Panel set up by UN Human Rights Council say Israeli troops may have committed crimes against humanity in response to violent demonstrations along the Gaza border

Heh, the UN once again proving it is a(very sad, pathetic) joke.

 

Israel on Thursday hit back furiously at a UN Human Rights Council's report claiming Israeli soldiers intentionally fired on civilians and could have committed crimes against humanity during a string of crackdowns against Palestinian demonstrators last year in Gaza that left 189 people dead.

 

The independent Commission of Inquiry mandated by the Human Rights Council said more than 6,000 people were shot by military snipers using live ammunition to repel protesters near the separation fence. The panel showed video of shootings of protesters as it issued a report on the violent March of Return protests the Palestinian launched in March, 2018.

 

The goverment called the report "hostile, false and biased," while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the report reflected the council's "obsessive hatred" of Israel.

 

 "The UN Human Rights Council is setting new records of hypocrisy and lies stemming from its obsessive hatred toward Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East. Hamas is the one firing missiles at Israeli civilians, throwing explosive devices and carrying terrorist activity during demonstrations on the Gaza border," Netanyahu said.
 

"Israel won’t allow Hamas to violate its sovereignty and hurt its citizens and will preserve its right to defend itself. IDF soldiers will continue defending with determination Israeli communities and civilians from Hamas and other terror organizations funded by Iran, which declares its intention to annihilate Israel," the prime minister added.

 

Acting Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz echoed Netanyahu's sentiments, saying that the council had "produced another hostile, mendacious and slanted report against the State of Israel ... No one can deny Israel the right to self-defense and the obligation to defend its citizens and borders from violent attacks." 

 

The three-person panel said civilians who did not pose an "imminent threat" were among those killed and injured. It acknowledged significant violence linked to the demonstrations, but said they did not amount to combat campaigns, essentially rejecting an Israeli claim of terror activity by Palestinian armed groups.
 

Israel dismissed the panel's comments on these Gaza militants as "absurd." 

 

The panel said Israel needed to do more to allow the injured, even today, to gain access to proper medical care, and urged Israel's government to authorize a "meaningful" investigation into the events.
 

The commission also faulted Hamas, which runs Gaza, for not preventing use of incendiary airborne devices tied to

kites and balloon that scorched swathes of Israeli farmland during the protests.

 

The report was based on 325 interviews and meetings with victims, witnesses, government officials and members of civil society from all sides, and more than 8,000 documents.
 

The commission said it heard from 15 contributors from the Israeli side, including non-governmental organizations, but got no cooperation from the Israel government.
 

The panel said its mandate was to identify those it believed responsible for the violations, and it planned to hand over a confidential file with such information to UN human rights chief Michele Bachelet, who could hand it over the International Criminal Court and national authorities.
 

The Israeli government has repeatedly lambasted alleged bias against Israel by the 47-member Human Rights Council. The Trump administration pulled the US out of the council last year, citing in part such alleged bias.
 

Israel is the only country in the world whose rights record comes up for discussion at every HRC session, under "Item 7" on the agenda. Item 7 on "Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories" has been part of the council's regular business almost as long as it has existed.

There are atrocities on both sides honestly. The only difference is either side thinks those atrocities are justified.

Agreed. And I think the US needs to stay out of it other than from a neutral standpoint trying to broker peace between the two sides. We shouldn't be giving either side weapons or military support.

You do realize Israel doesn't receive nor needs to receive any military support from the U.S. and either buys or makes its own weapons? Sure, some of the funding to buy American weapons comes from the us government but nevertheless goes right back to us companies.

Anyway the most absurd part in this "report" that for some reason isn't mentioned in the article I quoted is that whoever released it also called to not enable those they see as "responsible"(IE the soldiers who were doing their job defending Israel's sovereignty and borders) to fly, and to arrest them when they land somewhere 🤣

 

and I will tell you right now that the only appropriate response if that was to ever take place is for Israel and any other self respecting western democracy to boycott whatever country or airline engages in that.

I don't think that money should be coming from our government. In fact I don't think we should give a dime to any other country while we have people living in the streets in our own country. Especially veterans. If you are living in the streets simply because you are lazy or made poor choices I would exclude you from my statement.

 

As far as the Israel Palestine conflict goes I see it as two children who have been bickering for decades because they both want it their way and are unwilling to compromise. Yes Israel has a right to exist. But on the other hand the Palestinians were there before the modern day nation of Israel was created and they deserve to have a place to live. The Palestinians refuse to recognize Israel and Israel it seems won't be happy until all the Palestinians are wiped out or leave. It is a messy situation that I would prefer my country not take a side in. I would be okay with us acting as a neutral mediator but that's it.

There are several things about your statement that are simply factually wrong, but we've had so many discussions about that here already that I see no reason to get into it again.
