Disturbing: Radical anti-Semite nominated for international human rights award

“Hero” is becoming an awfully loose term these days.

A group of ten “human rights NGOs,” including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, has nominated Egyptian activist Mona Seif for this year’s Martin Ennals Award for Human Rights Defenders. Seif’s admirers are thrilled:

Outstanding, huh? Let’s take a closer look at the woman being considered a human rights champion:

She even condemned Ennals Award committee member Human Rights Watch:

Is this really the face of international human rights?

UN Watch, a Geneva-based organization that monitors the United Nations, has written a letter to the executive director of Human Rights Watch condemning the decision to honor Seif, a “preacher of terror.”

Other Egyptian human rights activists have registered their outrage at Seif’s nomination:

Earlier this year, the U.S. State Department decided to honor Egyptian anti-Semite and terrorist sympathizer Samira Ibrahim as a “Woman of Courage.” Fortunately, after being faced with righteous backlash, the department reversed its decision. Let’s hope the Martin Ennals Award committee does the same.

    I’ve never figured out why Jews are the sole and only faith group other than Christians for whom conservatives have any respect. Conservatives reckon hatred of atheists and Muslims a virtue, and despise Baha’is, Buddhists, Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, Wiccans, Zoroastrians, etc.

    • truckee22

      Conservatives ‘hate’ religion? Thats rich, coming from the party thats doing everything in its power to take religion out of this country, and actively promotes anyone who hates Isreal, and Jews. Conservatives, true conservatives, respect people of all faiths who dont interfere in others practice of their faiths.

      • thehappyhedgehog

        That’s absurd. At most Democrats seek to prevent the making of narrowly faith-based government policies and laws. I’ve never heard a Democrat propose abolishing religion as a private pursuit, or ban public worship and proselytizing.

        • truckee22

          No. The “Abortion Rights” party is so supportive of religion. The party of the ACLU is always working to support religious expression right? The party of Obamacare and Sandra Fluke respects religious institutions wishes to not fund abortions and contraceptives, right?

    • Gordon

      From which planet are your transmissions being beamed? Seriously? First of all you’re blurring the line between Christians and conservatives, which is typical of someone who doesn’t really know either. Secondly the “conservatives don’t like brown people” trope is a sad case of Liberal projection. Really, all you see is brown skin and react. I work with many Hindus, some Sikhs and believe it or not Pakistani and Indian Muslims. I love working with them all. I find educated people of color to be infinitely preferable to whiny, privileged white kids.

    • Clayton Grant

      What dimension do you call home?

    • annoyinglittletwerp

      Save it. When I lived in Chicago, I saw quite a few Sikh’s at tea parties and pro-second amendment rallies. There are conservative atheists, conservative wiccans, hell-are are even patriotic muslims. We welcome ALL patriots. Most of the lack of tolerance that I’ve encountered at least-I’m a scary Joooo-has come from YOUR side. Actually-ALL of it has come from your side.

      • thehappyhedgehog

        I doubt you’re a Jew. Jews don’t use the anti-Semitic slur “Joooo,” as you just did. Also, the handful of Jewish Republicans tend to have some class and avoid sliming Democrats and liberals as anti-Semites, knowing, after all, that Jews lean heavily Dem (and all but one in Congress are Dems).

        And evidently you think David Duke, Pat Buchanan and Brooks Bayne are all liberals. Most amusing!

        • annoyinglittletwerp

          I’m a cradle conservative reformadox Jewish woman- born and raised. Lost family in the Shoah. I spelled it ‘Jooo’ to MOCK the Jew-haters. A lot of conservatives do it for that reason. I’m also a VERY long-time regular commentor over @ Hot Air . I write EXACTLY like I do here. Duke at al are Paleos who opinions mirror those of the of Jew-hating left.

          I’ll end my comment like I tend to do w/ HA’s trolls:
          Get it. Got it. Good.

      Every single conservative I know has absolute reverence for Sikhs, because if not for their courage and martial prowess, the second largest country in the world would be Muslim.

      • kilthan

        Seriously. A big part of their faith is defense of others. they go out of their way to protect the weak, the innocent, the poor, the sick, etc. As a Christian, I wish more Christians were as dedicated to protecting those that need it.

    • Section 9

      Well, no. Conservatives respect people who have decided not to allow themselves to be shoved into boxcars and ovens anymore.
      Unlike you lefties, who just can’t wait for your beheadings, or so it appears….

      • Harlan Hikaru Fox

        Lefties think they’re going to be the ones DOING the beheadings. They honestly think they can co-opt and manipulate Islam, when they’re the ones being manipulated BY it. And before any kneejerk proggie trolls throw out the race card, one doesn’t have to be an Arab to be a Muslim, and if they even THINK about trying to imply that, it’s racism on _their_ part.

      • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

        Conservatives respect people who have decided not to allow themselves to be shoved into boxcars and ovens anymore….unless they’re Palestinian.

        • Section 9

          That’s odd, I don’t recall seeing any Palestinians being shoved into boxcars and ovens? Do you? Perhaps you can enlighten us on this Palestinian Holocaust that we appear to have overlooked?

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            oops my mistake. i didn’t realize a holocaust could only occur with trains and ovens. please forgive me and carry on supporting the ethnic cleansing in the middle east.

          • Garth Haycock

            You seem to think that there is a parallel between how the Jews were treated by the Nazis and how the Palestinians are treated today. You couldn’t be more wrong, unless you can demonstrate how aggressive toward the Nazis the Jews acted.

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            There is absolutely a parallel. You’re also ignoring how well the Jews were treated by Palestinians when Palestine was given to them by the British who, incidentally, had no ownership of the land in the first place thus it was not theirs to give. Ever hear of the Balfour Declaration? Check the date on that and then tell me why a couple of world wars were fought…they finally got it in 1947 after the holocaust. And to add insult to injury the Israelis are using the holocaust as an excuse to commit their own against the Palestinians.
            beware: graphic images:

            Also to answer your request for demonstration on how the Jews treated the Nazis prior to WWII here you go; they were trying to choke Germany out financially because they wanted to ruin the country

            http://www.biblestudysite.com/judeawar.htm

          • NCRelite

            I’m sure they were treated quite well by those that follow a book that instructs them to kill jews

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            Since we’re picking on depraved religious texts I’ll mention the talmud. sickening. and way to steer the topic away from Israeli atrocities…I’ve seen this tactic before somewhere.

          • NCRelite

            Depraved religious text… one offers 72 virgins in heaven if you kill yourself, the other says ‘thou shall not kill’

          • Garth Haycock

            Yes, I’m familiar with the Balfour Declaration, though it was never about the extermination of any group.

            If I wanted to take the time, I could find photos of injuries and deaths the Palestinians have caused the Israelis. They are no different than the photos you’ve chosen to link.

            As to your proof of how the Jews treated the Nazis, there are two things that invalidate your “proof”:

            1. Nick Goggin is associated in his alleged ministry with Dr. Arnold Murray, who is the preeminent leader in the Christian Identity Theology movement. The CIT and Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s Black Liberation Theology are two sides of the same coin. Both teach hate and supremacy.

            2. Goggin is also the guy who predicted that the world was going to end at 9:34 AM on March 18, 2003.

            In summary, your points are invalid because they are based in white supremacy and that is not an objective view of what happened in Germany when the Nazis were in charge. There is absolutely no parallel between the Holocaust and what’s happening between Israel and the Palestinians.

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            The primary intent of the photos I linked was to show the parallels of what’s happening to the Palestinian land and people and what happened to the Jews in Germany. I understand that the Palestinians are killing Israeli women and children it’s unacceptable for anyone to do it and I’ll condemn that for as long as I live.

            With regard to the War on Judea info I posted I just did a google image search and that was the first I found. Pardon the messenger.

          • Garth Haycock

            It’s not so much the messenger as it is the message. If that was the first you found with a google search, so be it. My advice would be to do a bit of research about what your posting, even if it is a google search. What I learned about Goggin and Murray was from a google search as well and I spent maybe 10 minutes reading about the both of them.

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            Point taken…I honestly didn’t read anything beyond what I thought was the text of the newspaper image.

          • Garth Haycock

            Fair enough.

          • NCRelite

            if the palestineans put down their weapons there would be no fighting, if the israelis put down their weapons there would be no israel

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            right…..

          • NCRelite

            Listen the Romans kicked out the Jews and re-named the land Palestine. Then the Ottoman Empire eventually took it over, then they lost it in WW1. The Jews were granted land as were the Arabs. The Palestinian arabs wanted nothing to do with the Jews whatsoever and instigated pogroms against them. Eventually the surrounding Arab states waged war with Israel, and they got their butts kicked and Israel annexed land to defend themselves. Eventually they conceded some of that land. It was never and will never be enough. The goal of the Palestinians is eradication of the Jews. If they got their wish, what would be in Israel’s place? Another basketcase country that persecutes gays, women, and violates human rights. Arabs living in Israel want the country to remain under the control of the Israelis, according to polls. http://www.israeltoday.co.il/NewsItem/tabid/178/nid/22612/Default.aspx

          • Lucky Leisuresuit Larry

            Great post. Unfortunately because the land is tied into religion it will forever be “God gave it to us” and so we must therefore kill you. Not sure why I care so much…it’s got nothing to do with me. Maybe it’s that the USA is always dragged (or we insert ourselves) into the shenanigans. Petro dollar here we come…

      I was always told that “prejudice” means “ignorance” – that is, someone who is pre-judging another based on not knowing the facts. That seems to be the case with this hedgehog character, clearly a prejudiced individual.

      Why is islam the only religion respected by liberals?

    • NCRelite

      the source of your confusion is your own ignorance

    • Roger Taylor

      Perhaps your ability to comprehend what we actually believe is blocked by the view of your intestinal wall.

      Your statement is so utterly at odds with reality as to be beyond hope of redemption.

      By accusing us of bigotry, you are simply exposing your own.

  • stillinthe60s

    Didn’t think anything could top giving a Nobel Peace Prize to BO but this is a topper. Next thing you know the leftists will want to give terrorist’s a hundred grand in government benefits so they have time to study Jihad.

    Can’t believe someone who fights against Jewish rights is being given a human rights award. And the liberals defending her are just as disgusting, because liberals don’t believe Israel has the right to defend themselves from terrorism. Every rocket Israel launches at the muslims is a direct retaliation towards the countries launching rockets at them. But then again, we can’t expect liberals to understand rights.

  • NCRelite

    these folks believe it’s Israel’s fault they’re living in squalor… perhaps they should take a look at their own backwards culture

    • ELC

      These people wouldn’t know where to begin to solve their internal problems. Its far easier to blame Israel. They will always live in squalor because they want to and then they can continue to put the blame on others. Isn’t it far better to live in tent cities?

  • ELC

    Well we all know how sick this is when a person of her caliber is to get a human rights defender award when she’s a blatant anti-Semite. Something is wrong with this picture.
    Then again nothing surprises me anymore.

    As a Proud Semitic, and Anti-Zionist, Before and after knowing Mona Seif, and Being one of the Members of the No Military Trials for civilians, I do not regret the fact that we helped someone like Maikel Nabil, Despite that almost all of Us as a Group is 100% against his views, We always said he’s still a civilian, he shouldn’t be sent to a military trial (period).

    I think right now that says alot about who we are, who he is, and who the UN is. Without Double thinking about it.

    And If YOU Have spent alittle more time googling more tweets of people like Sally Zohney (Who’s in the UN Women By the way) and Dalia Ezzat and MANY Other Tweeps, You’ll find Pleasurable Plenty of Stuff You call “Promoting Terrorism” Stop listening to the Rascals of a Country and Making them “Face for Tolerance and peace(Piece) Keeping”.
