My Mideast Punchlines: where rights make a wrong….

A new report points out that the UN’s Human Rights Council is obsessed with Israel, while turning a blind eye to the activity of 40 European companies that operate in some of the world’s occupied territories.

The report issued last month by two pro-Israel advocacy organisations – Kohelet Policy Forum and NGO Monitor – says that “some of the world’s largest industrial, financial services, and other major publicly traded companies,” are operating in Moroccan-occupied Western Sahara, Turkish-occupied Northern Cyprus, Armenian-occupied Nagorno-Karabakh and Russian-occupied portions of Ukraine.

The UNHRC has been pushing efforts to boycott businesses that are active in Jewish settlements since it adopted Resolution 31/36 on March 24, 2016. A new boycott list is due out by December.

Arab hush money and/or antisemitism combine to create the most pernicious of double standards. As far as its stance on Israel is concerned, the UNHRC is the UNIWC (United Nations Inhuman Wrongs Council).
