The UN Sinks Further into the Anti-Israeli Muck – Elliott Abrams (National Review)
For more than 20 years, the UN Human Rights Council has had a dedicated “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.”
The incumbent Israel-Hater-in-Chief was Richard Falk, who wanted U.S. officials prosecuted as war criminals for deposing Saddam Hussein. His replacement must now be chosen.

The top candidate is Penny Green, a British criminologist who has urged that the UK de-list Hamas as a terrorist group.
