UN Human Rights Council censures Israel five times

March 26, 2009 20:42

The United Nations Human Rights Council on Thursday approved five anti-Israel resolutions in which it took issue with Israel's continued settlement activity, its treatment of West Bank Palestinians and its January military operation in Gaza. Canada was the sole country to object to all the resolutions. They were joined in one instance by the Netherlands, Germany and Italy, who opposed the resolution against Israeli military activity in Gaza. To date the council has passed 26 anti-Israel resolutions out of the 32 motions to censure countries which it has approved since its inception in June 2006.
