Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman criticized the UN Council on human rights adopted the day before, on Friday, March 23, from five anti-Israel resolutions.
«Israel has nothing to do in the UN Council on human rights. In the past, when I was Minister of foreign Affairs, I promoted the decision to withdraw from the Council, but when I left from this post, we went back there. Our presence in the Council giving legitimacy to the anti-Semitic resolutions. This farce must end,» wrote the head of the defense Ministry on the social network Twitter.
We will remind, on Friday, March 23, the Council on human rights adopted five resolutions condemning Israel for its occupation of Palestinian land and other illegal activities.
At the same time, only two resolutions were devoted to Syria, where hundreds of thousands of people were victims of a seven-year civil war. Country South Sudan, Myanmar, Iran and North Korea «won» every – one resolution.
The U.S. permanent representative at the world organization, Nikki Haley, commenting on the adoption of five resolutions condemning Israel’s actions, said: «When the Council on human rights refers to Israel is worse than North Korea, Iran and Syria, it shows how it is unwise and unworthy of its name».
