UN Human Rights Council admits unfair treatment of Israel

Sunday, September 30, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

The United Nations Human Rights Council has unfairly focused nearly all of its time trying to find instances of Israeli human rights violations against the Palestinians, Israel Radio quoted council president Doru-Romulus Costea as telling a Spanish newspaper at the weekend.

“The body which I head must examine the actions of both sides equally, and we have not done that,” said Costea. “Clearly, from now on things need to change.”

Since its inception on March 15, 2006, the UN Human Rights Council has issued condemnations of alleged human rights abuses by only one nation - Israel. That despite the ongoing and horrendous human rights abuses in North Korea, Sudan, Myanmar, and elsewhere, not to mention the Palestinian Arabs' own abuse of Israeli human rights.

The UN Human Rights Council is the successor of the UN Commission on Human Rights, which was dissolved because of its singular focus on Israel and its preferential treatment of members states that fail to protect the rights of their own citizens.
