Lieberman: Human Rights Council Theater of Absurd

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told President Tony Tan of Singapore, Friday, that the United Nations Human Rights Council has become a theater of the absurd in terms of hypocrisy and double standards, according to Channel 2 television.

Avigdor was referring to Thursday's decision by the council to send a fact-finding mission to investigate the impact of Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria (Shomron) and eastern Jerusalem on the rights of area Arabs.
