This is the story that just keeps giving. Reuters was reporting this morning that some of the Arab delegates started circulating a resolution that would require the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, to bring the U.N. sanctioned Goldstone Report “alleging war crimes in the Gaza Strip before the Security Council”. See below for the full “UN assembly draft urges action on Gaza “war crimes” article. Really little to no doubt what would happen if it ever got in front of the U.N. Security Council but the General Assembly seems to be behind it.
Remember, this report was the result of a U.N. fact-finding mission. To be perfectly clear, the Goldstone Report accuses both Israel and the Palestinian Hamas of “war crimes” . The Arab leaders and Arab U.N. delegates all want the report brought to the UN Security Council. However, according to the Reuters report, not to mention our own cynical yet accurate experience and common sense, “Western diplomats say current Arab draft is unacceptable”.
Did you catch that? A report in front of the U.N. General Assembly, accusing both Israel and Hamas of “war crimes” , that was the result of a U.N. fact-finding mission, is being used as the rationale for a draft resolution for the U.N. General Assembly to review/debate/reach a Resolution on. I should add, unlike those from the U.N. Security Council, any Resolution from the U.N. General Assembly is nonbinding. Ultimately all it will really do is draw attention to allegations of war crimes by both Israel and Hamas. This is something that the Arab leaders support and are pushing for. In fact, according to Reuters article, “Arab and Western diplomats told Reuters there was little doubt a majority of the General Assembly would vote in favor of the Arab draft”.. But, at the same time it is reported that “Western diplomats said the United States would most likely vote against the resolution.
To help clarify the position of the United States in this matter, “Israel has criticized the report as unbalanced and says the 47-nation Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, which commissioned the report, is biased against the Jewish state.”. We know that Hillary Clinton just went to Israel to get the current U.S. Foreign Policy marching orders straight from the horse’s mouth, let’s call the horse Mr. Abe.
So the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, is comprised of “47 States responsible for strengthening the promotion and protection of human rights around the globe”, is comprised of states from around the world: African States (13), Asian States (13), Eastern European States (6), Latin American & Caribbean States (8), Western European & Other States (7). The majority of which are “biased against the Jewish state.”?????.
Have you ever noticed that is a common theme behind the entire history of the Jewish people? The premier victim race of people on the planet! A people that shall dwell alone.. The poor defenseless Jews, a race of people that arguably wields the most influence and power of any race the planet (look at media control and political influence! They have the great democracies of the world standing at attention!). The biblical Chosen People.
You really have to read this report to understand the shear Hutspah involved. The fact that the majority of both the U.N. General Assembly AND the Human Rights Council, support a non-binding resolution. The great democracies of the world, the United States, Britain, France and Israel, oppose it. Biggest concern? Essentially the whole world is “biased against the Jewish state.”. Sound familiar?--source--"
