17. Many think that Amnesty International is anti-semitic.
because it does the work of a human rights organization, which is criticize governments abuse of these rights. Because it also criticizes Israel, it is considered by some to be anti-semitic.

Of course, this is done by organizations that give awards to people who say the Waffen SS were victims just like Jews... that bit of anti-semitic shit was uttered by President Reagan. Yet Reagan was honored by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, for his "staunch support of Israel," and in 1994 with the "Torch of Liberty" award by the ADL.
