UN 'Human Rights Council' keeps agenda item on Israel for five more years

It's been five years since the United Nations 'Human Rights Council' was formed, and two and a half years since the Obama administration decided that the United States should be a part of it. On Friday, the 'Human Rights Council's standard agenda was brought to the United Nations General Assembly for approval for another five years. The agenda, which includes an item about Israel at every meeting, was approved by a vote of 154-4.
Israel requested a vote in order to prevent the automatic approval by the UN General Assembly, and in order to allow the state to express its objections.

The US, Canada, and Palau are the only countries that joined Israel in objecting to the agenda, which passed with an automatic approval of 154 states.

Ron Prosor, who just days ago officially assumed the position of Israel's UN ambassador, told Ynet the agenda was absurd.

"These days, as Assad slaughters his citizens, Gaddafi murders his countrymen, and in Yemen people are being gunned down in the street, The Human Rights Council is dedicating a special clause to the issue of human rights in Israel," he said.

"It is utter insolence that tyrannical regimes are judging Israel, the only democratic country in the Middle East, with a dignified court system."

Prosor added, "The Human Rights Council has missed a golden opportunity to become an international body that the global community can treat with respect and seriousness."

The five-year agenda dedicates a clause number seven to Israel while all other countries in the world – including Yemen, Syria, and Libya – are united under clause four, which describes human rights violations in the entire world.

The Human Rights Council was established in 2006 and replaced the United Nations Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR), which lost its reliability, partly due to its disproportionate treatment towards Israel.


Since its establishment, the HRC has met 17 times, 14 of which meetings concluded in anti-Israel resolutions.
I guess the American presence on the 'Human Rights Council' is having a huge influence, isn't it?

Ron Prosor's reasoning is flawed. Yemen, Syria and the other countries he mentioned are not occupying land.

Those crimes they are comitting come under a different category. When Iraq occupied Kuwait it was the same. A war was declared.

Prosor should remember that. It is not unconceivable that some time in the future Israel may face the same threat WITH the US backing miltary action against Israel.

Basically Prosor's argument seems to be, "well they're doing it too". But they do not pretend to anything other than what they are...dictatorships. Israel calls itself a "democracy".

@Shy Guy,

you mean you want Israel to become a "rogue" nation? Well you have a point, at least the pretence of democracy will no longer be there.

It appears that some of the epiphanies you get spot on.

H'mmm :)

Shy Guy, I've been of the view Israel has no business staying in the UN.

If Israel isn't a member, what is the UN going to do if they don't have the Jews to kick around anymore?

Its not a body worth Jews gracing it with their presence.

The old saying is "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer."

It's solely for that reason, not for the naive, uninformed UN-ophilia I shed years ago, that I favor the US, Israel and other civilized countries maintain their UN memberships and stay active in that Sodom-on-East-River. By doing this, civilized countries can always shine a light on the evils and stupidities done in that place, and to some extent prevent or reduce them. On occasion, some good is actually done, e.g. UNICEF.

Chayma, Israel is not occupying anyone else's land.

Chayma, if it's democracy you seek, no other country is as democratic as Israel is in this Mideast and N. African sea of Arabic and Islamic oppression. Suffer!

Captain H,

Regarding UNICEF, you may want to reconsider:





And there are plenty more where that came from. UNICEF finances all those 'Palestinian' summer camps where the kids get military training.

Go and say “Anyone Elses’s Land” to the assyrian's, babylonian's, persian's, greek's, roman's, sassanian's or byzantine's!

“Anyone Else’s Land” cannot apply to those whom have fought Crusades for the same land.

“Anyone Else’s Land” cannot apply to those whom have had the longest sovereignty over the same land, than Jews ever did.

1210 years!!!! Compare that to your 400 year rule and weep! :)

How about that for longevitiy and “staying power”, Shy Guy ;)

Too bad, Chayma. Suleiman the Magnificent isn't here to smile down upon you anymore.

You're the one that's weeping. We're all smiles here. We're back. Forever. Gnash those teeth, Chayma!

@Shy Guy

No. It’s not Suleyman The Magnificent (a mere man) who smiles down on us. It’s a much greater power (God) whose “magnificence” will never cease to smile on us :)

Volume 9, Book 87, Number 127: Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet said: The Keys to the treasures of the world were given to me. And after me my people (Ummah) will carry those treasures from place to place.

Suleiman the Magnificent, is but one manifestation of this Hadith :)

You're the one that's weeping. We're all smiles here. We're back. Forever. Gnash those teeth, Chayma!

I don’t know why you’re saying that to me. Go and say that to those who were responsible for your exiles. In 640 Jewish exile in what used to be Israel ended with the conquests led by Yazid and Caliph Umar.

Carl, thanks for those links. I read them all and you've educated me. Sigh, even UNICEF!

I can remember back in the Jurassic Era when I was a kid and we Trick-or-Treated-for-UNICEF. I took it all at face value then, that by doing this, we American kids were actually helping poor kids in third world countries. Now, Trick-or-Treating-for-UNICEF has morphed into giving aid and comfort to the Islamofascist equivalent of the Hitler Youth.

So says an adherent of the religion founded by a maniac who was a lowlife highway robber, rapist and prevert and barbarian butcher.

Mohamed - piss be upon him.

Oh Shy Guy, add up the influence of all the Prophets, and then compare that to the influence of Mohammed. One Prophet against thousands of Prophets, and yet he wields the most influence.

Talking of “smiling down” as you said above, when Abraham looks down I bet he is proud of his Greatest Son, the most influential in history ;)

It’s great being Muslim :)

Michael Hart in 'The 100, A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons In History,' New York, 1978.
It is this unparalleled combination of secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad to be considered the most influential single figure in human history.
In fact, as the driving force behind the Arab conquests, he may well rank as the most influential political leader of all time.


Dr. John William Draper,M.D.,.L.D.,
A History of the Intellectual Development of Europe, London 1875, Vol. 1, pp. 329-330

Four years after the death of Justinian, A.D. 569, was born in Mecca, in Arabia, the man who, of all men, has exercised the greatest influence upon the human race... To be the religious head of many empires, to guide the daily life of one-third of the human race, may perhaps justify the title of a Messenger of God.

LOL, Chayma. No puff piece from Winston Churchill. In fact, it's prophetic:

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."

- Sir Winston Churchill, The River War, first edition, Vol. II, pages 248-50, London, Longmans, Green & Co., 1899.

@ Shy Guy

Your source (Winston Churchill) was a Christian supremacist with an agenda to demonise Islam and Muslims after his empire failed to capture the Middle East. He also believed that the Protocals were real.

My sources (Hart and Draper) were neutral, and neither had an agenda of demonising anyone.

Do you really believe that fabricated nonsense about science coming Chrisitianity? If you do, then you have a lot of learning to do. Christianity is anti science, unlike Islam, or even Judaism for that matter. If Churchill were honest he could have at least credited the contribution of English Jewry to the sciences in medieval England, which was greater than what the Christians (held back by religious dogma) had contributed. At that time, most of the knowledge in Europe was coming from the Caliphate.

The Christian Right in the USA are the modern day version of what Europe was in the dark ages.

Churchill wasn’t as gracious a loser as Richard the Lionheart!

You post crap compliments on the thuggery that is Islam and which was Mohamed and you have the gall to complain about me quoting Winston Churchill?

If the US Christian right is the equivalent of the dark ages, the Islamic hordes of today are the equivalent of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Shy Guy, you jump from point to point like a bunny in heat.

The Islamic hordes of today give much to humanity, not least by way of mineral wealth which is God given.

I did not post "crap compliments" I posted a NEUTRAL response to your insults of The Prophet. They're not true. He was none of those things. How about you compare him to the Prophets of old. Even non Muslims say the comparison is better, though we are forbidden from insulting any of the Prophets. So I could say, my superior moral code prevents me from making comparisons. But there are plenty of non Muslims who do.

In any case, he is the most influential man in history. That is not a compliment, it's a FACT.

I'm not complaining about you using Churchill as a source i'm complaining about you using a source with an bias against Muslims.

Can you not make your case with credible facts?

If you're looking for a fight you'll get one, i'm ready. I knew you were a thug and a bully when we locked horns in israellycool
