Watch: UN's Schabas Called Netanyahu 'Greatest Threat to Israel'


A video clip has been revealed exposing the anti-Israel bias of Canadian Law Professor William Schabas, who last week was appointed to head the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) committee on allegations of Israeli "war crimes" in Gaza.

In a 2010 panel discussing "lawfare" at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Schabas referenced a quote by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in which he listed the key threats on Israel as being the Iranian nuclear program, rockets aimed at Israeli civilians, and Judge Richard Goldstone.
