Prosor to Ban: Schabas Leading Gaza War Probe is Like ISIS Hosting UN's Religious Tolerance Week

Israel's Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, met today with UN Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon, asking for his condemnation of the appointment of William Schabas, who is well known for his enthusiastic criticism of Israel, and who has been designated to head the United Nations Human Rights Council’s probe into Israel’s actions during Operation Protective Edge over the past two months.

"It is an insult to the intelligence and a show of the UN's moral bankruptcy to place a proclaimed Israel-hater at the head of such an inquiry," Ambassador Prosor said.
