The murder of Carlos Chavez - will any Church ‘human rights’ groups speak out?
B’tselem (an Israeli human rights NGO) condemned the murder of Carlos Andrés Muscara Chávez, a 21 year old Kibbutz volunteer and visitor to Israel from Ecuador. He was killed by a Palestinian sniper as he worked in a potato field. Condemnation for this senseless and deliberate murder should be heard from many human rights organisations. Why is B’tselem practically alone in bringing attention to this tragedy which they describe as a “grave breach international humanitarian law and a war crime”?
Today's victim was a righteous victim. He was murdered while planting potato seeds on a communal farm insider Israel. Carlos Chavez was not a reactionary imperialist warmonger illegal settler messianic fanatic - just a man growing food in a communal farm. For whatever reasons, he was planting potato seeds, not seeds of hatred.
There is silence among Church human rights groups, so quick to speak up in defence of terrorists and protest Israel’s attempts to protect itself. It is possible that this young man, from Ecuador, is a Catholic or perhaps an Evangelical Christian – but Churches would rather speak up for his murderers and those who support them. These are the mostly Muslim Palestinians, who also oppress their Christian neighbours, about which Church 'human rights' organisations are also silent.
