The “inquiry” will have a generous budget to facilitate its mandate to ferret out “discrimination and repression based on national, ethnic, racial or religious identity” and to find discrimination and repression at the hands of Jews. This is full-frontal anti-Semitism, an inversion of the truth, such that the Jewish victims of racism and religious hatred become its perpetrators.
This attack on Israel is unprecedented even in the antisemitic history of the United Nations human rights system in terms of the “inquiry’s” funding, staffing, and permanence.
This is a CALL TO ACTION for concerned people everywhere… the verdict of this kangaroo court is a foregone conclusion but there is an opportunity to challenge it:
• The Commission has issued a Call for Submissions” inviting “individuals, groups, and organizations to submit information and documentation relevant to its mandate.”
• Answering the “Call for Submissions” en masse provides an opportunity to influence history for all those committed to combating modern anti-Semitism and defending the right of Israelis to exist unmolested in their own country, the UN member state of Israel.
