UN Human Rights Council’s pathological campaign against Israel


The Jerusalem Post published an op-ed by UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer warning of the UN Human Rights Council’s upcoming resolutions singling out Israel and the appointment of two biased officials.

“The council is expected to elect Jean Ziegler, a radical Geneva politician, to its 18-member advisory committee. As the UN expert on the right to food for the past seven years, Ziegler ignored many of the world’s most starving populations, instead launching polemics against the West, the US and Israel.

In 2005, Ziegler compared Israeli soldiers to concentration camp guards. During a 2006 interview, he said, ‘I refuse to describe Hizbullah as a terrorist organization. It is a national resistance movement. I can understand Hizbullah when they kidnap soldiers.’

As documented by a new UN Watch documentary available on YouTube, Ziegler also has an odd affinity for dictators. In 1989, shortly after Libyan agents blew up Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, he went to Libya to co-found the ‘Moammar Khaddafi Human Rights Prize,’ and served as its spokesman.”
