Garlasco, suspended with full pay

The NYT’s John Schwartz reported last night that Human Rights Watch has decided to suspend the controversial military analyst Marc Garlasco with full pay, pending an investigation into his engagement with the hobby of collecting Nazi-era military memorabilia.
I think this is the right thing to do. Wish they’d done it some days earlier. Then we could be devoting more attention today to the very important findings of the Goldstone Commission.
Fwiw, I’m quoted a bit at the bottom of Schwartz’s piece.

    Yes, you’re useful to quote when an HRW worker is accused of Nazi sympathies. Nothing you say is considered newsworthy by the NYT when you are merely reporting on Israeli human rights violations.
    Funny how that works, isn’t it?

    Another small victory for the mindlessly strident pro-Israel partisans in their ongoing campaign to attack/smear anything and anyone, in whatever way possible, for criticising the actions of Israel.

    Oh yes! The *very important* Goldstone Commission, under the purview of the *very important* UN Human Rights Council, headed by that *very important* paragon of human rights, Nigeria.
    Do you think that Martin Uhomoibhi will be establishing a commission to look into the Nigerian government’s recent spate of ethnic cleansing?

    Harry, just exactly what is your accusation against Judge Goldstone and the other members of the panel? Do you think he is prejudiced because he is Jewish? I do not believe any Nigerians were included in the panel.

    like NGO-monitor said it very well, the whole work of this so called HR organisation must be investigated now. the whole work which based on this nazi-fetishist or the hardcore marxists/leftists Joe Stork&co.
    also, the whole staff of HRW must be investigated about their past and present haterad and actions against israel and the jewish people.
    such a investigation is important to restore the once good name of this organisation which has became something like “der stürmer” and is absoultly not able to produce neutral and objective reports about israel.

    Let’s see, we’ve got NGO Monitor reporting here, then there’s Campus Watch, then Media Watch. . . I’m sure there are others, such as a Senator/Congressman Monitor for every single one . . . The Big Jewish Brother is watching, always and relentlessly.

    anyone who supports garlasco, is also a supporter of the waffen-SS bastards who brought millions of the jews to the gas-chambers.
    garlasco isnt a harmless collector of wehrmacht or luftwaffe stuff. a harmless hobby-collector wouldnt say things like “The leather SS jacket makes my blood go cold it is so COOL!” .
    now i am not wondering that kassandar plays “eva braun” here. after all, we all know how much haterad she feels about the jews. i bet she looks under the bed if there is a jew hidding before she gets into the bed and sleeps.

    More than one thousand Palestinian martyrs, organ-theft victims
    ALGIERS- Swedish journalist Donald Bostrom, who disclosed the smuggling of organs harvested from the bodies of Palestinian martyrs by the Israeli army, affirmed Wednesday that the number of Palestinian martyrs who had their organ stolen by Israeli army exceeds 1000. Speaking at a conference staged by the National Federation of Algerian Journalists (FJA), at the Press House of Kouba (Algiers), Swedish journalist said the theft of Palestinian martyrs’ organs “began in 1960 and increased after the Intifada.” Journalist Donald Bostrom who published on August 17, 2009 a story entitled “they steal our children’s organs,” in Aftonbladet newspaper, said organ theft doesn’t concern Palestinian martyrs only, but also other foreign people killed in Palestine.

    Wonder where is the international media from this story is it as same as Mohammad cartons when all talking and calling Islam/ Muslims are terrorists , were is those who believes in freedom of speech and all of that?
