The UN’s Newest Assault on Israel

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


The United Nations Human Rights Council has voted to begin an ongoing, “independent” investigation into Israel’s conduct during the war that Hamas waged upon Israel last May. What this does to the Israeli population was not even mentioned in the resolution.

Possibly the most hostile, anti-Israel “inquiry” in U.N. history, this inquiry’s mandate is to investigate “all alleged violations of international humanitarian law and all alleged violations and abuses of international human rights law leading up to and since April 13, 2021, in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and all underlying root causes of recurrent tensions, instability, and protraction of conflict, including systematic discrimination and repression based on national, ethnic, racial or religious identity.”

Unfortunately, this is likely to be a Kangaroo Court; the name “Hamas,” or the fact that over 4,360 missiles rained down on Israel during the 11 days of conflict in May is not even mentioned in the resolution. And the illustrious members of the Human Rights Council include China, Russia, Cuba, Libya, Mauritania and Venezuela, none of which are bastions of human rights.

The consequence of this “inquiry” is an interminable assault on Israel which can be used in criminal legal proceedings, such as in the International Criminal Court, and will be used by those who want to further the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement to further isolate Israel from the community of nations.

Hear from one of the world’s pre-eminent legal scholars and experts on how to respond to these outrageous allegations with very far-reaching consequences.


The “Inquiry” has formally issued a “call for submissions.” It said: “The Commission invites individuals, groups and organizations to submit information and documentation relevant to its mandate.” This means that literally every human being on earth is eligible to submit information.

Jewish and non-Jewish experts, NGOs, other organizations, parliamentarians or legislators – who care about defeating modern global antisemitism embodied in this UN Commission of Inquiry – need to proffer submissions.

By making a submission to this rigged exercise, will we legitimize it? The answer is emphatically NO, the greater the number of individuals and organizations who act.

Submissions are not about changing their minds, but about educating those who remain open to learning the truth about the Jewish state and the Jewish people.  About exposing antisemitism and calling it out as such. About urging others to stand with the people of Israel and to object to the perversion of law and the falsification of right and wrong by the United Nations – for the sake of real human rights victims, now and in the future.

So stand up to #PillaysPogrom. Write now.
