UN Session on Gaza: Dictatorships Try to Silence UN Watch

In an emergency session of the UN's Human Rights Council Wednesday, Israel came under attack from UNHRC head Navi Pillay for possible “war crimes,” and from dictatorial regimes including Iran (which denounced Israel for alleged “state terror”), Syria (which said Israel harbored “a racist and criminal mentality”), Venezuela (which spoke of “attempts to exterminate the Palestinian people”) Algeria and Sudan (both of which said Israel was engaged in “massacres and genocide”).

UN Watch's Hillel Neuer, a staunch defender of Israel against UN bias, told those assembled that all of Israel is under “brutal and relentless” attack.
