News and views from an Israeli girl
Israel has reacted angrily to a decision by the United Nations Human Rights Council to launch an international investigation into Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Jerusalem threatened to end cooperation with the Geneva-based UN body.(WORLD JEWISH CONGRESS)
"This is hypocritical council with an automatic majority against Israel. This council ought to be ashamed of itself. Until today, the council has made 91 decisions, 39 of which dealt with Israel, three with Syria and one with Iran. One only had to hear the Syrian representative speak today about human rights in order to understand how detached from reality the council is. Another proof of its detachment from reality came last week when it invited before it a representative of Hamas, an organization whose ideology is based on the murder of innocents.” (IMRA)
