Human Rights Watch’s new report so full of errors and lies it is a disgrace, especially for an organization that claims – on the inside cover of the report – to “scrupulously investigate abuses” and “expose the facts widely.” For the abuses here were committed by Human Rights Watch, not by its habitual target Israel.
