U.N. Watch was founded in 1993 by civil rights leader Morris Abram.
In honor of this occasion, they tweet stormed a Top 25 thread (click the following tweet to see the full list).

Their top video / tweet ?
When the UN_HRC held its Hate Israel Day, UN Watch brought the Son of Hamas to deliver an epic speech exposing Palestinian crimes.
He stunned the assembly into silence, and literally caused heads to turn.
The video has been watched 10 million times on social media!
Thank you, Mr. President.
I take the floor on behalf of UN Watch.
My name is Mosab Hassan Yousef. I grew up in Ramallah as a member of Hamas.
I address my words to the Palestinian Authority, which claims to be the “sole legitimate representative” of the Palestinian people.
I ask: where does your legitimacy come from?
The Palestinian people did not elect you, and they did not appoint you to represent them.
You are self-appointed.
Your accountability is not to your own people. This is evidenced by your total violation of their human rights.
In fact, the Palestinian individual and their human development is the least of your concerns.
You kidnap Palestinian students from campus and torture them in your jails. You torture your political rivals. The suffering of the Palestinian people is the outcome of your selfish political interests. You are the greatest enemy of the Palestinian people.
If Israel did not exist, you would have no one to blame. Take responsibility for the outcome of your own actions.
You fan the flames of conflict to maintain your abusive power.
Finally, you use this platform to mislead the international community, and to mislead Palestinian society, to believe that Israel is responsible for the problems you create.
