Bassam Eid's Journey

Bassam Eid, the founder of the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, has become an outspoken critic of the Palestinian Authority. In an article appearing in the South African Jewish Report (March 9-16, 2012) he bluntly states, “There are no Palestinian leaders capable of conducting peace talks."

The article describes Eid as "a former anti-Israel activist turned critic of the violation of Palestinian human rights by his own leaders." He is a sharp critic of "the Palestinian Solidarity Committee around the world, for fomenting a hatred between Palestinians and Jews that does not exist in Israel or in the territories."

The article on Eid serves as a reminder that both Jewish and Arab communities in Israel and the Palestinian Authority territories are victimized by self-serving international activists.

A second more detailed piece ran in an article published by the Voice of the Cape.
