Good ol' Human Rights Watch..you can always depend on them to exhibit Jew hatred and try to disguise it with their selective faux morality.
According to the head of the organization Ken Roth, abductions and killings by Hamas are not human rights violations as long as the target is soldiers:

Tunnels used to attack or capture civilians is a rights violation. Tunnels used to attack or capture soldiers isn't. http://trib.al/v8CCCj6
Of course, Arab terrorists, like anti-Zionists and terrorism groupies everywhere always jump to that next step...that since the majority of Israelis serve in the IDF at some point there are no Israeli civilians! I'm sure you've all heard that one before and so has Ken Roth. What he's done in so many words ids to legitimize terrorist attacks on Israel.
Now, Ken Roth has pretty much an impeccable anti-Israel record, to the point where the founder and former chairman of Human Rights Watch, Robert Bernstein, publicly disowned the organization in 2009 because of it. Roth is described as an 'international lawyer' who graduated from Yale Law School. He's been working at HWR since 1987, when he was hired by a fellow Left wing apostate Jew, Areyeh Neier, one of George Soros' creatures who now heads Soros Open Society. Roth has headed HRW since 1993. Shouldn't he actually know something about human rights as they apply to the laws of war?
For instance, the Geneva Convention distinguishes between 'lawful' and 'unlawful' combatants. Hamas perfectly fits the definition of unlawful because they do not wear uniforms, openly target civilians and are not fighting on behalf of a sovereign state.
Not only that, but Article 34 of the Fourth Geneva Convention specifically prohibits taking hostages even among soldiers, the very thing this cretin just endorsed. So again, by definition, unlawful combatants taking hostages is a human rights violation.
Oh, I know, its Jews and Israel, and there are always special rules for them, aren't there Mr. Roth?
You know what? The thing that bothers me most about people like Kenneth Roth is not their 'anti-Zionism' but their basic dishonesty. Hamas says flat out that their goal is genocide of all Jews worldwide, and they cite the Muslim scriptures to endorse it. The Ken Roths of the world grow up as Left wing apparatchniks who find Israel and the idea of a Jewish country abhorrent, because it embarrasses them with their Leftist counterparts. So they feel the need to prove their bonifides with stupidity like the above tweet.
And most of the time, they can't even be honest about that much. While they pretend to endorse the idea of Israel's survival, they want it ghetto-ized to indefensible borders while the West invests in 'Palestine' to the point where terrorist strikes against Israel make living there untenable, the Jews leave and it becomes just another Arab squat.
Unfortunately for them, the Jews aren't going to permit themselves to be marginalized like that, and they're staying.
The Ken Roths of the world can piss and moan about that all they like, but it isn't going to change.
You do know exactly what you can do, don't you Mr. Roth? You and the horse you rode in on?
