Today, Navi Pillay, Chair of the UNHRC’s “Commission of Inquiry” will be presenting her latest report to the U.N. General Assembly. Jeff Mendelsohn, Executive Director of Pro-Israel America United, has issued the following statement in response:
“The latest ‘report’ released by the United Nations’ biased Commission of Inquiry targeting Israel is yet another illegitimate attempt to undermine Israel’s very sovereignty and promote a ‘blame Israel” narrative.
The report ignores the history of the territories and turns a blind eye to the repeated attempts by Israel to resolve the ongoing conflict. The report mentions Israel nearly 300 times but fails to mention terrorist groups like Hamas and their rocket attacks onto innocent Jewish and Arab Israelis even once.
The only thing not shocking about the report is its forgone conclusion. There is no semblance of credibility left for the unjust, biased UN COI or its overtly antisemitic commissioners. It is past time to disband this illegitimate Commission, and Congress must immediately pass the COI Elimination Act to ensure no American funds are used to support it.”
