Human Rights Watch "Expert" Collects Nazi Regalia

I'm not making this up, either. From NGO Monitor:
“That is so cool! The leather SS jacket makes my blood go cold it is so COOL!” --Flak88 (aka Marc Garlasco),, 2005

“To imply that Garlasco’s collection is evidence of Nazi sympathies is not only absurd but an attempt to deflect attention” --HRW statement, September 8, 2009

On September 8, Omri Ceren (MereRhetoric) published a fully documented report clearly showing that Human Rights Watch’s “senior military expert” and coauthor of numerous reports condemning Israel, Marc Garlasco, is an avid collector of Nazi memorabilia. This revelation follows NGO Monitor’sresearch report on HRW’s pattern of false and unsupported claims in relation to Israel, and lack of professionalism and anti-Israel activism among some HRW officials, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa division.
