UN-Sponsored Meeting Equates Israelis with Nazis

(National Review) Anne Bayefsky - On April 3-4, 2012, at the behest of Arab nations, the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People convened a meeting in Geneva on Palestinian "political" prisoners held in Israeli prisons. The committee was created by the UN General Assembly back in 1975 to implement the infamous "Zionism is racism" resolution. While the resolution was rescinded 16 years later, the committee marches on. The "keynote" address was delivered by Issa Qaraqe, the PA Minister for Prisoners' Affairs, who asserted that "there was a call at the highest level of the Israeli state for concentration camps to be set up for the rounding up and extermination of Palestinian people." Shawqi Al Issa, director of the Ensan Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Bethlehem, stated: "There are confessions by Israel that there are medical experiments done on prisoners." When the UN experts, diplomats, and NGO participants had finished analogizing Israelis to Nazis and Palestinians to Holocaust victims, claiming Jews have no historical ties to the Land of Israel, and declaring open season on Israeli men, women, and children in the name of self-determination, Riyad Mansour, the Palestinians' lead UN representative, thanked the UN "for organizing this very important conference."
