How Navi Pillay is resucitating the Goldstone Report

Navi Pillay is the United Nations 'High Commissioner for Human Rights.' In an email on Monday, Anne Bayefsky sent me a lengthy expose of how Pillay has colluded with Richard Goldstone, Christian Tomuschat, Param Cumaraswamy, Mary McGowan Davis and others of her former colleagues from courts in South Africa and Rwanda, to demonize Israel, advance their own careers and enrich their own pockets. It's a complex web that is way too long to post, and I urge you to read the whole thing. You will be astounded at how openly and brazenly corrupt the UN is. Here's the bottom line:
So this is how the U.N. works. A High Commissioner with a clear bias, shared by the U.N.’s most unscrupulous set of state actors, contrives to create a series of committees to forward her agenda. The job descriptions are liberally sprinkled with the word “independent.” But, in fact, she ensures that individuals who are anything but “independent” fill the positions. They are either indebted to her or to each other. They share her biases or are tied to those who do. And in the face of criticism, they manufacture and give each other awards. Those with bruised reputations depart, only to be replaced by other reliable friends.

It is hard to know which of these many steps is more deplorable than the next. In the name of “independence” and “accountability,” the U.N.’s top human rights official is busy promoting a vicious campaign to demonize one U.N. member state and throwing the rules about impartiality and fairness out the window.

Commissioner Navi Pillay and her appointments, Lennert Aspegren and Mary McGowan Davis, are the wrong people to take any leadership role in demanding accountability from others.
Read the whole thing.

But don't worry - none of this will get the Obama administration to quit the 'Human Rights Council.' After all, the US already had its 'review.' What could go wrong?

If Israel feels the need to receive divine Indian guidance on its internal affairs it can dispatch a specially appointed committed of Na Nachniks to kvell at the kever of Gandhi. Total shtut.
