UN Health Assembly, Syria, Slam ‘Inhuman Israeli Practices’

Observers of the world body in Geneva said the annual hypocrisy reached a new low this year.

The annual assembly of the UN’s World Health Organization today adopted a resolution criticizing Israel — in the organization’s only debate on a specific country — with Syria protesting “inhuman Israeli practices” that target “the health of Syrian citizens.” Click here for links to documents.

The WHO resolution against Israel was not yet published, but was likely a copy of last year’s condemnation.

Observers of the world body in Geneva said the annual hypocrisy nevertheless reached a new low this year.

“To see the Assad regime point the finger at Israel out of professed concern for the health of Syrians is, frankly, a sick joke,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch, a non-governmental monitoring group accredited to the UN.

“They’ve slaughtered 80,000 of their own people, and are now busy destroying the lives of millions more. The real question is this: Why is the UN allowing mass murderers to deflect attention from their crimes by scapegoating democracies?”

“A world health assembly should be about Hippocrates, not hypocrisy,” said Neuer.

Syria’s report expressed concern that “the health conditions of the Syrian population in the occupied Golan continue to deteriorate, as a result of the suppressive practices of the Israeli occupation.”

Out of 25 agenda items on the WHO’s conference agenda, all but one address global themes.

The exception, today’s Item No. 20 — entitled “Health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan” — turned a spotlight on one specific country: Israel. No other country in the world — not Mexico, Russia, Syria, or anywhere else — is treated this way.

Despite what’s being said at the UN, the Palestinians’ own health minister recently acknowledged Israel’s extensive medical care for Palestinian children and its training of Palestinian doctors.

The UN debate also failed to mention that only last week, an Israeli hospital saved the life of a four-year-old Syrian girl, in a successful operation for a deadly heart condition.

  1. A prerogative for becoming a member of one of these UN committee’s is an absolute lack of any trace of a brain.

  2. Alan Kardon says:

    Golan is not occupied territory. It is land won in a war that you started and lost. Why did you not move them into other parts of Syria. You have killed approx. 80000 of your own people and have the nerve to claim Israel is ill treating people of the Golan Heights. Maybe you should consider Israel has a right to exist and you will be able to live in peace.

  3. Ethan Perks says:

    It might be funny if it wasn't so tragic an so comonplace.

  4. Larry Singleton says:

    The UN is a stooge to Hamas. For a primer on all this "right of return" crap the best book to read is The Haj by Leon Uris.

    Martin Kramer:
    Gaza is a place with no Israeli settlements, from which Israel has totally withdrawn to the 1967 lines, and which nonetheless has become a Hamas terror state. That’s what happens in conditions of Gazafication. So when people say that in a two-state solution, Palestinians would have a "right of return" to the West Bank and not Israel, I do not find that particularly reassuring either. Any influx of Palestinians across the Jordan poses a problem for Israel, and it is naive to dismiss it. I would like to hear how, in a two-state scenario, Gazafication of the West Bank can be prevented. I haven't heard it yet.

    Read The Haj by Leon Uris. And ask these questions:

    What year did the nation of Palestine come into existance?
    What were its national borders and what year did it cease to exist?
    What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is there no history of it?
    Name one leader to the “nation of Palestine” prior to Yasser Arafat.

    It's incredible that radical mosques in the US and Britain are still considered "hands off". Our universities are even worse. We've got the equivelent of the Hitler Youth spewing genocidal Jew Hatred in the form of the Muslim Student Association and people are actually surprised when someone ends up with their head cut off in the middle of London. Maybe you should ask why this was no surprise to me or anybody who subscribes to Jihad Watch and the Middle East Forum/Quarterly and reads Raymond Ibrahim, Daniel Pipes, Steven Emerson, Paul Sperry, Robert Spencer and others.

    The only way to respond to this situation should be with the utmost satire. The Israeli representative should fiel a statement in support of this resolution.
