UNHRC Condemns Israelis Defending Themselves Against Palestinian Terrorism


UN "Human Rights" Council spokeswoman Cécile Pouilly expressed grave concern "at the unrelenting violence in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and in Israel." While she acknowledged the “unacceptable�? wave of Palestinian stabbings, shootings and car rammings that kill and injure Israelis, she reserved her deepest condemnation for Israelis' attempt to defend themselves, expressing "deep concern over reports of excessive use of force by Israeli forces" and calling for "prompt, independent and impartial investigations" of every instance where Israeli use of force resulted in the "death or injury" of Palestinian assailants. She also condemned Israel's deterrent demolition of Palestinian terrorists' houses.

There are numerous videos showing how terrorists charging at their intended victims with knives or other deadly weapons have been killed in self defense. The UNHRC's equation of aggressive terrorism with self-defense and its condemnation of the latter provides yet another example of the virulent bias of this UN body and explains why the UNHRC has rendered itself meaningless.

So Israel is criticized for killing the terrorist stabbers. On what planet is this logic? This is the U.N Logic to appease Palestinian terrorists.

Ofcourse it's common sense shooting dead an Arab murderer stabbing Israeli civilians with a knife or meat cleaver. Does the U.N think Jews should do nothing while a "Palestinian" ramming a car into a group of innocent Jews and stabbing these Israeli civilians to instead be humane and try to understand the terrorist and perhaps have him agree to be arrested. What mendacious stupidity.

Instead of criticizing Israeli's for defending themselves, the U.N should condemn Palestinian leaders for brainwashing Arabs to murder Jews by Arabs being raised in a culture that brainwashes them from birth through Fatah and Hamas controlled schools and media to want to murder Jews for 72 virgins

Israel is about the only country in the world that gets labeled the bad guy when it defends itself from terrorist organizations.

more unbalanced, veiled anti Semitic comments from UNHRC. In order to affect change one has to be objective, the UN has become biased and uneven which leads to it's illegitimacy!
