In 9 Years' Existence, #UNHRC Condemned #Israel More Times Than Rest of World Combined - @UNWatch

This is just utterly ridiculous!


Report: In 9 Years' Existence, UNHRC Condemned Israel More Times Than Rest of World Combined
Ahead of Debate on Gaza Report, UN Watch Releases Evidence of Systematic Bias at UN's Top Rights Body
GENEVA, June 25, 2015 - In
the nine years of its existence, the UN Human Rights Council has
condemned Israel more times than the rest of the world combined,
revealed UN Watch today, ahead of a new report to be released by the
Geneva-based NGO that documents endemic selectivity and politicization
at the world body.
The
outcome resolution for the latest Gaza report, to be introduced at the
UNHRC this week by the Palestinians together with the Arab and Islamic
states, will condemn Israel exclusively, and will mark the 62nd
resolution targeting Israel since the new and improved Council was
created in 2006 -- while the total of all other UNHRC condemnatory
resolutions for the rest of the world amounts to 55, with most of the
worst violators given a free pass, if not a seat on the council itself.
Sadly,
with members like China, Russia, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan,
Venezuela and Qatar, the UNHRC today may possibly rank as a more corrupt
international organization than FIFA.
UN Watch released the following statistics today, and urged Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to again rebuke the Human Rights Council for treating one particular group of human beings, Israelis, out of all proportion:
I. Total UNHRC Condemnations, 2006-2015
Israel: 61
Syria: 15
Myanmar: 12
North Korea: 8
Iran: 5
Belarus: 4
Eritrea: 3
Sri Lanka: 3
Sudan: 2
Libya: 2
Honduras: 1
Afghanistan: 0
Algeria: 0
China: 0
Cuba: 0
Equatorial Guinea: 0
France: 0
Iraq: 0
Lebanon: 0
Russia: 0
Pakistan: 0
Somalia 0
Turkmenistan: 0
UK: 0
USA: 0
Uzbekistan: 0
Venezeula: 0
Vietnam: 0
Yemen: 0
Zimbabwe: 0


















Total on Israel: 61
Rest of World Combined: 55
Methodology:
includes all resolutions from 2006 to 2015 that singled out specific
countries for condemnation under agenda items 4 and 7. Excludes
resolutions that also praise the country concerned, or those adopted as
matters of "technical cooperation."
__________________________________________________
II. Country-Specific Agenda Items: Only Against Israel
There is a special agenda item targeting Israel
at every regular session of the UNHRC. No other country in the world
has its own agenda item -- not Sudan, not Syria, not North Korea. It is
under this agenda item No. 7 on Monday, which Western democracies in the
last year have mostly boycotted due to its selectivity, that the
Schabas-Davis report on Gaza will be formally debated.
__________________________________________________




III. Special Rapporteurs
 
The
permanent Special Rapporteur on Israel’s alleged violations is the only
one at the UNHRC whose mandate examines only one side (Israel’s
actions, but not Hamas, Islamic Jihad, or Fatah); who in advance
presumes the country concerned to be guilty; and which has no
expiration.
By
contrast, even the HRC mandate on Sudan examines all sides, government
and rebels; does not presume violations in advance; and must be renewed
each year. The mandate against Israel was the only one inherited in 2006
from the old Commission on Human Rights that was not subjected to the
required review, rationalization and improvement (RRI) process.
From
2008 to 2014, this mandate was held by 9/11 conspiracy theorist Richard
Falk. He continues to accuse UN Watch of having ruined his life for
getting him condemned by Ban Ki-moon and other world figures. On the
day Falk was obliged to retire, the Council appointed his wife and
colleague Hilal Elver Falk to a separate post at the HRC.

  • 7 on Israel.
    Each was initiated by Arab and Islamic states, and was devoid of any
    condemnation of Hamas terrorism or other Palestinian violations.
  • 4 on Syria. Some of the concluding resolutions included language drafted by Syria's backers.
  • 1 on Central African Republic. Criticized all parties, but failed to name government or other responsible agents.
  • 1 on Libya. At the end of Qaddafi regime.
  • 1 on Cote d’Ivoire
  • 1 on DR Congo
  • 1 on Myanmar
  • 1 on Sudan. Outcome resolution also included praise.
