Doubling down on their lies and smears, and even making a buck off them. Amnesty International is beneath contempt.

“Amnesty UK to release ‘end Israeli apartheid’ merch line,” Jerusalem Post, July 11, 2022:

Amnesty International UK announced a new line of merchandise on Monday titled “End Israeli Apartheid.” 

The announcement was made by Kristyan Benedict, Amnesty International UK campaign manager for Israel/Palestine and Syria, over Twitter.

“New Amnesty UK T-shirts, briefings, and other merch to support the #EndIsraeliApartheid global campaign – more coming soon,” Benedict tweeted.

“Our campaign to help end Israel’s cruel system of apartheid against Palestinians has seen an excellent response from people who are opposed to racism and discrimination,” Kristyan Benedict, Amnesty International UK’s Crisis Response Manager, told The Jerusalem Post

“We expect the t-shirts and other End Israeli Apartheid campaign products to be popular. The first set of t-shirts will be available in the coming days, with more in development in partnership with Palestinian artists.”…

The US said attempts to label Israel as an apartheid state were absurd.

The NGO has also long faced accusations of engaging in antisemitism, though it fervently denies these allegations.
