The United Nation Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has appointed pro-Palestinian Indonesian diplomat Makarim Wibisono as its special investigator into Israeli actions and “the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967.”
Wibisono has a history of accusations and statements against Israel, including saying that Israel has “ruthless contempt for the lives of the innocent,” and is perpetrating “callous attacks against terrorized and defenseless civilians,” according to a report in JNS.org.
Wibisono is replacing the anti-Israeli Richard Falk, or perhaps this is just a Falk 2.0 upgrade.
Either way it’s the UNHRC we’re talking about, so one can presume all the conclusions will be foregone anyway.Jewish Press News Briefs
