Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
A United Nations “fact-finding” human rights commission has come up with a quick and simple answer to the Palestinian Authority’s designation of the “war crime” of 600,000 Jews living in homes on land that never belonged to the PA: Expel them.
Concluding that Jews have no rights in Judea and Samaria or half of Jerusalem, the human rights panel stated, “Israel must … cease all settlement activities without preconditions [and] must immediately initiate a process of withdrawal of all settlers.”
The panel’s findings were a foregone conclusion after the Palestinian Authority complained to the United Nations in December of the “war crimes.” The committee interviewed 50 people who came to Jordan to testify against Israel. It is not known if the council interviewed Jews or researched documents that show that Arabs took away homes on land that was purchased by Jews years before the re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry dismissed the report’s conclusions as “systematically one-sided and biased” and added, “Counterproductive measures, such as the report before us, will only hamper efforts to find a sustainable solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.”
The Palestinian Authority’s next step may be to try to take Israel to the International Criminal Court.
