Prime Minister Netanyahu denounces the UN Human Rights Council’s “shameful” decision to establish a permanent commission of inquiry into alleged abuses in Israel and Palestinian areas.
The premier says the adoption of the resolution is another case of the council’s “blatant anti-Israel obsession.”
“Once again, an immoral automatic majority at the Council whitewashes a genocidal terrorist organization that deliberately targets Israeli civilians while turning Gaza’s civilians into human shields,” he writes on Twitter, referring to Hamas. “This while depicting as the ‘guilty party’ a democracy acting legitimately to protect its citizens from thousands of indiscriminate rocket attacks. This travesty makes a mockery of international law and encourages terrorists worldwide.”
Today's shameful decision is yet another example of the UN Human Rights Council's blatant anti-Israel obsession.
