A Twitter thread between Amnesty Middle East Director Philip Luther and an apparent EoZ fan:
Luther didn't answer about the amazing coincidence.
But in the end, Luther cannot spot Palestinian lies because he is part of an organization that lies all the time. I tweeted to him one provable lie showing that Amnesty's Gaza Platform inflated the number of dead Gaza civilians by 200 even if you accept UN figures:
.@philipluther @Amnesty lies, says at least 1665 civilians killed in Gaza 2014, UN(!) says 1462. (Truth is lower.) pic.twitter.com/LQVZTMUeeO— ElderOfZiyon (@elderofziyon) October 30, 2015
What is amazing is that the congenital anti-Israel UN showed far more intellectual honesty than Amnesty.
In August 2014, the UN claimed a virtually identical number of civilian victims as Amnesty does now, 1,666. In the months since then they actually discovered 200 "civilians" were really terrorists and they modified their statistics accordingly. The real numbers are far lower still, as we've seen from the Meir Amit Center, but at least the UN showed some amount of caring about the truth.
Amnesty, many months later, deliberately used the initial and provably wrong data to build an entire website dedicated to demonizing Israel.
They know very well that they were lying. They know very well that their "researchers" were using garbage data. They've read my many articles about it. And Amnesty has made the conscious decision to allow the lies to remain on their website rather than correct it as they said they would.
So it is very rich that Amnesty, an organization that deliberately chooses not to correct clear lies, is aghast that anyone can accuse Palestinian Arab "eyewitneses" to be lying.
After all, these "witnesses" are saying exactly what Amnesty wants them to say, so they must be reliable, right?
