OVER THE past 13 years, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) and its predecessor, the UN Commission on Human Rights, have established seven commissions of inquiry related to the Arab-Israeli conflict – far more than in any other dispute anywhere across the globe.

All were mandated to investigate alleged Israeli wrongdoing. None has investigated terrorist groups such as Hamas or Hezbollah, or their state supporters. And each of the reports – most notably the 2009 Goldstone report on Gaza – was characterized by bias, inaccuracy, lack of military expertise, secrecy, legal distortions and the absence of fact-finding methodology.
