Over the weekend the UN Human Rights Council condemned Israel five times, this at a time when the slaughter in Syria is continuing, innocent people are being hung in the Middle East and human rights are being eroded. In many countries free media are being shut down and the UN Human Rights Council decides to condemn Israel for closing off a balcony. This is absurd. This march of hypocrisy is continuing and we will continue to condemn it and expose it.Problem is, "human rights" is in the hands of the bad guys, as is the entire UN. In the current issue of Moment magazine, Irwin Cotler comments:
What makes today's delegitimization of Israel different from classical, historical delegitimization is its masking under the rubric of all that is good, such as the struggle against racism, and doing so under the effective cover of institutions such as the United Nations. This ideological anti-Semitism is much more sophisticated and arguably a more pernicious expression of the new anti-Semitism because it is not expressed in any genocidal incitement against Jews and Israel, which is overt and public and clear.I'm not sure if I agree with the second sentence. It seems to me that Zionhass, the excessive, obsessive hatred of Israel, can often be both "more sophisticated" in that it cloaks itself in the sheep's clothing of "human rights" as well as genocidal, in that ending the "occupation" (of Israel by Jews), the endgame of the UN "human rights" thugs, would ipso facto entail the mass slaughter of Jewry.
