MK Ghattas: Rachel Frenkel’s UN Plea- an Embarrassment


MK Basel Ghattas spoke on Wednesday about Rachel Frenkel - mother of captured boy Naftali Frenkel, and her speech at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva.

“Yesterday we witnessed an embarrassing display when the mother of one of the abducted boys, who should be amid a storm of true and honest emotions, was taken advantage of by the Israeli Foreign Ministry in a propaganda performance. The use of true emotion and human tragedy for the purpose of political achievement was evident in the manner in which most of the Council’s members responded and expressed anti-occupation sentiments.”
