I was in Amnesty in high school. Wrote a bunch of letters; the only one I ever had a reply to was one in Israel. It said something to the effect of 'we're not doing anything terrible to so-and-so, but even if we were so-and-so is a pretty bad guy, and we're a country, so, yeah' -- in short, between the lines, 'we're torturing the hell out of him, like we'd listen to you.' One of the scarier things that has happened to me.

Thank you for writing this. The tone of the letter you received does not surprise me in the least; we get this sort of response both from the government and the IDF every day. But I am glad that you added a testimony suggesting how useless it would be to fax our detestable Minister.
