Human Rights Watch (HRW) said in its annual report that Western governments must accept the new reality that Islamists have emerged as a political force in the Arab world.

Being that Islamist parties are “genuinely popular” said HRW’s executive director, Kenneth Roth, “ignoring that popularity would violate democratic principles.”

In another section of the report, HRW accuses Israel of “serious human rights violations” in using “unnecessary lethal force” and “hindering the rebuilding of Gaza’s devastated economy.”
