He is, of course, the author of last week’s Human Rights Watch report, which claimed that IDF soldiers murdered white-flag-waving Palestinian civilians in cold blood. He is also the deputy director of HRW’s Middle East and North Africa programs. We already knew fromÂ NGO Monitorthat he hasâ€”to put it politelyâ€”a rather extremist history on all matters Israel.
But now there is a better accounting. Ben-Dror Yemini of the Israeli newspaperÂ Ma’ariv has a blockbuster article laying out the ugly truth of Stork’s history. The Hebrew isÂ available here; below is a complete English translation. That HRW would place in a senior position someone who has written in explicit support of terrorism against Israel, lauded the murder of Israeli athletes at Munich in 1972 as providing “an important boost in morale among Palestinians,” and stated that “Zionism may be defeated only by fighting imperialism”â€”this should be the final verdict on a cretinous organization’s already tattered credibility.
