Human rights and jihadis are polar opposites.

And why are we surprised that any human rights org is tied to izzyslam?

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:
