    Heh, she's a lawyer who wants to get ahead and this kind of thing can help her do it.Afterall,she has a number of political parties behind her.Her statement concerning human rights organisations is a logical follow up to the Likud party slogan concerning Arabs. Israel has an egregious human rights record. That's simply factual from all sources, both Israeli and international. Israel and much of the Jewish establishment in the diaspora have and still are trying to discredit this record. They do this by claiming, falsely, that these same organisations do not target Arab terror against Israelis, or that there are other countries in the world with worse records and of coursae, the ubiquitous charge that they are out to slander Israel and the Jews. But the record is the record and they cannot deny it, only attempt to discredit the source.This Mashriki woman is only following form.Her premise is that Israel must be a sui generis case,judged on its own exceptionalist terms.Thats her justice.
