Anna Baltzer is a Jew who makes false charges against Israel. This puts her in high demand as a speaker at churches and universities who relish a Jew condemning Israel.
In his article today about the allegedly peaceful and nonviolent Bilin demonstrations, Richard Boudreaux of the Los Angeles Times discounts the rock-throwers who have injured some 200 Israeli soldiers and border policemen.
The Daily Show features a segment with Palestinian activist Mustafa Barghouti and anti-Israel extremist Anna Baltzer defaming Israel.
Amnesty International's Troubled Waters – Palestinians denied fair access to water, recycles old and false anti-Israel charges, condemning Israel's supposed use of Palestinian water. But, in fact, Palestinians are using Israeli water. Typically, Amnesty also claims that Israeli settlements have luxurious pools while Palestinians are parched. Again, Amnesty is dead wrong – Palestinians have pools galore, including this one in Jenin, shown in the photo at left.
Human Rights Watch, the NGO that has become more famous for its obsessive attempts to delegitimize Israel than for its stated mission to promote global human rights, is becoming less and less credible. Now, even its founder and former chairman, Robert Bernstein, has publicly dissociated himself from that NGO's agenda.
Breaking the Silence (Shovrim Shtika) is a foreign-funded, Israeli NGO whose mission is to publicly vilify Israel's military. British media outlets have overlooked journalistic norms to promote this NGO's questionable allegations.

Human Rights Watch condemns terrorism but effectively denies Israel’s right to stop terrorism and to defend itself. Before joining HRW, senior staffer Joe Stork supported Israel’s destruction and denied its legitimacy. It appears then to make perfect sense that Stork works for HRW.
In journalism, half truths — otherwise known as errors of omission — can mislead the public almost as much as an outright lie. Terry Gross recently misled by conveying only part of what human rights groups have said about Gaza.
The New York Times prejudicially describes as "human rights advocates" a group that includes people who advocate against the existence of the Jewish state, accuse Israel of "genocide," and explicitly legitimize violence.
