UK: Amnesty official accuses Israeli government of murder

Via The Jewish Chronicle:
Amnesty UK has said it is looking into a complaint made by the Israeli embassy over anti-Israel tweets posted by one of its senior officials.

Eitan Na’eh, charge d’affaires at the embassy, complained after Amnesty campaigns manager Kristyan Benedict posted about the arson attack on a Palestinian home which resulted in the death of a baby.

One of the tweets read: “Palestinian baby burned to death in settler attack. They see their government getting away with murder every day.”

Mr Benedict later retweeted a post by Hamas relating to “Israel’s war crimes”.

A spokesperson at Amnesty UK said: "We've received a letter from the Israeli Embassy in London about this matter and are currently looking into it."  more
