Human rights: quotable quotes

Human Rights‘Today, in a world convulsed by violence and unbelievable brutality the lines between ‘us’ and ‘the terrorists’ have been completely blurred…

Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh Global News Centre

(BETHLEHEM)   The manufactured hysteria about the bombing in Paris will expand weapons manufacturing and sales around western countries. Arms manufacturer stocks are already booming and the Zionists and neoconservatives who own and run these companies will get even richer. Liberty and democracy will suffer as new freedom-restricting laws are passed using manufactured fear (like in the US after September 11, 2001).

Does Israel need a New law to frisk and search?

getty1Israel tells Father America it will pass new laws to “frisk and search” all Palestinians. Why? As a “security measure” for Israeli citizens.

Dr. James Wall Global News Centre

(CHICAGO)   Israel knows as long as it couches all its sins in claims of victimhood, Father America will give Israel whatever Israel deems to be its pleasure.

“Security measures” are a cruel joke on a captive population. “Security measures” are mere window dressing by a so-called democracy where justice prevails only for Jewish citizens.

India: Ensure integrity and security of Soni Sori

Soni Sori

Soni Sori

I express my concern over the threats against human rights defender Soni Sori, which it believes to be an attempt to prevent her from carrying out her peaceful and legitimate advocacy in defence of human rights.

William Nicholas Gomes, Global News Centre Human Rights Ambassador

(LONDON)  On 1 August 2015, following a press conference which Soni Sori held at the Jagdalpur press club to discuss the unlawful murder of Mr Hemla Podiya, she was threatened by Inspector General Mr Kalluri. Helma Podiya, who lived in Nahadi village in Dantewada, was shot in the back by a police officer on 28 July 2015. While the police maintain that it was an encounter killing, during the press conference Soni Sori publicly stated that the killing was arbitrary. On 30 July 2015 she had visited Nahadi village and talked to witnesses who stated that there was no confrontation between the police and Helma Podiya, and that the killing was therefore unlawful. On the night of 28 July 2015, joint security forces consisting of 500 officers reportedly raided homes and beat villagers in Nahadi village. Hearing the commotion, Helma Podiya left home and, shortly after, was shot dead by one of the officers.
