Promotional style[edit]

This article is currently written from the point of view of the organisation, in a manner that promotes it (e.g. 'We CONNECT activists, EMPOWER dissidents and AMPLIFY new voices for freedom.'). It should be rewritten to meet Wikipedia's guidelines on neutral point of view. Robofish (talk) 22:30, 10 February 2013 (UTC)

Agreed. AHR was founded by Bernstein in response to the fact that his organization Human Rights Watch was reporting on cases of Israel violating human rights, and Bernstein didn't like the extent of coverage (which may indeed have been lopsided, I really couldn't say). By founding an organization (AHR) to examine only non-democratic countries in the Middle East, this org is identical to HRW that Israel cannot by criticized or discussed apart from when its citizens are the victims of violence directed by outside groups. Whatever your opinion of Israel may be, this is a controversial organization, to put it mildly. TricksterWolf (talk) 19:01, 18 February 2013 (UTC)
