“When the UN use modern blood-libel, it is just another nail in the coffin of the council’s credibility”.
These are the words of Deputy Foreign Minister of Israel, Danny Ayalon. He strongly condemn the recently released UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on the Gaza ‘aid flotilla”.
The report ostensibly investigating the events that surrounded the interception of the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara in May.
“The UNHRC has two sole functions: To defend serial human-rights abusing nations from reproach, and to revile and attack Israel”, explains Ayalon.
Only 20 of the 47 nations on the UNHRC are considered “free” by Freedom House, an independent NGO which monitors human rights and political freedoms.This means the majority do not allow basic freedoms for their own people, let alone concern themselves with global human rights.
The UNHRC has condemned Israel 33 times out of its 40 country-specific condemnations, while the UNHRC expresses only “deep concern” over Sudan and praises its cooperation.
In addition, the UNHRC adopted a unique decision to discuss human rights violations committed by Israel in all of the council’s meetings.
