MK Bielski Condemns UN Human Rights Council Decision
MK Ze'ev Bielski of Kadima condemned the UN Human Rights Council's decision to set up a special investigative committee on the effect that the settler community in Judea and Samaria have on Palestinians on Saturday. "Israel, like other democratic countries, must withdraw from the the UN's Human Rights Council. The Council has no connection whatsoever with human rights, and is a disgrace to the international body," he said. The MK mentioned that "the absurd fact is that Syria is killing tens of civilians each day while the Council chooses to condemn Israel and not Syria."
