EJP sharply criticized the report of the UN commission
EJP sharply criticized the report of the UN commission on the consequences of “Guardian of the Walls” military operation (that took place in May 2021). On June 13th UN Human Rights Council Commission of Inquiry on Israel provoked outraged reaction in the world. The organization’s special commission again accused the Jewish state of “occupying the territories” and concluded that this is the only cause of constant tension in the Middle East region. In response, 21 members of the Council (including US) expressed their outrage at the body’s “disproportionate treatment of Israel” and demanded to put the end to such practices.
The World Jewish Community has joined the discussion of the Council’s anti-Israel bias.
“The latest attack on Israel from the UN Human Rights Council, a UN body that contains a standing agenda item against only one country in the world, must be condemned by all and retracted in full. A commission that claims to be addressing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict but fails to mention Hamas in its founding resolution cannot be taken seriously,” was stated at the discussion.
European Jewish Parliament has joined in strong condemnation of the conclusions of the UN Commission and called on world powers to make efforts to change counterbalance of the obviously anti-Israeli position of the UN Human Rights Council.
