As we've been reporting, the international community is in an uproar over Israel's designation of six Palestinian NGOs as being part of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine terror group, and that these groups redirect international funds for terror.

International human rights NGOs, the UNHRC and others are claiming that Israel is trying to silence criticism and is acting like an authoritarian regime by shutting down human rights groups.

Essentially none of the critics admit that there are links between the groups and the PFLP. Yet the groups were either founded by the PFLP directly or they are run by PFLP members.

In my previous post, I looked at the 2000 political vision of the PFLP - a 225-page manifesto that made no distinction between terrorism and political activity. 

That document didn't say that the PFLP planned to use human rights groups as a political tool against Israel. At the time it was written, though, it had already founded some of the groups that are now being celebrated as human rights organizations. This characterization is uncritically swallowed by Western NGOs.

You can see that even these organizations consider themselves to be part of the resistance against Israel. For example, the Union of Palestinian Women's Committees, founded by the PFLP, describes itself both as a "progressive feminist organization" and "an integral part of the Palestinian national movement that struggles to get rid of the Israeli occupation." Their summer camp for girls glorified the second intifada where the PFLP used suicide bombs to murder Israelis as the "uprising that our people fought" and a source of pride.

As we've seen, the PFLP makes no distinction between its political and social movements and its support for murdering Jews.  These "human rights" groups don't consider Jews to be human. And they are being defended by the international human rights community.

The PFLP itself has its own unusual definition of human rights.

A PFLP representative gave a speech in Cuba to mark the group's 45th anniversary in 2012. Here is what he said about human rights:

On this anniversary, we reaffirm our commitment to our goals, principles and inalienable Palestinian national rights. Some of these have been recognized and approved by the norms, principles, conventions, international resolutions, international law and human rights. The first of these rights is the right of the Palestinian people to resist the occupation by all means and methods.
"All means and methods" is the Palestinian way of saying "terror attacks."

This is the lens through which any honest person must look at these organizations that claim to uphold a progressive, human rights agenda. To them, human rights includes murdering Jews for their cause.

I cannot find a counterexample where these purported human rights groups admit that Israel Jews are human or that they condemn terror attacks against Jews in Israel. (I even posted a bet in Twitter that no such statement exists.)

When Human Rights Watch, Amnesty, B'Tselem and the UN all defend the PFLP's social organizations, they are defending a philosophy where murdering Jews is celebrated.
