His "recognition" comes primarily from liberal advocacy groups. What do his critics say? --Uncle Ed 14:10, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Ed, your comment is silly. Not to say that the article shouldn't include a critical perspective, but it is silly to object that Mr. Bernstein's recognition comes from "liberal advocacy groups." Of course it's going be fans of liberal democracy that recognize the contributions of Bernstein and HRC. The authoritarian regimes that HRC seeks to pry open are obviously not going to be the ones honoring him.--Brijohn6882 (talk) 17:38, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

MORE IMPORTANTLY, on 10/20/09 I added a paragraph about the OpEd that Bernstein wrote for the NYTimes criticizing HRC's treatment of the Arab-Isreali conflict. I think it is worth including as a representation of his current opinion of the organization he founded and his perspective on a major human rights issue. But I admit that paragraph is imperfect, and I'm sure that some will disagree about the value of including it at all.--Brijohn6882 (talk) 17:38, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
