Amnesty urges all parties to put Human Rights in the center of election campaign
Amnesty International issued a statement yesterday, so far the issue of human Rights has been a prominent issue in politics 2005, in the massarrests of the Muslim Brotherhood, the protests against torture by Kefaya, the beatings and ... by NDP thugs on the 25 of May, and in July, Issam al Arian has just come out of prison after more than five months. And we witnessed the Iftar , at the ministry of justice last week , by the families of the forgotten prisoners, the 10 000 militant islamists sitting there , some of them without trial. So indeed the human rights issue has been prominent so far in politics this year, and it´s likely to stay that way, regardless of the NDP candidates mentioning it or not. Just as likely as the fact that the emergency law has been in place almost continuously in different shapes from al Naqsa 1967, and is likely to stay that way, past the February house session in some shape or form.
