Shocka: NGO making up statistics

Yet another 'Palestinian' NGO has been caught making up statistics. Noah Pollak reports:
Yet another “human rights” NGO has been caught trafficking in made-up statistics. As Yaacov Lozowick and Elder of Ziyon report, Addameer, a Palestinian “prisoners’ rights” NGO, has been inflating the number of Palestinians it claims have been arrested by Israel to a point of total absurdity:
For Addameer’s numbers to be accurate, Israel would be arresting some 10,000 people a month. Yet the PCHR [Palestinian Centre for Human Rights -- no PR operation for Israel by any stretch of the imagination] says that the number of arrests was 23 last week, 26 the previous week, 23 the week before and 17 the week before that – for a total of less than 100 people a month.
And B’Tselem says that “about 6,831 Palestinians were held in Israel as of the end of December ‘09.” How could only 6,800 Palestinians be held in Israel if the IDF is arresting 10,000 Palestinians per month?
Addameer not only made up the initial numbers but they keep grossly inflating them, confident that their anti-Israel audience will lap them up without question.
Precisely right.
Read the whole thing.

In this world full of bias, hate and willful antisemitism toward Jews and Israel, they need no statistics. Like it or not this is the reality we face.

Of course they do. Jews are presumed guilty until proven innocent. And no doubt that suits Adameer and other anti-Israel NGOs just fine.

What could go wrong indeed
