    Israel refuses Human Rights Council Review, found in violation of rights.

    A few days ago, Israel snubbed the United Nations Human Rights Council Review, a mandatory review as part of membership in the UN, with Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor stating, "After a series of votes and statements and incidents we have decided to suspend our working relations with that body." This is an unprecedented move in the history of the UN given that only one nation has refused attendance prior, that being Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that decimated the country. This story can be found here.

    Two days later, the UN released it's findings that the illegal settlement building violates both the rights of Palestinians and the Geneva Convention. In response the Israeli Foreign Ministry called the report "counterproductive" and that it in some way hampers the peace process. The Foreign Ministry then went on to state that "The Human Rights Council has sadly distinguished itself by its systematically one-sided and biased approach towards Israel. This latest report is yet another unfortunate reminder of that." They went on to reaffirm that they feel only Israel can be involved in the peace process. This story is here.

    Thoughts?

    People are beginning to wake up to Israel's shenanigans. And not because they're becoming more aware. But because Israel is going more and more batshit crazy.

    I'm pretty shocked. I hope someone takes a stand against Israel in this case. Boycotting and refusing a human rights review? What are they thinking?

    I don't think even we will support a country's "right" to avoid the membership requirements of the UN. We might not force them to participate, but I can't imagine we'd let them stay in.

    how are they even still a member of the UN at this point? it seems that they only want benefits, and tell the UN to fuck off at the slightest inconvenience

    Israel making enemies with the UN. Pretty soon no one's going to have thier back. And I honestly hate all of the "innocent victim" act. You can't backhand people and not expect something in return.

    Israel has been using the holocaust as an excuse for their shit for too long now, it may have washed with previous generations but not this one.

    Imo Israel is the scariest country in the world. They are worst country obviously but Israel, as a part of western coutries backed by the USA and hatted by whole middle east, is like some super mad dog. They are going deeper and deeper in madness, until every single country turn against them. And when we reach that point samson option may be a realistic solution to them...

    I have to say, people keep saying this on this forum, but I haven't seen anyone supply evidence, beyond a few Netanyahu quotations. With some posters it's almost as if the history of the holocaust is treated as some sort covert Israeli indoctrination. I think Israels policies are very cynical and self-serving, but even General Nasser's Pan-Arabism - behind the secular sheen - was unity through hatred of Israel.
    So what happened between you and this Renwick customer?

    Evidence or not, they get away with shit no other country would be allowed and still remain in the good graces of the USA and other major powers.

    Of that, there's no doubt, but I don't think politicians are pressured by holocaust guilt tripping either. The US continues to support Pakistan because it has nuclear weapons, and opposed India (who Nixon was suspicious of) even though they aren't the warmest of allies. I think US support has more to do with long standing alliances.

    Which is worrying considering the amount of nuclear arsenal they possess.

    Yes, because I'm sure the UN is posed to kidnap all of our handicap children.

    Isn't that the latest conspiracy?

    Alleged nuclear arsenal, they still have not declared what they have or that they even exist. They are not very open at all with the rest of the world.

    If they were, they'd be the most condemned nation in the world for decades of playing the victim card while persecuting millions.
    In fact as far as I'm aware the UK is the only european nation that outright bans guns for civilians.
    Shotguns I'll give you (provided you're allowed 12 and larger gauges... because I mean... come on...) but not .22s.
    This is why people ban guns. Gun supporters don't know what guns are.

    That's evidence that they get away with shit, not that holocaust guilt tripping is why they get away with shit.
    When did I say "OMG 100% INCONTROVERTIBLE PROOF OF HOLOCAUST GUILT TRIPPING!!1!!!1!oneeleven". I posted proof that, indeed, Israel gets away with TONS of shit that no other country does. Israel violates UN statutes CONSTANTLY with 0 repercussions. Iraq only PARTIALLY disobeyed ONE statute, and they were invaded.
