Deputy Minister Fires at UNHRC's 'Lack of Shame'


Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon (Likud) issued a sharp condemnation of the "shameful" attacks against Israel at Tuesday's UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) hearing, which was attended by the mother of kidnapped teen Naftali Frenkel. 

"Hypocrisy has a limit, but no shame!" Danon fired. "[Russian President Vladimir] Putin would tear through village after village if a Russian boy was kidnapped [by terrorists], but when it comes to Israel, they demand we continue our daily routine...The UNHRC is more worried about the rights of terrorists than Israeli teenagers kidnapped on their way home from school," he added.
