…For decades, the U.N. has been at the forefront of a campaign to demonize and delegitimize Israel. That campaign is now set to sharply escalate. Last week, the U.N. approved a $4.2 million budget to establish a so-called Commission of Inquiry (COI) – essentially a Grand Inquisition that will target and vilify Israel. Under the auspices of Human Rights Council (UNHRC), a body dominated by such notorious human rights violators as China, Russia, Cuba, Pakistan, Qatar, and Venezuela, an 18-member staff will be led by Navi Pillay, a former U.N. high commissioner for human rights, with “an appalling record on Israel,” in the considered judgment of Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. The COI will be “dedicated to manufacturing charges and mounting a global chase to arrest and incarcerate Israeli Jews,” Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust, wrote in a paper for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

I join people across the globe who oppose the UN Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) open-ended “Commission of Inquiry” targeting Israel, the world’s only Jewish state and the Middle East’s only proven democracy. I reject the legitimacy of this “inquiry,” which is led by officials with long records of anti-Israel bias and a corrupt “human rights council” dominated by undemocratic regimes that violate human rights. I am outraged that the UNHRC is using dramatically more resources for this transparent effort to harm Israel, than to investigate horrific atrocities in Syria and other places around the world.
