Israeli authorities deported 227 Palestinians and detained 225 others during January-August. In addition, 7,200 settlers accompanied by Israeli officers and soldiers stormed the Al-Aqsa compound during the same period.
In 2014, nearly 11,000 Jews stormed the Al-Aqsa compound during the year (a number that is 28 percent higher than during 2013, and almost double that of 2012).
This year, April witnessed the highest percentage of violations; 1,412 settlers accompanied by 93 officers and soldiers stormed the Al-Aqsa compound.
Among the provocative acts documented by Euro-Med researchers against Palestinians in Jerusalem were performance of Talmudic prayers near Muslim worshippers, beating, throwing rubbish, cursing, death threats and preventing worshippers from reaching the mosque.
We've previously seen that this "human rights" group had counted terrorists as "children" in their list of victims of Israeli "war crimes." It has blamed Israel for Gaza men beating their wives. It has illustrated one of its biased reports with an antisemitic cartoon. It employs people who actively support terrorism.
But the wording of this press release, which mirrors that of every Arab critic of Jewish human rights, proves that the EuroMed Human Rights Monitor is simply an Israel-bashing NGO run by Arabs with a "human rights" face. (In fact, the report they reference is not available in English or French as of this writing, but it is available in Arabic, indicating the language it is originally written in.)
