Israel to UN: Unfair Treatment Must Come to an End

My Comment:  With all the human rights violations rampant in the middle east, the UN and the world still wants to focus on demonizing Israel.  What’s wrong with this picture?

Israel defended itself against constant discrimination by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva today (Tuesday), demanding that Israel’s “unfair treatment” over the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria “must come to an end”.

Israeli ambassador to the UN Eviator Manor admitted to the council that Israel does not have “a perfect record”, stressing that the situation in Israel has been complicated due to “our difficult and complex security situation” with the Palestinian Arabs since its foundation in 1948. “Such challenges strain the delicate balance between the effective steps necessary to overcome the various threats to a state’s security and to the protection of human rights.”

Manor further emphasized that Israel is clear of all wrongdoing, stating that “Israel’s appearance here is testimony to our daily efforts to uphold the highest standards of human rights.” The statement comes after an 18-month boycott of the UNHRC after repeated discrimination by the council against Israel, and after reported threats by Guido Westerwelle of Germany that Israel’s absence from the council would incur severe diplomatic repercussions.
