A Hamas win at the 'human rights council'

Thanks to the Obama administration, Hamas managed to hold a meeting at the United Nations 'human rights council' on Friday to promote the destruction of the State of Israel.
One of Friday’s three speakers was Sameh Habeeb, head of the media department of the “Palestinian Return Centre.” The event flyer, which clearly identified the Center as a “coorganizer” and named its representative as a speaker, was authorized to be posted at the UN conference room and distributed on UN NGO-reserved tables. And yet, as the Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center has documented, the Palestinian Return Centre is one of the central institutions through which Hamas operates in Britain.

Here is some of what Habeeb had to say while speaking in a UN room, at a UN-provided microphone, at a UN-advertised event associated with the UN’s top human rights body: “In 1947, 1948 and 1949 the Palestinian refugees were ethnically cleansed by the Israeli gangs.... Some Arab armies came to Palestine to fight the Zionist project, which came from all over Europe to take over Palestine and to make it as a national home for the Jews, although it was always the national home for the Palestinians for thousands and thousands of years.”

Habeeb, a well-known radical and “one state solution” campaigner, didn’t come alone. Various publications of his Palestinian Return Center were made readily available on UN premises.

There was the pamphlet with this bigoted diatribe: “a racist ideology is inherent in political Zionism and... is being implemented as a political project by the state of Israel.

Political Zionism idealizes and advances a racist and chauvinistic... religion and nationalism.”

And there was the map with the word “Palestine” splashed across the entirety of what is now Israel. Advocating the elimination of a UN member state, the most elementary violation of the UN Charter, is evidently acceptable literature in the belly of the UN human rights beast.

A third handout, entitled “Apartheid against Palestinians,” analogized Israelis to Nazis: “The Israeli regime is based on... race and religious supremacy... Modern nation states formed through these corrosive ideals scarred the 20th century, including in Germany and the South African apartheid regime.”

This is the second time in two consecutive sessions of the Human Rights Council that Hamas and its messengers have been allowed into the UN fold. At the last session of the Council in March, a Hamas member of the Palestinian Legislative Council, Ismail al- Ashqar, was given a UN pass, seated in a UN room at the invitation of a UN-accredited NGO, and permitted to speak at another Council “side-event.” Though UN organizers issued the standard disclaimer about what is said during such events, applications to hold any such meeting are first vetted and approved by UN staff.
Read the whole thing and wonder why the United States is still part of (and paying 22% of the budget of) the 'human rights council.'

Well it's patently clear that a second term Obama will have Hamas over to the White House. We already accept that the Muslim Brotherhood will be given a prominent visitor's role at his inauguration but while it's still premature to offer the same thing to Hamas, they will be given White House recognition, visits and such. Obama will tell us that arming Egypt and favoring Hamas over Israel is 'leading from behind'. Between all of this and giving a wink and a nod to nuclear Iran, the upside is that following the mid term elections of 2014 the Democrats will be out of power for a generation or more. IF he wins reelection he'll be the last Democratic President for 30 years. But if we're lucky he won't be America's LAST President ever which seems to be his plan.
