Israel a bigger human rights problem than Sudan? Really?

Gerald Steinberg, who publishes the NGO Monitor, has carefully reviewed the various activities and official activities by Amnesty International in the last year, and found that for Amnesty, Israel is a bigger human rights problem than Sudan. In fact Israel is near the top of the list of all the "bad" countries on Amnesty's list, barely getting nosed out by Iran as the top focus of the organization.  

Steinberg develops a model for comparing Amnesty's activities for each country.  The Amnesty obsession with Israel puts it in line with the United Nations, where 40% of all resolutions are aimed at Israel. When there is so much real evil in the world, and a human rights group focuses on Israel in this way one can conclude a lot about its motivation, fairness, and objectivity.
