Israel boycotts UN Human Rights Council in unprecedented move

Not content with "coercing" African Jews to take contraceptives, Israel is now throwing it's weight around and refusing to cooperate with the UN Human Rights Council.

Israel has boycotted a regular review by the UN Human Rights Council, the first time any country has done so.

The move was expected as Israel has long been angered by what it claims is unfair criticism from the body.

A decision last year to investigate Jewish settlements in the West Bank prompted Israel to announce it would no longer co-operate with the council.
Council spokesman Rolando Gomez told the Associated Press that Israel's unprecedented absence had put the council in "new territory" because attendance of the Universal Periodic Review was mandatory.....

Even Israel's biggest ally, the United States, had urged Israel to take part. The big question now is what - if anything - the UN can do about Israel's refusal to participate, our correspondent adds.

When you have both sides answering claims and accusations with whataboutery you cannot have a meaningful discussion.

You are either against illegality, murdering of innocents, including children (irrespective of the method), theft and cruelty or you are not.

When it comes to the law, you either respect it or you don't and claims of Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, Fascism and Nazism are completely pointless.

This a ridiculous decision by Israel. The Human Rights Council is a crock and the end result will always be criticism of Israel but even North Korea, Iran and Saudi Arabia turn up and you don't , then you look bad.

I wanted to put a link up to Tommy Tiernan's take on foreign relations, you know the one where Israel just says f@ck off, f*ck off to everyone. Thing is it's been removed from youtube. If you haven't seen it it's Tommy pretending to be Israel saying f$ck off, f*ck off to anyone who even questions their foreign policy. Prescient stuff Tommy.

Now why would Israel cooperate with this UN body? Maybe Israel objects to the assortment of actual human rights abusers who sit in judgement of them? Like Egypt ("Jews are descended from pigs and apes" or Jews are "bloodsuckers" as the Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was seen recently on TV saying. Just look at what countries makes up The UN Human Rights Council that consists partly of the worst abusers of the very human right which they supposed to defend. Dictators and tyrannies run the human rights commission and are sitting in judgement of others. The UN Human Rights Council has a permanent agenda of 10 items, one reserved for condemning Israel and one for considering all other 192 UN members. Almost 40 percent of all Council resolutions condemning specific countries have been directed at Israel alone. There have been more special sessions on Israel than any other country. Israel is the only UN state excluded from full membership in any of the UN’s regional groups, where key negotiations and information-sharing occurs. So why should Israel cooperate with this corrupt body? Why would Israel take part in what is going to be nothing more than anti-Israel bashing?

You are right as usual. But sympathy was beginning to mount up for Israel even Kofi Annan had remarked that there was too much emphasis on Israel. Refusing to turn up gives the muppets on the council ammunition. Turn up, say your piece and take the brickbats and it would be forgotten about a week later.

The Israelis should co-operate, and send a general as their representative, to stare down the 147, or whatever it is, Muslim countries chuntering on about human rights.
