UN report on human rights in West Bank and Gaza serves only terror supporters
Opinion: UN Commission of Inquiry into Human Rights Violations report accuses Israel of violating international law, while ignoring terror and missile attacks aimed against Israeli civilians

You can safely assume that the Palestinian terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Saturday, did not read a report by the UN Commission of Inquiry into Human Rights Violations in the West Bank and Gaza, submitted to the General Assembly last week.
This report, however, is part of an international propaganda meant to do nothing more than demonize Israel, serving no one but terror organizations like Hamas and the Islamic Jihad. If Israel is committing “war crimes” and “crimes against humanity,” as the report says, by defending its people, then by default terror acts aimed against Israelis are justified.
Three “human right activists” and their anti-Israeli lackeys presented the report to the UN Secretary-General António Guterres after a year of “hard work” the committee had done, investigating the alleged crimes.
No Western power supported the committee’s establishment, but the majority vote in the General Assembly allowed for it to be formed.
Unlike other committees in the UN, this one is permanent, meaning it will publish reports annually until it is decommissioned. This provides a great platform and income to the three stooges heading it and to Hamas’ propaganda machine, now being funded by an international organization. We thought the UN was established to fight racism, but it turns out it is now funding it.
The committee’s head, Navi Pillay from South Africa, in the past was a signatory of a petition calling for “sanctions against the apartheid state of Israel.”
The second committee member, Miloon Kothari from India, once said during an interview that “the social media is controlled largely by the Jewish lobby or specific NGOs.” Kothari also objects to Israel being a member of the UN.
The third member of the committee, Australia’s Christopher Sidoti, is affiliated with an organization supporting the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement.
These three, according to the definition of antisemitism, are antisemites. Hillel Neuer, head of the UN Watch, sent a detailed 30-page report on Pillay’s consistent and extreme anti-Israel stance, but to no avail.
How can Pillay, Kothari and Sidoti be appointed to a committee scrutinizing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Well, everything is possible when it comes to Israel.
