    Default Israel boycotts UN Human Rights Council

    Israel boycotts UN Human Rights Council in unprecedented move

    Not content with "coercing" African Jews to take contraceptives, Israel is now throwing it's weight around and refusing to cooperate with the UN Human Rights Council.

    Israel has boycotted a regular review by the UN Human Rights Council, the first time any country has done so.

    The move was expected as Israel has long been angered by what it claims is unfair criticism from the body.

    A decision last year to investigate Jewish settlements in the West Bank prompted Israel to announce it would no longer co-operate with the council.
    Council spokesman Rolando Gomez told the Associated Press that Israel's unprecedented absence had put the council in "new territory" because attendance of the Universal Periodic Review was mandatory.....

    Even Israel's biggest ally, the United States, had urged Israel to take part. The big question now is what - if anything - the UN can do about Israel's refusal to participate, our correspondent adds.

    At some point the gloves must come off and we face our adversaries.
    We're all Rhodesians now.

    Could mods put up a current affairs forum like the northern ireland forum out of sight.
    See what I did there?
    The world is a very puzzling place. If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.
