World’s Democracies Snub Annual Israel-Bashing Debate at UN Human Rights Council in Geneva – Ben Cohen
The world’s democracies collectively snubbed the UN Human Rights Council’s annual condemnation of Israel in Geneva on Monday, when none of their representatives attended the council’s debate on the “Human rights situation in Palestine.”
Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, said their absence signaled a “significant stand by the Western democracies against prejudice.” He observed that “the U.S., Canada, Australia, all European Union member states, Japan, and other established democracies have boycotted this debate” because it “singles out one specific state, the Jewish state, for differential and discriminatory treatment.”  (Algemeiner)
