UN Human Rights Council silences pro-Israel speaker

Tuesday, September 23, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff

The UN Human Rights Council met late last week for the umpteenth time to remonstrate against what its members insist is the systematic abuse of the Palestinian Arabs by Israel.

A number of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) were given a chance to address the council, and watchdog group Eye On The UN was on hand to make sure they all got their say.

They did not all get their say.

In a short video released on the Internet, Eye On The UN shows a representative of B'nai Brit International being abruptly cut off by the council's president when the former dared to demand that the UN also take issue with Palestinian human rights violations against Israelis.

The council president then turned the floor over to his deputy, the Egyptian representative, who berated the B'nai Brit representative for failing to take the council session seriously and for attempting to distort "what is happening in Palestine."
