Jerusalem (CNN)Israel has decided to suspend all working ties with the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, and will not cooperate with the council's plans for an investigation of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territories, Israel's foreign ministry spokesman told CNN Monday.
"Working relations, participating in debates and discussion and exchanging papers, sending information and requesting information, and organizing visits and so on and so on, this is all suspended," Yigal Palmor said about the decision by senior management of the Foreign Ministry.
The move came in response to a resolution by the Human Rights Council to establish a "Fact Finding Mission on the Influence of Settlements on Palestinians," the Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a posting on its website. It described the move as "yet another surrealistic decision from the workshop of a council that is instrumentalized as a tool to push for one-sided politicized moves instead of promoting human rights."
It accused the council of seeking "to satisfy the Palestinians' whims and to harm future chances to reach an agreement through peaceful means."
The statement said that turning to international bodies "is a breach of concluded Israeli-Palestinian agreements." It said Palestinians should resume "direct and unconditional negotiations on all core issues within the framework of a comprehensive agreement" if they want to solve the settlements issue."Their deliberate choice to foster confrontation and provocation rather than compromise and reconciliation is nothing but a destructive strategy that the international community should firmly reject."

Kickin the UN leftist out. Thumbs up.
Too bad our government doesn’t have the same backbone as Israel.
The United Nations is nothing more than an anti-Israel and antichrist organization and has been for decades.
How Resolution 181 ever got passed can only be a miracle.
It certainly would not happen today.
U.N. Human Rights Council declares jihad in retaliation.
Kudos to Israel for flipping the UN goons off. Wish the US and EU would follow suit. (Fat chance for that happening, alas.)
Oh that the US were half as smart as Israel.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
The last mentioned loves the UN.
...and the first mentioned so much it provides free room and board!
You have to wonder why anyone would actually believe they could do anything but foster confrontation and provocation.They're driven by it and the god of this world is encouraging them.
