UN Human Rights Council votes 30-1 to condemn Israel for “grave violations”

An emergency session today of the UN’s 47-nation Human Rights Council condemned Israel for “grave violations of the human and humanitarian rights of Palestinian civilians,” for “undermining” the peace process, “incessant and repeated Israeli military attacks,” and causing “loss of life and injuries among Palestinian civilians, including women and children.” The resolution, which made no mention of Hamas rocket attacks or their Israeli victims, was adopted by 30 votes to 1 (Canada), with 15 abstentions from European Union and other countries. UN Watch thanks the many hundreds who urged world leaders not to support the biased and counter-productive text.

Interessant, at det er Syrien, Libya, Iran og Cuba, som har taget initiativet til denne session. Hykleriet kender ingen grænser.
