Israeli President: World is 'Upside Down' after UN Creates Commission to Probe Israeli 'War Crimes'
CBN- Israel rejected outright a United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolution creating a commission of inquiry in response to accusations of war crimes.
It’s the first time the UNHRC created a permanent fact-finding commission against a UN member state.
“Today's shameful decision is yet another example of the UN Human Rights Council's blatant anti-Israel obsession. Once again, an immoral automatic majority at the Council whitewashes a genocidal terrorist organization that deliberately targets Israeli civilians while turning Gaza's civilians into human shields,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.
“This while depicting as the 'guilty party' a democracy acting legitimately to protect its citizens from thousands of indiscriminate rocket attacks. This travesty makes a mockery of international law and encourages terrorists worldwide,” Netanyahu added.
The resolution comes just a week after Israel’s 11-day war with Hamas. Hamas and Islamic Jihad launched more than 4,300 rockets at Israeli civilians, with some 680 falling short and landing inside Gaza.
