A few days ago we have been all blessed by the decision of UNHRC to open an inquiry on our war crimes in Gaza.
The UN Human Rights Council voted Wednesday to launch an inquiry into potential violations of human rights by Israel in its conflict with Hamas in the Gaza Strip — a move Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly labeled a “travesty.”Travesty or not, here is my own mini-inquiry into Ms Pillay. To start with, a quote that helps to understand how her fiefdom, UNHRC, treats Israel in general:
“There seems to be a strong possibility that international humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Pillay told the U.N. Human Rights Council. “Every one of these incidents must be properly and independently investigated.”
The UN Commission for Human Rights, whose members represented some of the most repressive regimes in the world, dedicated such disproportionate efforts to criticizing Israel at the expense of other causes that it was dismantled and replaced, with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan stating that "the politicization of its sessions and the selectivity of its work [...] cast a shadow on the reputation of the United Nations system as a whole”. Its replacement, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), turned out to be even more biased than its predecessor, and has dedicated overwhelming attention to Israel, while ignoring and blocking criticism of human rights abuses of equal or greater severity – often committed by the council’s own members. Massacres committed by Palestinians against their own population, and war crimes routinely perpetrated by Palestinians against Israelis, are similarly ignored.Ms Pillay, of course, strives to be a leader in her domain, recently repeating this bit of absurdity:
The UNHRC has been strongly criticized for its overwhelming bias against Israel, both by Annan and by current UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, as well as by independent NGO’s such as Freedom House, Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International. HRW, however, has come under the exact same criticism from its own founder (among others), while AI is also demonstrably guilty of the same double standard.
Women in the Occupied Palestinian Territory face multiple layers of violence and discrimination. The analysis made by the Special Rapporteur on violence against women in 2005 remains valid. She found that the combination of decades of Israeli occupation, the use of force against Palestinians by Israel, the different forms of resistance used by Palestinians against such use of force and the patriarchy prevailing in Palestinian society expose women to a continuum of violence in all spheres of life.However, this is not the peak yet, just a step on the way to the total madness, displayed by the lady recently. She is on the way out, apparently, and was seeking something that will ensure that her name remains forever in the annals of history. And I swear that it took quite some time for me to believe it is not a spoof:
UN condemns Israel for not sharing Iron Dome with Hamas
Iron Dome, partly financed by the United States, has been instrumental in blunting the Hamas terror missile bombardment on Israeli civilians. Pillay complained that no such protection has been provided for Hamas in Gaza.I am not up (and will never be) to commenting on this. The only thing I could do was checking the veracity of that quote, and here it is again, from Breitbart:
The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel's Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," she said.And here it is again, from Haaretz:
"They have not only provided the heavy weaponry which is now being used by Israel in Gaza but they've also provided almost $1 billion in providing the 'Iron Domes' to protect the Israels from rocket attacks," she said. "But no such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling."Nothing to add or to subtract from this. As I mentioned, Navi Pillay is leaving her post soon. I believe - nay, I am confident that the dictators' club called UN will find a replacement worthy to feel her shoes.
No matter the smell.
