Human Rights Watch’s (HRW) new report on Egypt’s “Rab’a Massacre” and the mass killing of protestors in July and August of 2013 has earned the organization a tsunami of criticism in the Egyptian media. Among the accusations lobbied at the group, critics cite funding from the Gulf, failure to report the presence of armed protestors, downplaying the sit-ins’ sectarianism, and a pro-Muslim Brotherhood bias.
