The Shame of the Left, part XXVIX by Nick Cohen

Apparently, except for bloggers, only Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International [1] have been protesting 'here' [2] against the jailing of Egyptican blogger Abdel Karim Suleiman, which apparently backs up Nick Cohen's book which argues that the liberal-left (with a special focus on Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International) have turned their backs on the poor world in gruesome alliance with Islamists [3].

[1] Reporters without Borders certainly have to, but I suspect their Frenchness ruled them out.
[2] 'Here' I think means the UK, which is a little odd as I thought Human Rights Watch was based in the United States.
[3] Aside from this ridiculous argument, I agree with most of the post.
