UN Commission Resumes "Kangaroo Court" Hearings on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

(JNS) Mike Wagenheim - The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Occupied Palestinian Territory, created by the UN Human Rights Council, is holding hearings. The commission has a never-expiring mandate, unlimited scope, and an oversized budget and staffing. All three commission members have been credibly accused of antisemitism and rabid anti-Israel bias. "The hearings held by the commission of inquiry are yet another kangaroo court, where witnesses are preselected to fit a predetermined narrative against Israel," said Nathan Chicheportiche, a spokesman for the Israeli mission to the UN in Geneva. Last Monday's opening speaker was French Palestinian lawyer Salah Hamouri, who was deported to France in December. His Jerusalem residency was revoked on charges that he was active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, classified by Israel and the U.S. as a terror group. "The commission of inquiry chose as its guest of honor for its hearings a convicted terrorist, who has been a senior member of the PFLP terror organization, been personally engaged in planning attacks against civilians, and conspired to murder Israel's former chief rabbi," the Israeli mission said. "Whitewashing Palestinian terrorism and defaming Israel are the only objectives of this commission of inquiry. They bring shame to the United Nations."
