Human Rts Orgs Nominate Anti-Israel Pro-Terror Woman for HR Prize

Will Mona Seif become, like Samira Ibrahim, one whose social media activity rocketed her to a spot in the global limelight, but then caused her ignominious downfall as well?

The man in the photo is a BBC journalist whose name is Jihad Misharawi.  His baby son, Omar, was killed by rocket fire during the November conflict between Israel and Hamas.  Initial reports blamed Israel for the baby’s death, but almost immediately questions were raised about this assignment of blame because of the timing, the logistics and other pictures of where the baby was killed.  By early March it was conclusively determined that Omar Misharawi’s death was caused by a Hamas – not an Israeli – rocket.  But inconvenient facts don’t seem to bother Seif, who also got the baby’s name wrong, using the father’s first name and the baby’s first name instead of the last name. This is the picture she attached to her Nov. 15 Tweet:

Although this tweet was no longer on Seif’s Twitter feed as of late Tuesday evening, April 30, it was still there earlier in the day and was captured in this exposé of Seif’s anti-Israel, pro-terrorism activity.

UN Watch, an NGO which monitors activity by the United Nations and NGOs that participate in UN activity and promotes human rights, shared a letter it sent to Kenneth Roth, the executive director of Human Rights Watch, bringing Seif’s pro-terrorism and violence Twitter activity to his attention, and asking that HRW “immediately cancel Ms. Seif’s nomination, on grounds of her public advocacy of violence against civilians, terrorism and war crimes, which is in complete violation of the Award criteria of ‘promotion and protection of human rights.'”

It will be worth watching to see whether Seif is removed as a contender for the “Nobel Human Rights Prize,” or whether this award shall become a travesty like when Yassir Arafat was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize.
