that are critical of US foreign policy, toward the bottom of their websites and at the back of their reports. Likewise, the corporate-media selectively reports issues that coincide with their interests while other issues are either under-reported or not reported at all. And it is precisely because Amnesty covers all issues, but selectively emphasizes those that are conducive to the interests of immense corporate-financiers that makes Amnesty one of the greatest impediments to genuine human rights advocacy on Earth.

Images: Manufacturing Dissent. “Free Pussy Riot” (above). Ironically, FIDH is directly funded by the US State Department via the Neo-Con lined US National Endowment for Democracy (NED) as well as George Soros’ Open Society. “Russia: Stop Arms Transfer to Syria!” (below). If the US State Department wants it, be sure that US State Department-run Amnesty International will stage a demonstration for it - and regardless of size or legitimacy of the demonstration, expect the corporate-media to make it headline news.

Ordinary people are given the false impression that “someone is watching out” for human rights abuses, when in reality, all Amnesty and other organizations like it are doing, is managing public perception selectively of global human rights abuses, fabricating and/or manipulating many cases specifically to suit the agenda of large corporate-financier interests. This can be seen when entire reports out of Amnesty or Human Rights Watch consist solely of “witness reports” compiled from accounts of US-backed opposition groups.

In the rare instance that a report includes references to actual photographic, video, or documented evidence, such as Human Rights Watch’s 2011 “Descent into Chaos” (.pdf) report, deceptive language is intentionally included along with throwaway passages to enable selective reporting and spinning by not only the Western corporate media, but by a myriad of faux-NGOs funded and run by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch’s sponsors and affiliates. The Descent into Chaos report, regarding Thailand, was promply and amply spun and manipulated by US State Department-funded faux-NGO and “rights advocate” Prachatai.

When people erroneously believe that credible organizations are handling “rights advocacy” they will not only become complacent, they will become negligent of their own responsibilities to objectively examine potential abuses and speak out against them. Wall Street and London’s corporate-financier interests have filled a void - that should be occupied by their greatest opponents - instead with a large advocacy racket of their own creation. Not only are they given a free pass to abuse human rights globally, they’ve actually used their controlled opposition to attack their opponents.

It is clear that Amnesty International is by no means an “advocate” of human rights, but rather an affront to human rights advocacy. It goes without saying that it should be boycotted out of existence and at the very least, identified as illegitimate and fraudulent - from its funding to its compromised leadership.

Additionally, we the people must tackle real violations of each others rights at the grassroots - because it is absolute folly to believe that global spanning organizations, funded by corporate-financiers, echoing the agenda of governments driven by special interests has our best interests and rights in mind.
