UNHRC minimizes rocket attacks

The UN's corrupt Human Rights Council has downplayed the seriousness of rockets fired at Israeli targets from Sinai:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the UN Human Rights Council on Friday after it ratified a Palestinian-presented resolution on last summer's war in Gaza, saying the body was unnecessarily harsh on Israel and "is not really interested in facts and human rights."

The premier issued his fiery statement shortly after a projectile launched at Israel exploded in the southern Eshkol Regional Council. Despite previous uncertainty over the rocket's origins, according to Netanyahu, the projectile was launched from the Sinai Peninsula where Islamic State-linked fighters recently carried out a series of deadly strikes on Egyptian military posts.

In his condemnation of the UNHRC, the prime minister mentioned the rocket strike along with brutal Islamic State terrorist attacks in Syria, the atrocities of the ongoing Syrian civil war and Iran's arbitrary executions of minority group members, indicating that the UN body should concentrate on those issues.

"The council has now adopted more resolutions against Israel than the total number of resolutions it has made on other countries," the premier said, adding that the UNHRC "cannot call itself a human rights council."

"Those who fear to openly attack terrorism will – in the end – be attacked by terrorism," he said in reference to the UN council.

However, Netanyahu stressed that Israel would continue to defend its citizens from those who aim to destroy it.

"The State of Israel acted to defend itself against a murderous terrorist organization," he said of Israel's operation against Hamas last summer.

Netanyahu's remarks came after the UNHRC called on Israel and the Palestinians to prosecute alleged war crimes committed in the 2014 Gaza war and to cooperate with the International Criminal Court's preliminary investigation.
Which is just a lot of moral equivalence, and nothing else. When will the UN ever be dissolved, as would be for the best?
