UN to investigate Israel for war crimes: of course
High Commissioner for Human Rights? More like Chief Israel Basher
Against Israel Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, wants to investigate Israel for war crimes.
And the media is all over it, eating it up like chocolate pudding. Here, and here. CNN had to correct itself because they couldn’t wait to report than an American official accused Israel of human rights and Geneva Convention violations. But it was only the UN.
What else is new? What else should we expect? The UN Human Rights Council, a paradox in and of itself, has condemned Israel more times than any other nation. By far. An (astonishing?) 45% of their total country-specific resolutions were against tiny Israel*.
*as of 2013, it’s probably higher now.
