Also many other Zionist materials both current and historical. For the view from the other side see the link to al-Nakba.

According to the people who run this site: "This site is created by ex-Muslims to help Muslims leave Islam". They say: "Islam is a lie and this site is the proof". They think they are fighting Islam, but those who understand Islam will have no difficulty to see that what they are fighting is not Islam, but their own misconceptions about it. Just another example of militant secularism. They want to "stop Islam", but to those who are familiar with the Qur'an it will bring to the mind verse 9:32. And sincere people of understanding not familiar with Islam, having visited that site, might even decide that Islam is probably a good thing and will want to know more about it.

International Criminal Court
This site is the primary non-government organization provider of online information about the future International Criminal Court. The International Criminal Court (ICC) will be a permanent court for trying individuals accused of committing genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
The ICC will be formally established after 60 countries have ratified the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court.
The USA has refused to recognize that court.
The establishment of that court began in 1945, and up to now it is not yet functional.
It is not yet clear how this court will guarantee total and unconditional impartiality and objectivity.
It is doubtful that the court will be able to consider cases against individuals members of governments of the 'super-powers' like the USA, Russia, etc. And, if the effective jurisdiction of the court will be confined only to those countries, which are small and are out of favor with the super-powers, then will such court be an instrument of justice?
International Court of Justice
The jurisdiction of that court is limited to resolution of disputes between states, members of the United Nations and Switzerland. The court has no jurisdiction to hear cases brought by individuals and non-governmental groups against established governments.

A site dedicated to the anti-Palestinian bias in the American and world media.
This is a comment on this site by Prof. Noam Chomsky, MIT, Linguistics:
"Monitoring of media, and attempts to correct for error or imbalance, are difficult and demanding tasks, essential ones for a democratic society. That is particularly true for sensitive issues about which there are, rightly, strong and often conflicting judgments. I have been impressed with the care and sophistication of the work of PMWatch, and its constructive achievements. Extension of its valuable work would be a substantial contribution to public understanding and policy formation in areas of immense significance."

These people are campaigning for human rights. They have set up a page on the genocide in Chechnya.
According to them: "During the last seven years, almost 150,000 inhabitants of the Chechen Republic - 15% of the population - have lost their lives; 250,000 are refugees and are living, for the main part, in inhuman conditions; tens of thousands of civilians and members of the resistance have experienced, and continue to experience, the reality of the gulags of "democratic" Russia: concentration camps, torture, rape, extortion and summary executions. Every day the list of the dead, wounded, and maimed gets longer."
So far the United Nations Organization has not set up any tribunal, similar to the International Criminal Court for the Former Yugoslavia to bring to justice those responsible for the atrocities perpetrated against the Chechens.
The British government agreed with the Russian government not to inconvenience them over Chechnya in exchange for the Russian support in the war against Afghanistan.
