To mark IDC Herzliya’s 20th anniversary, we spent a day following Prof. Uriel Reichman, IDC’s founder and president, and Jonathan Davis, VP for External Relations, around its delightful campus.



Amnesty International: Our World Is a Dangerous Place

Judging by the sheer onesidedness of the parts I've read, I cannot see how the report can serve as a foundation for discussion.

Women’s rights

Legislation outlawing the shackling of women prisoners at all stages of pregnancy was passed in California in October. This was the first such law in the USA.

In June, legislation came into effect in Virginia requiring women to undergo an ultrasound before having an abortion.

Congress failed to reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act, which includes provisions to address the high levels of violence against Indigenous women and to provide protection and services for survivors of domestic violence.

Finally, I think these reports are valuable, if we learn to ignore just about all the editorial manipulations that turn the report’s enormous research into shoddy propaganda. Take it for granted that the facts presented in the report are not the only truth, certainly not the entire truth.

  1. אידיוטים. הם חלק מהסיבה שהעולם אינו בטוח.

  2. They lost me with this phrase "the rights of their citizens or the rights of those seeking refugee or opportunities within those borders". Non-citizens have NO rights whatsoever. If a country allows them in it is a PRIVILEGE not a right. If they can't even get that basic fact of international law the rest is so much garbage.

    AI is financed and controlled by kapo and open-nazi enthusiast soros. Like "Human Rights Watch," his money determines what the narrative is – and it is always in favor of exterminating the Jews.

    Throw stones to kill innocent civilians and your ilk would have us walk into the ovens in return? No surprise. I'd bet you keep a dog-eared copy of mein kampf by your bed where most civilized people keep a bible. Go home, beat your wife so you can feel a wee bit better, then stroke your goat

  6. Lowa Kay says:

    “Israeli forces carried out aerial and artillery attacks n the Gaza Strip periodically throughout the year and during an eight-day military campaign in November, killing many civilians and destroying homes and other civilian property. Palestinian armed groups periodically red indiscriminate rockets into Israel from Gaza, and red over 1,500 rockets during the November conflict.” wow, how revisionist of them!!! I think AI is SOOO useless, no one really takes them seriously anymore.
