UNRWA foreign staff flee Gaza to Israel after Hamas allows protests, death threats. Yet not 1 word criticizing Hamas from @UNRWA, its chief @PKraehenbuehl, spokespersons @ChrisGunness & @Fernande_VT or Gaza chief @matzschmale. But they attack Israel daily. haaretz.com/middle-east-ne… These international UNRWA managers knowingly employ teachers who praise Hitler & preach anti-Semitism & terrorism. I sent @matzschmale our info & he denied everything. Now they are literally running to Israel—from their own Gaza employees—to save their own lives. EU funds this.

BREAKING: After Jeremy Corbyn refuses four times on Channel 4 interview to answer whether he regrets taking money from the Iranian TV station that aired filmmaker Maziar Bahari’s forced confessions under torture, Bahari calls on Corbyn to finally confront his past and apologize. Bahari, whose labor activist father suffered years in the Shah’s jails, wonders why Labor’s Corbyn is close to Iran’s Islamic regime, “one of the most anti-union governments in the world. Unions are almost outlawed and union activists are regularly arrested and tortured in Iran.”

.@UN_HRC Why did you invite discredited William Schabas to address the UN when on grounds of conflict of interest in 2015 he was ignominiously forced to resign from your Gaza inquiry after it was revealed he had failed to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO?

#HRC39 #ethics In his pathetic resignation letter, Schabas explained that he never bothered to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO because....no one ever asked him. "I was not requested to detail my past activities concerning Palestine..."

We're about to release a 60-page report documenting 10 years of staggering, system-wide @UN inaction on antisemitism. This oped ignores that. It rightly praises @AntonioGuterres for deleting a biased report, yet shortchanges @NikkiHaley who made him do it. wsj.com/articles/a-rig… We are not told, for example, about how CERD, the UN treaty body on racism, has never once addressed the virulent and murderous incitement to antisemitism rampant in Arab and Muslim countries.

I mourn the loss of Charles Krauthammer. I was from a young age a great admirer of the singular wisdom and style of his columns. He took a stand. I met him by chance, at the Supreme Court of Israel, and my hero proved magnanimous, friendly and kind. RIP. nytimes.com/2018/06/15/opi… For me, as an aspiring writer on politics, fellow Montrealer and McGill graduate Dr. Charles Krauthammer was the ultimate role model I could look up to. (Below: Krauthammer elected Editor in Chief of Mcgill Daily, Sept. 25, 1969. "He has no journalistic experience whatever.")

@amnesty .@amnesty Thanks for asking. Though we believe in staying in the ring to fight the bigots, here you go:
1. Members of the UNHRC include China, Cuba, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Egypt, Iraq, UAE, DR Congo & other thieves, murderers & rapists.
unwatch.org/un-watch-conde… @amnesty 2. @UNHumanRights Council rep Alfred de Zayas, ex-Secretary of the UN Human Rights Committee, praised Venezuela & posted propaganda photos to deny mass hunger caused by the regime’s failed policies—even as hospitals there are filled with starving children. unwatch.org/u-n-experts-ve…

1. One name sums up the UN Human Rights Council: Jean Ziegler. The longest-serving expert, he created the Qaddafi Human Rights Prize & won it himself.
2. Sadly, UNHRC affect hearts & minds.
3. U.S. should send a Nikki Haley clone to speak truth to power.

Palestinian rep just gave speech @UN_HRC on "right to participate in peaceful protests" days after their riot police crushed huge protest in Ramallah, beating dozens of protesters including young women, arresting wounded from the hospital, smashing phones & journalist cameras. "Members of the Palestinian security forces, dressed in civilian clothes, knocked her to the ground, as two policemen joined in and began kicking the bleeding, terrified woman." facebook.com/QudsN/videos/2…

Today's @UN meeting will totally reject this @nikkihaley text: "Condemns Hamas for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel & for inciting violence along the boundary fence, thereby putting civilians at risk, demands that Hamas cease all violent activity and provocative actions..." "...further condemns the diversion of resources in Gaza to construct military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas, when such resources could have addressed the critical needs of the civilian population..."

Please don't speak about the 6 million Jews murdered by Hitler when you embrace his heirs—the terrorist groups Hamas & Hezbollah who openly advocate genocide against Israel's 6.5 million Jews—as your "friends" who seek "social justice" & "peace". Reminder: .@jeremycorbyn: "Tomorrow evening it will be my pleasure and my honour to host an event in parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. I have also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak as well..."

Of my 42,000 followers here, hundreds are UN officials, ambassadors & NGO activists. As we begin Day 5 of #IranProtests, are any of you aware of a single United Nations entity or official who has spoken out for the human rights of protesters arrested, beaten, tear-gassed & shot? 1. Most deafening silence: U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid al-Hussein, the Jordanian prince who jumps to condemn Israel & U.S. His refusal to say one word for #Iran's victims violates his duty to protect civil and political rights for all. un.org/documents/ga/r…

1. Israel pulls out of UNESCO.
Why?
Because it demonizes the Jewish state, elevates murderous regimes, betrays mission to protect education, science, culture.

And now a thread: the story of the U.N.'s treatment of Israel, told through statistics.

1. From 2012 through 2015, the U.N. General Assembly adopted 97 resolutions criticizing countries; 83 of those 97 were against Israel, or 86%.
Source: unwatch.org/un-israel-key-… 2. From its creation in June 2006 through June 2016, the U.N. Human Rights Council—which stands for equality, objectivity & impartiality—adopted 68 resolutions on Israel and 67 resolutions on the rest of the world combined.

1. Even within the rogues' gallery that is the U.N. human rights Council, this panel speaking now is the mother of all rogues' galleries. 2. Jean Ziegler, panelist who just addressed @UN_HRC—defending Maduro regime—is co-founder & 2002 laureate of the Qaddafi Rights Prize.
