I have just had a heated facebook debate with an old friend, who has lived most of her life in Greece, but has relatives in Syria and has visited the
place. Obviously the debate was about the conflict in Syria. To put it extremely black and white - she claimed the rebels were the bad guys
exclusively and that this conflict should be handled internally, I claimed that Assad and the rebels were properly both bad, and that I thought the
international community should stop the conflict.
The debate ended with her claiming that human rights organizations support the genocide which is happening in Syria, and me saying that I did not find
that believable - to which she replied that "we can't agree on everything".
She is not the first person I've heard make such statements, but I have yet to be presented with any examples or evidence which would convince me of
such a thing. I know of a few instances where people have confused the research that is done around overpopulation with propaganda condoning genocide,
but otherwise I am pretty ignorant on the subject.
So if anyone has any good examples where human rights organizations have supported genocide, please let me know!
I am curious to know what the theories are on this, and if there is any reliable sources out there confirming such a statement?
