Foreign Ministry calls UNHCR a ‘kangaroo court’

Now that the members of the UN Human Rights Council Gaza conflict inquiry have been named, it’s not much of a stretch to say that Israel is not going to cooperate with the investigation.

“When the decision about the creation of the committee was made on July 23, the prime minister and Foreign Ministry announced that the Human Rights Council had long ago become the Terrorists’ Rights Council, a kangaroo court in which the results of its ‘investigations’ are predetermined,” says the Foreign Ministry.

“If we need more evidence of this, the appointment of the chairman of the committee — whose opinions and positions on Israel are known to all — proves beyond any doubt that Israel cannot expect justice from this body, and that the committee’s report is already written. What has just been determined is who will sign it.”
