UN Human Rights Council to convene on Israel
AP ^ | 8/10/6

Posted on 08/10/2006 8:00:26 PM PDT by SmithL

The new UN Human Rights Council on Friday will hold its second emergency session this summer on Israel, urged by Islamic countries to condemn the Jewish state for "massive bombardment of Lebanese civilian populations" and other "gross and systematic human rights violations."

The 57-country Organization of the Islamic Conference, which gathered enough signatures to require the meeting, have put together a harshly worded draft resolution that blames Israel without any mention of Hizbullah, whose capture of two Israeli soldiers a month ago triggered the attack on Lebanon.

The council, which in a similar session July 6 voted 29-11 to deplore Israel's military operations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, is to "consider and take action on the gross human rights violations by Israel in Lebanon," according to the request filed by Tunisia on behalf of the OIC.

The statement said the council should also consider the July 30 Israeli airstrike on the Lebanese town of Kana, which killed 28 people, as well as "countrywide targeting of innocent civilians and destruction of vital civilian infrastructure."

Here we go, war crimes against Israel compliments of the UN. Israel would be better off if they would just ignore the UN and take care of what they need to.

Oh, and I thought they were going to discuss the abuse that's been heaped on Israel ever since the UN first abandoned them in 1948.

Silly me.

Oh good.

I have been waiting for this.

I know this is the perfect group to solve this problem. </sarc>

Speaking of this, I loved that point in Bolton's recent congressional testimony where he noted that this new and improved human rights body had issued only one reprimand of human rights abuses in the world (pause) against Israel. Bolton punctuated with one of his enigmatic glints and smiles and moved on.

It was almost as sweet as a bomb falling on a Hezbollah position.

"The 57-country Organization of the Islamic Conference..."

Yet another good reason to get out of the UN and get the UN out... before it becomes the IUN.

Israel, I can give you the coordinates of the council. Just give ten minutes warning - only the United States and other good allies will get out of the way - everyone else will be standing there talking to the cameras about how this is evidence that they should do more about Israel - right until they're bombed off the air.

"...according to the request filed by Tunisia on behalf of the OIC."

Hmmm, Tunisia? That sounds familiar. Weren't they the ones who hosted that little lying murderous thug Arafat that one time the Israelis chased him off?

I'm sure there will be balance, impartiality, and objectivity in their deliberations....

Ppphhht...

Lebanon has been shelling Israeli cities for over a month and the UN wants to attack Israel for trying to stop it?!

No shame, and no pride in the UN.

The U.N. is beyond shame. Jewish blood shed and Jewish victims of terror have no meaning to these scum. What colossal hypocrits and thugs.
