FOR DECADES, Amnesty International has been considered the most influential non-governmental organization (NGO) in the world. It claims 3 million members and has branches in 70 countries. Unfortunately, however, it has become the embodiment of the moral failure of the human-rights movement.

The organization has been weakened by financial scandals and promotes a radical agenda far removed from its founding universal principles. In particular, Amnesty is deeply involved with BDS and the campaign to demonize Israel.
