UN 'Human Rights Council' refuses to remove organ stealing libel from website

The United Nations 'Human Rights Council' website accuses Israel of the blood libel of stealing organs from dead 'Palestinians' (unfortunately, that story is still out there). UN Watch wrote a letter asking that the story be removed from the website. So far, it has not happened. The blood libel is still there.

We wrote you on March 24, 2010, requesting that the UN Human Rights Council website cease hosting an anti-Semitic text (A/HRC/13/NGO/23) that, in a modern adaptation of the medieval blood libel, falsely accuses Israeli doctors of a racist conspiracy to steal Palestinian organs.

We are grateful to have recently received a reply, sent from Chief of Human Rights Council Branch Eric Tistounet. This response, however, rejects UN Watch’s request while ignoring our argument. We urge you to overturn this decision, for the reasons explained below, and to immediately remove all such hateful material from the UN website. We also call on you to speak out against the moral inversion that, in its mere four years of existence, has already become the hallmark of the UN Human Rights Council.

Read the whole thing. It doesn't sound like the Obama administration's decision to join it has had a whole lot of effect on the 'Human Rights Council.'

And Israel remains a member of the world's foremost purveyor of anti-Semitism.

What could go wrong indeed

Carl - speaking of human rights, there's a surprisingly balanced story today in the Los Angeles Times today about what Israel's military censor does- yes, she's a woman - to safeguard the country's security while making sure freedom of the press endures minimal restrictions.

Its here: Read it all

Israel's military censor has broad powers under the Defense (Emergency) Regulations of 1945 inherited from the British Mandate of Palestine. Yet these powers have been exercised sparingly in Israel's history. Sima Vaknin-Gil is correct that Israel does have a "unique model." Its one not found anywhere else in the world.
