Skip to comments.US Urges Israel to Partake in UN Human Rights Review
Posted on 01/24/2013 4:51:37 PM PST by Nachum
The Unites States has declared that Israel should take part in a United Nations review of its human rights situation despite the Jewish states decision to cut ties with the council that carries out the process.
"We have encouraged the Israelis to come to the council and to tell their story and to present their own narrative of their own human rights situation," said Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, the U.S. representative to the United Nations' Human Rights Council in Geneva, AFP reported.
Israel cut all ties with the biased 47-member state council last March after it announced that it would probe how Israeli communities beyond the green line may be infringing on the rights of the Arab population.
While Israel is not a member of the council, like all 193 UN member countries, it is required to undergo Universal Periodic Reviews (UPR) of its human rights situation.
Israel is scheduled for a UPR next Tuesday, but has given no indication it will take part in the process, as the council has been historically and consistently biased, blatantly one-sided and against the interests of the Jewish state.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
the council, like all 193 UN member countries, it is required to undergo Universal Periodic Reviews (UPR) of its human rights situation.
Why do I get the feeling that despite the Observer Nation
statis given the palestinians, they haven’t nor will they
in the future, be given this Review.
So the U.S., meaning of course Obummer thinks Israel should participate in a predetermined witch hunt against them. Yeah I can see Israel jumping right at that. Obummer probably wants them to go on a apology tour like he did for America.
Israel should just go for it and ignore the predictable outcome. Just say’n
Over half of UN states are members of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation. For Israel to participate in the Human Rights Review would be simply invite attacks from the majority. Negotiating with them is like negotiating with Iran, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and the SEIC. Why bother when those across the table are committed to your destruction?
More ridiculous crap from the Obummer Administration, Part Deux. Israel has never gotten fair treatment at the UN and never will.
In the court of the Red Queen, Israel is always guilty.
The outcome of any review by these countries of Israel is preordained, and it would have nothing to do with reality. Fortunately, Israel's leaders know how much is riding on this decision, and they will not trust an antisemitic liar like Obama.
Israel should instead widely release its own human rights report, contrasting what Israel does with nations in the rest of the world, especially those on this council, and non-nations like the two Paleo territories.
It could even rate countries by how abusive they are and how many human rights they regularly violate.
They could actually throw in some amusing digs, like classifying Islam itself as a violation of human rights, and list all the human rights annually violated in the name of Islam, and backed by text in the Koran.
If they really wanted to rub it in, they could include an annex to the report, of the Koran in Hebrew. With the finest pigskin dust jacket.
May no arrow formed against Israel prosper. May the Lord bless and give Bibi great wisdom and understanding during this time of trouble and may the US stand with Israel.
No one not even American citizens should bow to the absolutely corrupt WH and neostatist-American government.
No one should force Israel to do anything without suffering the wrath of El Shaddai! Genesis chapter 12( especially vs 3).
But alas Obo and crew have chosen to try to run with UN "rules and regs" corrupt as they are.
Nope Israel should steer clear since the UN has near daily meetings regarding Israel the apartheid state, fictional palestinian state, the horrors of Israeli human rights atrocities and worse, apes and peegs doncha know( sickening crapola)
