The GMBDW has been following a recent trend characterized by the formation of NGO’s claiming to be independent human rights organizations when they are, in fact, closely tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas and their associated networks. In the latest example, an organization known as the Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights has issued an incendiary report in the midst of the ongoing violence in Israel and Gaza claiming that Israeli security forces have stolen cash and property worth $3 million from Palestinians in the West Bank. A Euro-Mid posting on the report begins:
July 8, 2014 Ramallah- During the course of Israel’s three-week campaign of mass arrests in the West Bank, ostensibly to search for the killers of three settlers, the Israeli military and police conducted an average of 18 raids per day into Palestinian homes, charities and businesses, stealing cash and property worth an estimated $3 million, documents a new report from the Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights.
The posting describes the organization as follows:
The Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights is a nonprofit, nongovernmental human rights organization dedicated to exposing human rights violations and defending human rights. The Euro-Mid Observer for Human Rights headquarter is based in Geneva, Switzerland, with regional offices in the Middle-East.
The Euro-Mid Observer is headed by Dr. Ramy Abdu who formerly was the Regional Director of the Council of European Palestinian Relations (CEPR), the pro-Hamas lobbying group for the European Union. Prior to that, Dr. Abdu was known to have been a spokesperson for the European Campaign To End The Siege On Gaza (ECESG), a central player in the two Hamas-backed Gaza flotillas of 2010 and 2011. In November 2012, Euro-Mid was one of the organizers of a Geneva demonstration against the prosecution of Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the UAE which called the international community “the slave of the Emirati financial lobby.” Other organizers included the Swiss Muslim League, the Swiss member organization of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), in turn representing the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe, and the now-defunct Emirates Center for Human Rights, itself tied to both the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK and to Hamas.
